    • Rare now cause they ended up at wreckers and crushed. Otherwise common and standard for the time of production.

    • yes line 2 was for capris,louisville trucks,late xf utes (not all of them ,i guess how busy it was on the week)searching last night i found another JL40 ute so if you have one they are very rare,my 92 xf ute was definatley a JG40.
    • after hours of searching i found the answer its broadmeadows line 2,i was shitting myself thinking i bought a nissan xf ute with ford badge lol.
    • i have just bought a 2/89 xf ute with JL40 chassis number ? i have never seen this in 35 years of playing with falcons,i know JH is brisbane and JG is broadmeadows but where is JL ? could be a x file.
    • Using a 6 cylinder t5 will mean you have to get a crs bellhousing as the 6 cylinder t5 has a different length input shaft to a v8 one, the diff will be fine and the t5 will hold up reasonably well as long as you don't abuse it ( when I was a p plater I broke many of them with a warmed up 4.0l but they were pretty well abused)
    • i would say generally yes, the diffs are strong (when not worn out)   and the T5 in good condition are also strong. i'd consider getting it checked and new bearings fitted if in the budget, or finding a spare in advance, they are getting old now, the newest being 25yrs old.    naturally if you are abusing them anything is breakable.  
    • Hi all, I’m in the very early stages of planning a new project and was wondering if the existing 5 speed gearbox and diff in an XH XR6 would be up to task if the car underwent a V8 conversion? Not looking for crazy power but planning around 300-350rwhp.   Cheers     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • Where is the pump wired in? And are you still running a carby, If the pump is hooked in somewhere it shouldnt be it might burn a fuse/fusible link (there are two yellow wires near the battery that go into a plug also a seperate green wire but I'm not sure if that's for the est). Also if you're running a carby I'd hook the mechanical pump back up. With the dissy if you really just need it going, just run a separate keyed wire to the dissy and coil and fuck with the est down the line. Remember ford spent millions inventing this shit and it does its job well. 
    • Just wondering how do you install a timing chain on one of these. I've got rollermaster kit with both gears and a chain and got the old gear off the crank but the new one is a tight fit. Do I just press it on with the harmonic balancer? Or is there a procedure for this.
    • We've got good news all round, the sludge problem isn't as bad as I thought with a couple of flushes with engine oil while running the pump by hand got everything visibly cleanish (no visible sludge or obstructions but everything is still kinda black). The cam bearings look pretty shitty but no deep scratches in them so I drowned the cam and lifters in assembly lube and put them in and everything is rotating smoothly. I'm still waiting on a timing chain and balancer but after that I'm putting everything back together.
