    Do you need to wire in the ecu with xf wiring or it should work without?

    It was previously on gas, right? Maybe the owner didn't bother changing the oil because it stays visibly clean for a very long time? Sent from my CPH1920 using Tapatalk

    Ha ha Before I ran it I: - Filled the Oil Filter - Put a drop of oil down each cylinder - Spun the oil pump to prime it - turned it over a few times without fuel and plugs - checked oil in the top end (yes) - put it together and tried to start it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Well maybe you should of mention motor has been sitting for 1 1/2 years. So I take it you never spun up the oil pump through the dizzy hole to lube the cam and get oil pressure BEFORE you tried to run it? I'll leave you with it..... Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    It probably isn’t mate. It’s been about 18 months and, even though I haven’t run it, I’ve taken a while to get to this point. So I would suggest Warantee run out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Why aren't you just returning it to the 'professional' guys who built it? Seems silly to be pulling apart a motor that's under warranty. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Not really Bear. Not for more than a minute before doing this. I’m trying to eliminate one thing at a time. Today is the bottom end. Just pulled one of the main caps and it still has bearing grease on it! So I’m assuming it’s not a bottom end thing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Double roller chain set, too. Had some love in the past. Didn't spend too much on oil changes though. ! Or T'stat is waaay too cold.

    Has it ever started and ran...??
  11. May have some luck at your local Pirtek or Enzed hydraulics store...??
  12. Many thanks. Rang a few power steering places today and they echo your comments. Might have to suck it up and replace new XD hose i had installed before the engine went in with an XF 6 cyclinder one which i have been informed should work.
  13. The old pump is probably like the old Saginaws from the 70s, which had an imperial fitting, 5/8" springs to mind. I have no experience with these old ones, but the fitting is likely an SAE flare type, same as what goes on the steering box end. Some time around the early 80s, GM went to a 16mm thread on their pumps (which Ford used) and you'll either need to change hoses, find some kind of adaptor from metric going into the pump to SAE flare, or (possibly) swap the fitting that screws into the back of the flow control valve, also partially holding the casing to the pump body. If you can get hold of an early pump to suit an imperial hose end, this fitting *MIGHT* swap over between pumps. There are adaptors that go from 5/8”-18 to -6 AN (JIC) hydraulic type but that doesn't help you because you're after 5/8" to 16mm. Your only option might be to replace the pressure hose.

  14. Hey, hoping someone has a plan on how to marry up the old type XD Power Steering hose which works with a plastic type reservoir pump to the teardrop type without getting an XF 6 cyl hose or getting a new plastic type pump?? Don't really want to put in a new hose as it seems a punish to replace. HELP!!

    Starter is already off Thom. Whatever it is it's internal. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Help!

    I'd hedge my bets on the starter, if the drive is binding up on the flywheel it could cause the engine to lock up and winding it back and forward with the breaker bar is making it release

    Help!

    Could be stuck valves, valve-spring bind, or the cam is too big for zero deck, and now the lifters have pumped up, the valves are hitting the pistons. If you have a bore-scope, see if the piston crowns are marked/damaged. Or take the rockers off, then try turning the engine over by hand.

    Help!

    There's something seriously wrong mate. Either the cam is seized or there is something like too long pushrods etc. Don't fark with it, take it to the muppets that rebuilt it and get them to fix it. If you mess with it too much you will void your warranty. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    It’s done this since I got it back. Free up, lock up, free up etc etc Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey Steve, did you have it running properly at some stage? Or had it done this since you got it back? Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Cover whire wheeled, camshaft and timing set out. This thing definitely had love in the distant past - the camshaft is a Crane grind (230@50 / 530 lift) and all the cam bearings are mint. The head gaskets came off dead flat and looking like they're out of a packet. The more I strip stuff off this the better it gets. Figners crossed for the crank and rods. Ah yeah, I got the heads back as well. Hot tanked, acid bathed, hardened seats all round with a mild throat cut plus a valve job, new seals & mild performance springs. Nice.

    Thanks Mate. Should have added, started and plugs are out, still doesn’t turn. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Help!

    Hey guys. Still chasing a gremlin in the XF 250 Crossflow. So it’ll turn over and run for a very little while (like seconds) then lock up. At the moment I can rock it back and forth about 20mm on the Balancer with a breaker bar and that’s it. It’s not seized, but it’s definately stuck on something. Engine was professionally rebuilt, so I’m thinking it’s something I did. All I put on was the Flywheel, clutch, and pilot bearing. The rest was done by a pro. Engine is out at the moment, flywheel and clutch look ok. Mains and Conrod bearings look fine, no play in the rods or mains. For reference. Engine was professionally rebuilt with: - Aftermarket Cam - New Valve Springs and timing gear - 0 decked block - everything professionally machined and reassembled. I’m out of ideas....HELP!

    Checked the recipt, they are indeed Dynamic. Heh, at least they were cheap! The timing cover is pretty good. It's an average of about 15% humidity and bugger all rainfall out here so things don't deteriorate like they do on the coast. A quick wire-wheel and a coat of paint, she'll be good as new. - boingk

    Xg falcon loosing power

    Use some WD40 on the threads to loosen the filter up a bit, they get pretty dusty under there. Mine was being a gutless pig awhile back, ended up being blocked/dirty fuel filter. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk
