Just a heads-up for anyone still running these old beasts, a bloke on an XD-XF Facebook parts group is flogging his shifter pivot kit, turns it into a short-shift and eliminates the nylon thread issue.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Yeah, 17/100 blew me away for such a big unit too! I reckon if it had sane tyres (ie not 35" muddies) then it might even squeak in 15/100 but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

I've changed intakes a few times on mine, spread bore to AFD hi-rise, to factory square bore, To AFD hi-rise to factory square bore (yes twice) & finally performer,
I've only ever removed dissy cap & leads, then just the intake.
I finished off the car today.
wipers and ID plates are off, exterior door handles and mirrors are off. Its ready to go to the panel shop.
in total, it was about 2.5 days worth of work to get it to where it is, from a complete car. Goes to show how simple it is compared to the XF, which took me weeks worth of work to get it prepped for the panel shop.
That's an old English tradition. To leave a coin with something you built.Under my house one of the builders in 1964 had placed an Australian penny on one of the supports. House was built in 1964, coin is 1964.
It's supposed to bring good fortune as long as the two things remain together.
