    Gday

    As the name suggests I have recently purchased a v8 Splash Ute With 200ks on the clock. Ute is in remarkable condition for it's age, and also has a full log book service history up too date.( full Ford dealership servicing)bought it off the Original owner 65 yr lady,who only drives it twice a month. to market and back. The plan with Ute is too keep it totally original and over the next few years to rebuild it and bring it up to show room condition. Apologies for no pics as it's currently in transit from Country Adelaide to Melb. I have been looking for a rare Ute in good cond for a few years now and like everyone here I like fix and tinker with things, so I guess I'm in the right place. Cheers Splash

    it will be low kms, date code correct though. if i'm still around in 50yrs i'll be 95.. driving will be the least of My concern. think of the changes in the last 20yrs.. then think forward what could be possible in the next 20yrs.. hopefully one of the changes will be to go back in time.. i'll go back to 1985 i reckon.

    My brothers S pack was a series 1, i was amazed how well that car took a beating.. he used to call it the red rocket(until southpark made an episode with that in it)

    i don't like those spill trays, but My XF wagon had an ugly fuel stain under it because it didn't have one. doing well with the structured car time. keep that up for as long as possible and you'll be miles ahead in the project game

    i prefer lows because the car still drives fine (not much bump steer, and has suspension travel still)

    Cast or 4340 408 stroker crank

    Cast cranks are much tougher than people will give them credit for. A stock Clevo 4MA will spin to 7500 no probs if everything's balanced and prepped right. If you can get hold of a neutral balance one, even better. If it's just a weekend cruiser, that might not even be an issue. Being a stroker, it will be all about the mid-range torque, not the top end, so even less reason to go steel. Steel cranks are really only for serious, sustained rpm. Total overkill for what you're building. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk

    Even though I was working long hours each day this week, getting home at around 7-730pm, the routine was to eat dinner, then straight into the garage for an hour to get some more done on the car. this week i spent each night fitting new exterior door handles... The workshop supervisor wasnt much help though today was the last day I had before All Ford Day, where id have my mates available to help me get the stuff done that I wouldnt be able to do on my own. started with the fuel spill tray... this is the only one.. this is the new one... Then the rear seat. since the accident, the LH latch for the seat back wouldnt lock in anymore, so tonight after fitting the seat back, i tried adjusting the latch, but no good. turns out the catch on the car must have gotten bent from the impact of the accident, so gave it a few whacks with a steel mallet, and it came good, in fact its a tighter fit than it ever was. the seat used to rattle a bit...not anymore and finished off the night with the visor. so all the hard shit is done. whats left to do? - passenger seat - all the interior plastics - badges - rear bumper - exterior door bash strips - centre console - wiper arms - plenum cover (paint and fit) - number plate garnish (paint and fit) - rear quarter glass trims need the black section painted ( ) so i still have a bit to do, but its not unachievable

    The BTR/DSI/ION 4spd Auto transmissions are most definitely NOT sealed. Of course you can check. The filler plug, is a 16mm nut on the right hand side of the transmission towards the back. Make sure you only use a six sided socket, (not a 12 sided) or you'll likely round off the plug hex. The fluid should be a clean cherry red colour. If it's a black/red, or brown colour, then it needs a service. Only use TQ95 transmission fluid in BTR's.

    The T56 has been going great, it idles along at 100kph at roughly 1500rpm no worries at all now. It changes so quickly too I gave it a good go and went through all 4 gears and got to a rediculas speed very quickly..... my passengers had the time of their life haha That big block power is killer It's curently getting a new exhaust hence why the sudden idea of a 4 link. I had to modify the tailshaft loop and move it further back, see in the pic

    Here we go again .

    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

    That 60ft is terrible. For every 1/10 you can save there will save 2/10ths (roughly) of your et. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I'm guessing engine hp it's a really easy way to find out if people bullshit there power figures so if you put Slydog's ute into it at 3500lb and 11.5@120mph it shows that it's a no bullshit performer
