  6. the problem with wedges is that it will cause misalignment and shearing action on the bolts used to hold the ball joint on. Not really ideal, I cut the mount out of my upper arm and weld it in a new one. also putting a wedge in will increase the angle of the upper arm and depending on how low you want to put your car you will end up with your upper arm binding against the tower. From here you can machine the back of upper arms get more clearance. if you are going to wedge make sure you try to do it so the top and the bottom of the bolts are bolting on a square surface, you may achieve this by wedging the underside of the top and bottom of the bolt by equal and opposite angles, and it should be fine. make sure you use high tensile 8.8 or 10 grade bolts. The better option is to purchase upper arms that are already modified with angles to correct ball joint binding these exist and are cheaper now than they were when I had to make my own arms.

    Timing chain rattle at low rpm

    Loose bolts on the flexplate.........?? Sounds very similar. Goes away at speed as the torque increase. Rattles like a bitch at idle.

    Single Rail Oil Change Advice

    i had to google what they have even(been well over 10yrs since i've had one) i remember having to file the rounded off nut to a smaller size to get a different socket on one once looking at it in the pics below.. if you got despeate(saw a video recently where someone said make sure you can undo the filler, before draining the oil... good tip) but it looks like you could fill it from the speedo drive if need be.. but you'd need to make sure you got the correct amount of oil in.

    Single Rail Oil Change Advice

    If you have access to a welder, you can weld on a large nut and undo it with that. Or try and reverse a 1/2" drive extension bar, pushing the female end over the square on the plug and undo with a spanner on the square end. One of those old school ratchets with the push-pull square drive in the middle might work if you remove the 1/2" drive part. A double hex socket might tap on if you have a size that fits snugly A Stillsons wrench might get it but probably mangle it too Thread should be 1/2" NPT ( 3/4"-14 tapered) or possibly BSPT, best to double check with the drain plug (same plug size I believe) as there is 1 tpi difference in the two.

  19. Hi all! I’m just trying to change the oil in my single rail gearbox. It appears that the fellow who owned the car before my has partially rounded off the fill but. Can someone please confirm: - the proper size of the filler nut - any tips for removal Cheers Steve Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    CLEVELAND AIR CLEANERS

    next is my usa 400 air cleaner ,the base is similar to our xa xb xc but the lid is sunk around the centre bolt which is great for my xf bonnet clearance about 1cm deeper than the one i used when getting my modplate which was xd lid,it also did not fit as snug as the matching 400 lid.

    CLEVELAND AIR CLEANERS

    New Motor for Rods Mad Maxy Ute

    The original motor out of the ute has the M10 and the one I am putting in now has the 7/16. I've only got two of the 7/16 bolts, I'll have to run into town and get some new ones. Back into a particularly shitty roster run at work, so only going to get a day here and there to get it together and back into the ute. Hopefully aim to get it in on the 18th!

    3.3 running issues

    I’ve got plenty of fuel Down the carbie. Even thrown heaps of start ya barastard down the carbie as the cars cranking. The solenoid does sound like it’s working as I take that wire on and off. also no fuel leaks I’ve checked for that to

    3.3 running issues

    fuel cut solenoid in this pic with the red wire on it(higher red wire, lower one won't be on XE carby) just make sure it's connected, they rarely fail. could check the carby is squirting fuel, might have broken off a crusty 30yr old fuel hose near the power steering hose and it's sucking air instead of fuel also

    3.3 running issues

    i still think you should check the carby again for the fuel cut solenoid. i'm fairly sure it can run above idle but they dont idle if the fuel cut solenoid wire is off(and may not start without throttle open)
