  1. Today
  2. that's not heaps of km's i would expect you'd get another year out of them, keep an eye on tyre wear and if it gets any worse in clunks.
  3. Probably 15,000-20,000 year
  4. And itd only be enough time to collect bits and save for the labour to fix it so that’s why am wondering if what people did in the links will allow that time
  5. Last service just gone they said it needs new bushes at rear. tyres aren’t wearing uneven that and noticing just annoying little clunk and while they said to do them at some point am wondering how long you could go
  6. how many km do you do per year? are the tyres wearing unevenly? if tyres aren't wearing and not many kms driven you could go 10yrs .. if tyres are wearing now and you do 50,000kms a year they probably need doing yesterday. how did you find out?
  7. Hi Just found out all rear bushes in the ba need doing at some point they’re just starting to wear. have seen on youtube some people in usa spraying transmission stop leak on the bushes to rejuvenate them and wondering wether that might work for now. They do have to be done at some point but thinking if it’ll give a year it might be worth spraying as many as you can get to how long would you give it before they need doing if they only started as need time to save and collect bits Thanks

    There are still a lot of used but rebuildable 302 heads kicking around, can be had for not much. Still, in the States their aftermarket alloys are a lot cheaper than ours, and rebuilding factory iron 2Vs would be less and less feasible for HP per dollar. If he insists on getting hold of some, maybe you could strike a deal with him? Sent from my CPH2197 using Tapatalk

    CLEVELAND ENGINE TALK

    i bought a heap of parts from america to finish off the engine ,now just a waiting game until everything arrives,good thing is i made a friend over there who has a mountain of 400s and 429/460s,we video on messenger and he is dying for a set of 302c closed heads (lol),he finds aussie clevo stuff a real goldmine,and giving him the rundown on info about how we got the tooling from the states then started pouring our own clevo stuff was a real eye opener for him,he did not even no about the D1AE high nickel 400 block i had,he has gone on a rampage looking one in the states.amazing when you find someone on the other side of the world that is right into all the stuff you love yourself,we have already got an idea about loading his container full of $200 complete 460s and 400s as where he is there is a abundance of them,a once a year shipment should be plenty to muck around with and sell,well thats the idea at this stage ,from the info i have dug up so far its double the price of a container ATM,from what it used to be,and our dollar is poor as well,but will keep it on the backburner for the moment,probly one of the reasons its very hard to find a 460 engine latley.if the deal works out i would love a few 429s just for info sake,you no,usual strip and rebuild while photos and description.

    9 inch air filter for weber 34

    I had a TFI chrome 9x2" filter on my XF for a bit before I fitted new engine as filter stud stripped out of the carby.

    I think the bloke I bought it off got ripped bad. I'll have to cut the floor of that fibreglass area out to get to the tank. Guy who originally put that in must have been convinced he would never have to change a fuel pump!

    Should be a good project! I'm interested to see where it's gone rusty.

    Oh it is rusted out! I'll grab some photos tomorrow. So I paid $600 for it. I'm happy with that for the diff, fuel tank etc. that I can use. I'll sell off the bits that are usable and then scrap the shell. Guy I bought it off, paid $2999 for it last September!

    I'd go for the acid etch prime method first.. Worst case scenario it might chip and if it does, just wash it down with thinners to get the paint off then sand or fine blast it before painting again. I reckon the etch will be good enough though. Not something your going to be handling all the time.

    This may end up being the option I think...

    looks good, got some light truck trailer tyres also.. that van looks good for the money too.. stick another diff in it and sell it again for $1000 after a wash

    You can paint over chrome, you will only see the outer edge right? Get some rough as guts sandpaper, tear the chrome finish up so the paint has something to bond to, then cross sand with 80 grit, that will hold colour. Smooth surface can also be sprayed over with etching spray and then sprayed with black also. Sent from my motorola edge 20 pro using Tapatalk

    9 inch air filter for weber 34

    Has anyone got a round 9 inch air filter on the 34 ADM carby? I'm trying to hunt down a black air filter, which they do for the likes of the Holley 350 & 500 but no bueno for the Weber. Redline do a chrome option https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/REDLINE-AIR-FILTER-9-X-55mm-SUIT-WEBER-ADM-XE-XF-FALCON-16-22-/152454690051 and I guess powder coating black would be an option... I'll touch base with a few suppliers but wondered if anyone here had been down the same path.

    i'm pretty sure only one pipe or 2 needed mods on those factory pipes into X series.. actually that was into XP that i'm thinking of.. might not be an issue on XF .. soon find out, exhaust mob with some fabrication skills could do it easy...(aka probably not midas etc)
