    Took the old mole down to the city today to get the tail pipes modified and some tips fitted. Looking at the worst from underneath today I realised how friggen rough the last guy made it. I suppose I can't complain to much cause it was fairly cheap Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Having an understanding partner is the key. Without that, you're forced to choose one or the other. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk

    Never mind about underneath, if you make it too nice, you'll never drive it Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk

    Yep, bolts are in the engine bay. Comes out in one piece from under the dash. Bit of a pain in the ass, but, do-able if you have time and tools. Best part is, once it's done, will last another 30 years. Look up pictures on Google images for XB heater box, or a second hand one on Fleabay. You will be able to see all the studs/location of bolts etc. Peter Anderson on Utube has a ggod video on his XW restoration, think he might have done one on the XC as well, but, not as detailed. Can't remember.. Have a look around 20 minute mark.

    You swanhill guys are the best btw , so organised . When I came up for the test and tune I couldn't get any more than 4psi off the launch , I made a new turbo manifold and played with the tune a bit before dc and it got better , I could leave with 10psi . The cars actually pulled apart now , got some changes happening .. decent boost controller , new engine with higher comp .. I'm going to get the stall reset first and see how it goes , then maybe converter dump . All failing I'll put a trans brake in it . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Today was a productive day! Stripped more of the engine bay out, airconditioning,power steering and cleaned as much of the wiring up. Nearly ready for paint and as soon as it goes there the fun begins on the motor as I’ll have the space in my single garage to lay everything on a clean work bench... you gotta day the xfs are like 4wd without the engines in them hopefully by next week I’ll have the list of parts I need for the rebuild and off I go to order them in one hit!

    Longreach tail gate decal ?

    I recon i looked around for these decals for ages and couldnt find them. Steves on the money, probably easier to get some one to make up some repro ones.

    Get one made up. Plenty of decal shops out there now that can do it quick smart. Have you got a pic of what you want? If so, take it with you and show them and presto, all done.

    Vz no go after tranny flush

    Well the the wags is just like its number plate ALL 000 Circa 1980 green and white (its the cooks car and thats her to T) all or nothing. It didnt like being left all alone idle for a week. It was just flooded . It drained the battery trying to get it to fire. So i pulled it of the shed put a set of jumper leads on it and it went . Thats a win for the good guys.

    Had no luck with the heater core its definitely leaking from the fin area. Pull it out when I have the time. Looped the heater hoses so I can run the engine. Also the heater tap has started leaking......can I scream now? On the plus side the engine is running really well with the carb rebuild and cleaned up. Photo of the crap in the radiator filter after running the engine for 20 minutes. I didn't want to spend the money on the filter but glad I did . I ve ordered kits for the calipers floods holding up the mail. Started cleaning up the brake calipers today. Chemically cleaned these parts before finishing with a wire brush.

    Unless your IR and confident of even cylinder flow - relying just on the afr gauge and trying to apply modern 'target' mixtures to these engines will leave you chasing your tail. Simple fact is - without IR and confirmed even cylinder fill flow - these engines love a richer idle mixture than what th book and the internet says. Well in my experience anyway.

    Seems pretty simple to me. The engine will always tell you what it needs. You just have to be smart enough to listen. So let's listen to this engine. It conks out on decel and idle coming up to the the lights. Stab it and it comes to life. Increase idle speed (pull it onto the main circuit no doubt) and it runs. Both those things add fuel to the engine So the engine wants more idle mixture. Gee that's hard on a carb with a four corner idle circuit. Give your engine what IT'S asking for. Not what some internet guru says it needs. LISTEN to YOUR engine and it needs. It's that simple, well it is to me.

    All good, it’s for a slight lope to it; doesn’t really have that rough sound to it, entry level chop if we can call it that hahaha. Considering what others are saying regarding the limits on the stock ecu, I don’t think you’ll be getting too much lope either on idle unfortunately... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yeah, Unfortunately some distractions in life are unavoidable. I guess the main thing is to manage them and always try to take some time out for yourself, no matter how small. I think it's the only way you can keep doing the things you need to. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Transbrake or even a convertor bypass hooked to a 2 step so it is consistant.

    I was the starter at Swan Hill Dragway for both days of Drag Challange, was nice to watch all of the ozfalcon/ford forums cars through the week, saw you where working out staging the car to get more boost off the line then when I saw it last at test n tune in swan hill. Was definetly busy days would be a steady stream of cars till around 2pm then would start to ease off to the 3pm cut off. Transbrake on the shopping list?
