    Hello Everyone

    Welcome mate! Best way to share photos is through Photobucket or Imgur or similar to host the photos on an external site. Or if a phone user get the free Tapatalk app and use that to upload images.

    Crossflow Lifter Noise

    My ute used to hit flashing red bars whenever it was warm and the oil was half or lower on the "OK" bit of the dipstick. Motor never really sounded noisy. I did check it once with a pressure gauge and it was fine and within specs. That was when I decided the gauges on the digital cluster are very much indicators rather than super accurate.
  6. Still doing shit like engine bay wiring, fuel system and waiting on that bullet low alt bracket Dave... Will be mocking up that loop this weekend hopefully too [emoji108] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Shouldn't imagine it being too different from a Zephyr mechanically. Wheels could do with an upgrade though, even a subtle one Sent from my CPH1903 using Tapatalk

    OGUN - the clevo

    It will have to be a well-built converter to handle pushing that big lump of iron quickly... Hope he's running a decent cooler Sent from my CPH1903 using Tapatalk

    Yep, agree with all diagnoses thus far. Excessive gear loading could be from high oil pressure (stuck relief?) But that wear pattern looks like misaligned teeth. This could be from a worn dizzy bush, and/or incorrect OD on the oil pump drive spigot. This puts all of the side loading onto the dizzy bush. Well spotted on the cam lobe Ando, both of my wiped cams had lobes that looked like this that weren't the completely fucked ones, looks like they were on their way too. If not running a specifically high zinc oil, this is your problem. Penrite or Fuchs are both highly regarded on here running in our old clunkers. Sent from my CPH1903 using Tapatalk

    I had 2 EL Ghia's A sparkling burgundy 6 and a mocha foam V8. Both had cappa interiors. Wish I still had them. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    Looking great. As usual another fantastic mini resto. Heritage green is a great colour. It has come up really well. Please don't be offended by this as I understand why you did it but that seat colour change would really do my ocd no favours at all. That rear console piece is from an LTD. Are you keeping this car?

    I'm also tempted to pop a few other rod caps off to check some of the other bearings....... just to check that the filter caught that metal Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

    Not sure if the oil pump is a HV one... I'll run the part numbers later on and find out. Either way, its had a bit of metal through it. I'll check the pump in the other motor. If its in reasonable condition then I'll use it Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

    As to what causes it, numerous things, age, poor oil quality, high volume pumps. Poor meshing of the dizzy gear, worn cam end plate. Incorrect spacing of the spacer behind the cam pin. Aftermarket cam shaft that hasn't had the gear cut nicely, some leave a rough edge which needs to be filed over or it will chew everything in its path, but mainly chops the dizzy gear.

    I'd be more worried about the lobe, but yes that cam is gone, as is the timing chain set. Time for a much needed freshen up.

    what you might find is it has a high volume oil pump.. causes a lot of drag on the gears. the one i had did. not recommended to use from what i hear

    Hello Everyone

    yeah they are different to XFs in the radiator mount, so that makes a bit of a pain, and gearbox cross memeber also is in a different spot. the rest shouldn't be that hard from memory. but yeah be lots of thing converting efi engine to carby that will need sorting also.

    Hello Everyone

    Thanks - the previous owner put them on, tbh photo's don't do them justice they look fantastic in person. They're all EDABOC stickers (Clothing brand), They were put on by a mate, his uncle's mate owned the label. I took them off a couple weeks later, this is quite an old photo (5-6 years maybe slightly older?) Unfortunately it wasn't really something i kept tabs on over the last few years working through it. It was nowhere near as straightforward as i thought it would be so i wish i did keep more notes/pics etc. I've had quite a lot of help with it from a few people but It's pretty much complete now. Just some niggly bits and pieces to get it running right. I do have another project i'm looking into for the Mrs. When we get started i'll be sure to do a build thread for it.
