    Hi-res photo of the sticker, as flat as possible in orientation. Measure for size and include the measurements in the photo you send. Make sure they're the right sort, eg metric or imperial. Surely that will get you sorted.

    Keys ๐Ÿ”

    you need to find a locksmith that can cut them, the machine back in the day was very expensive and not many had it, but these days with the keys being around a long time they might be common. i bought the key blank off ebay and saved a whopping $10 .. in hindsight i'd have just payed the extra to the locksmith, because we need these guys in business(i've since had 2 ignion barrels rebuilt by My local one.. try doing that on ebay)

    Plenum repair

    If it's not there for strength, I dare say it could be to help prevent cabin drumming (chassis vibration). Sent from my CPH1903 using Tapatalk

  10. G'day, just wondering If anyone remembers the magazine year/month (I assume it was street machine or like performance fords maybe) that did an article on the gauge swap of autometer gauges into the original xy gt dash, from memory it was a super neat and relatively straight forward conversion, thanks Warren

    Apparently Graffix Unlimited can make almost any sticker with a good sample. Never used them, but others on here have.

    i just like the look of an original motor with big blue air cleaner n power by ford rocker covers,i worked hard all day making a witches brew to clean all parts,and fully pulled apart 1 head and found 1 valve very hard to get out but got it out in the end,i also flushed the sump that was full of chewed dizzy gear,will take heads ,sump,rocker covers to machine shop to hot tank,i think i will just stick with the factory heads as its numbers matching ,just get them machined a bit and 030 pistons i orderd thismorning will bump it up a tad plus machining of the block will help too,later maybe can put a nice set of alloys on it with smaller chamber.only thing im worried about is this original d1ae rocker cover sticker i have trolled usa sites for one but havent been able to find one yet,i have a 1973 orange one only cost minimal coin,but i dont want to hot tank the cover and wreck the sticker i will persist in trying to find one if not will just be carfull and clean around it ,mask it up or something .

    WARNING - Ultra King shock absorbers = DANGER!

    the KYB's are much better in every way than the Monroe, they only last about 45.000km but outclass Monroe in every single way

    WARNING - Ultra King shock absorbers = DANGER!

    on the X series the shock/damper is not a stress member so if it fails it's OK, you will know but it won't do anything bad on the E series the shock/damper IS A STRESS MEMBER and if they fail depending on your speed you're fucked but I like the process of natural selection
