    What are this?

    Sounds like the pulse air injection, puts fresh air into the exhaust to make it seem as though it runs cleaner, the plastic things are valves that prevent the exhaust gases entering the air cleaner if I remember correctly.

    Hi Emily, try the tapatalk app, it's free and you should be able to attach a photo easily with it. i vaguely remember something like you are describing, but has been ages since seeing one. what's wrong with it? they probably assist in warming up the engine or other pollution gizmo. @SPArKy_Dave may have an XF in his museum with that hose or @Jewing15 is about due to update us on Her XF wagon which is a similar model and quite orignal, may be able to show a photo for us

    2V Head Refresh

    just noticed the precision sticker on yours, I got his kit from Ebay (Engine parts 24/7), blueracer springs, crane retainers (haven't looked up part no yet), SBI locks. Heads are fully rebuilt, k-line guides, new valves, crack repaired, viton seals, ect. would of ordered std lenght, he did say heads can very s bit, so yeah won't be porting now, Yes even said on invoice to check rocker clearance, he checked it with a standard rocker he had, but will keeping an eye out for cheap/2nd hand set of good roller rockers I call the build Snowball after how it has snowballed, F100 body isn't as straight as it looked previous scrape down on LHS & a quick re ring/bearing & cam, ended up being a bit more,

    What are this?

    Hey guys n gals I'm Emily , ive got an 1986 XF Fairmont with 4.1L ....What's the pipe that goes from the exhaust to the air cleaner ...its got two plastic what look like valves ....is it necessary ? ...my crappy phone won't let me upload a picture due to " low memory " ...
  6. So ….. after all the searching on-line looking for a fix for the unbelievably crap brakes that is el/xh.. and two very expensive "repairs" by a "reputable" mechanical establishment.. resulting in the same crap brakes as before.. (I had to plan ahead to be sure of enough braking distance).. I sent a mayday to my brother in law who had just set himself up in his own business in Toowoomba.. seriously my old xf van would s#!t on the xh van for braking ability, and it had totally standard brakes.. Soo... once again.. an expensive couple of visits to the car doctor.. (there was a heap of other stuff to fix as well, a new exhaust system included), and still crap.. there was a hesitation between foot on pedal and actual braking response.. and I'm like wtf.. seriously pissed off..! (I nearly rear ended a car on an off ramp when it stopped suddenly in front of me, saved by a grass verge run off area). Again sooo… I'm on the dog and bone big time pissed off whinging to my "Bro", he says "hesitation hey?" " I think I know what's wrong, bring it back to me, I think I know how to fix it'.. After all the money my misses was NOT sharing my passion for fixing the van AGAIN.. but I thought maybe he's onto something.. so I took it back to him.. Weeeell…. what a difference.. ladies and gentlemen.. we have brakes!!!!! Good brakes, that work.. FINALLY!! And what did he change ? THE BOOSTER.. as per the photo.. It's a AU series 3, 9 inch dual diaphragm METAL, not s#!t plastic.. booster. That's right folks, all that effort to fix xh brakes and the real go to fix area is the crap flexing under pressure 8 inch plastic booster. Why o why Ford..? No prizes for guessing why they changed back to a decent sized metal job, but it took them till series 3 AU to do it. (I think.. series 1 and 2 were plastic 8 inch weren't they?) Anyway, apparently the fire wall is the same or similar enough up to that seam for the series 3 booster to bolt on, but the seam itself requires a little surgery as per the pic and the install requires an Engineer Certification plate. (Forgot to take that photo). Now.. to just get rid of that damn annoying hand brake dragging noise, and fix the hand brake light and it would all be sweet.

    Crossy build- am I on the right track

    like the gemini one?

    Crossy build- am I on the right track

    Kinda looks like all the 1980's alarm wiring, I found in the 260z... what a mess that was!

    302 Cleveland hzj landcruiser conversion

    That second one looks like an actual 4V with Motorcraft carby pattern (not spreadbore Holley or Carter). The Aussie ones can either be 4 equal round hole (Holley square bore), 2 big 2 small (spreadbore) 2 oval, or 2 oval with the secondaries funnelled down (302) Sent from my CPH1903 using Tapatalk

    must be the same dude that wired My gemini, there's also a pic in there with the earth wire with 3 joins in it.. twist and tape.. on the CD player(didn't work) i wired it into My sedan, it's been perfect for 2yrs now

    Crossy build- am I on the right track

    No sorry Dean I didn’t. So progress is slowing a little due to Auto Electrical issues. Unfortunately the issues aren’t of my making, they relate to a prior owner who, well let’s just say, was maybe a little ambitious with joining wires! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2 barrel (2bbl) Clevo 4 barrel Clevo (4bbl)
  14. 650 Will be fine. Cyl head will limit hp potential not cam or carb. I understand the budget build and you can mod the head later to suit. Cam I would suggest you research US boosted engine combos and what is currently used. Been as your cube limited a modern cam idea works better here. Mine is pretty well what most call a NA profile but my grinder does the same on RB engines making over a G of hp.

    coil ohms range

    What ohms range should I be getting on my 93 XG falcon ute coil ? I have three coils here all get 01.3 - 01.5 ohms minus 0.5 multimeter resistance so 0,8 - 1.0 one was off my ea falcon which was working fine but produces no spark on my XG ??? one which looks brand new which came with the car which was part of a kit dizzy/coil rae brand from repco the other was on the car all don't produce spark well not that I can see by myself

    You can tell when you take off the air cleaner lid. 2 holes = 2 barrel. 4 holes = 4 barrel. Unless someone's done a dodgy and adapted a 4 barrel to a 2 barrel manifold or vice-versa. Sent from my CPH1903 using Tapatalk

    T5 oil (710)

    One downside to using synthetic (apart from cost) is that it finds leaks much more easily. Other than that, you can expect 3 times the service life of regular mineral oil Sent from my CPH1903 using Tapatalk

    It's "4 MA" for the crankshaft. That just means 351 nodular iron. Also don't worry about the Edelbrock performer manifold. It's just an alloy version of the standard 4 barrel Ford one. They made them in the States because over there, 2v engines only got 2 barrel manifolds and carbys, and folks liked a little upgrade to take a 4 barrel carby. Here in Oz, they made the 2v engine with a 4 barrel from 76 onwards. The only thing you need is to get the plenum machined out to get rid of the big taper on the secondary side that acts like a restrictive funnel. Sent from my CPH1903 using Tapatalk

    Hi Seth, all depends on your budget......... Double row timing chain ($150 - $300) good ignition system (ICE around a grand $$$, MSD a little dearer). Factor in cost of Full gasket set, Main bearings, cam bearings, conrod bearings, and new Standard oil pump, (do not be talked into a Hi-volume one). Not sure if the ACL pistons are still around... I chucked the part number up on another thread just last week. When you get a new cam, you must get new lifters. All adds up.

    T5 oil (710)

    DXIII, as has already been stated, Is the Tremec approved oil for WC T5 gearboxes. IMO, Don't run additives as a general rule. But i have used G70 in T5's before, with no harm done. But this was before I learnt what I now know about oils. If you want to learn some garbage, read on. Otherwise you can stop here. Experimentally i recently did research for a fully synthetic replacement for DXIII that would be suitable for the T5. To help it with Heat and pressure stress from track use (abuse?) I have since started using Pentrite ATF FS. https://www.penriteoil.com.au/products/atf-fs-full-syn#/ I purchased a 20L drum and use it (almost) wherever DXII or DXIII is specified. I have only done about 5,000km so far with the oil in my T5, and am having good results thus far. However it is way too early to say there wont be long term issues. So if you want the safe bet, go DXIII. I decided to use Penrite ATF FS as an experement in my T5 since my 2nd-3rd shift under power was blocking. I suspected it was rooted and am expecting to replace (or rebuild) the box sometime. But after replacing the DXIII oil with ATF FS, shifting in all gears has improved and the shift up to 3rd does not block me under power anymore. To expand on that, the oil i removed was stressed, having been used for a track day. So simply replacing the oil with fresh DXIII may have had the same effect. So don't go running around telling people that the ATF FS will fix shitty T5's. To expand on that, Tremec themselves do TELL us in the T5 manual, to change the oil regularly. Especially in severe use conditions. Using a fully synthetic may improve longevity of the oil when compared to DXIII. This is all just conjecture. And without spending a lot of time and money driving, switching oils and doing oil trend analysis, that is not going to change. If someone wants to sponsor me i'll go ahead and get started? No? ... Damn

    with all My crossflows, they all got the same economy on the highway or around town. 15L per 100km. all except the one i built up with worked head and gas cam.. that fucker used 20L per 100km, but was pretty quick... (for a crossflow) (although, i remember putting tyres from the "lexus falcon" that spun easily that i thought were crap.. on the XF with crossflow and it couldn't spin them lol.. goes to show what a stock 4 litre lexus V8 does different to crossflow) that worked engine owed more than $4000.. bloody hard to justify. unless you have a passion for making it the best it can be and can afford it
