    • Hey mate thanks for the response. I know the electronic shutoff is working but it has a vacuum plunger that I haven't tested yet. I am running from a bottle as I have the fuel tank for rust repair s under the tank. I haven't checked those line joiners yet as I have been getting fuel to the carby but I'll give them a look just incase it's starving out.¬†
    • I haven't got time tonight but should be able to give you some more things to check tomorrow.¬† ¬† but off the top of My head, you should check your fuel cut solenoid on the carby is getting power/(or vacuum if that's it's style) ¬† cars this old with low kms often have stuffed hoses and there's a chance it's sucking air from the fuel line joins(one under the floor of passengers left foot area is a common issue)
      try running fuel from a jerry can/bottle instead of the fuel tank first up to rule out that side of things
      i may think of more overnight or @SPArKy_Dave may have a clue to look into    the ignition lock caused @CHESTNUTXE some grief in the same way, i hadn't had many issues removing them in the past but they can be annoying (low kms = less worn to jiggle pick, but a locksmith could get it out easily if you removed it (sometimes easier to remove the steering column if you can't access the bolts easy.. *tamper proof you'll need to cut a slot in them or chisel them undone)  
    • Hey fellas. Recently I got myself an 86 XF Falcon Ute with the plan to get her on the road and daily it. However I've got several snags with the biggest being the engine not running. It's an unleaded 250 xflow with est. The closest I can get it to running is when I hold it at wide open throttle and even then it barely gets to idle rpm and spits out of the carby. The motor is in good condition with 130000 KMs on it and running dead on 150 psi on all cylinders. I have rebuilt and then replaced the carby (original one was an 86 DA TD and the replacement is an 86 DA TD not sure if that matters) checked the timing with it being on ¬į6 while cranking and has strong spark on all cylinders. I have run out of ideas and hope someone here can help me with getting it running. To make things worse the ignition locked up after I took the key out and will not move so I have had to pull the switch and use a screwdriver. I have tried wiggling it and moving the steering wheel off the lock with no luck so I'm gonna unbolt the lock for now and see if I can free it up. Any advice appreciated and thanks in advance
    • Worked like a charm. This mount is way better because it goes into the circular space underneath the gearbox, which the rectangular mount doesn‚Äôt really do, so understand now why it would be stronger. Thanks @deankxf ¬† Motor and Gearbox is pretty much in. I just need a nut¬†for that mount which I am going to get now. ¬†Just need to finish off some wiring / mount the dash back up,¬†plumb the power steering, extractors and then I‚Äôm getting very close to first start.
    • i can't remember,¬† i have a feeling it fits into the mounting bolt as is (maybe the mount has a square at the end of the threads even to locate it) ¬† the EB cross member¬†mounts have a square hole also, so i'd say ford must have been considering this mount option at some point
    • Thanks mate. Rod Shop. also have their own version of this as well. Do you have to drill out that square whole on the cross members, or does that single bolt fit straight thrugh?
    • Thanks deankxf. ¬†On the third photo posted by¬†zkfairlane, there is a link running vertically down into the depths of the engine bay attached to the throttle lever. ¬†Mine had the spring running from there to the EGR valve and no lever. ¬†I cannot find a reference to the lever in my XF workshop manual. ¬†
    • i haven't got any photos handy at the moment, but this thread has a lot of info in it if you have time¬†to check it out
         
    • My XF 4.1 unleaded ute was running very poorly. ¬†I refreshed the carburettor and it is vastly improved,¬†running¬†sweet except when quickly opening the throttle in second and third in the three-on-the tree manual. ¬†I suspect that there is a vacuum leak at the site of the hastily removed and blanked off EGR valve, which I will get back to. ¬† ¬† The carburettor looked like a mix of XD and XE parts. ¬†There was a wound spring on the throttle shaft, which is still there, and¬†another about 5cm long attached to¬†¬†the throttle lever at one end with the other end looped around the nearby EGR bolt, which can't have been right. ¬†I am running the car without it and it has been fine. ¬†Is there meant to be another spring and what are the attachment points?
    • i've never seen one pulled apart like the 2 bolt one's do, they get a bit sloppy eventually (original ford ones are not solid rubber, they have some dampening in them)
      due to the one center bolt, they allow a lot of twist and therefore don't break i think.    for $200 odd, the tuff mounts one is the 2 bolt type that would be strong
