    FORD XF EFI 250 crossflow - Low oil pressure

    How low is your idle? Try around 800-850. Might just not be spinning up enough, or air trapped. Did you prime the pump up before start up? That's where I would start, you got pressure it's just wandering Sent from my motorola edge 20 pro using Tapatalk

    351 2V CLOSED CHAMBER BUILD

    Gerg is right, Vizard is a head working legend. When you get right into his head work you realize HOW smart he is. He was into 2L pinto motors in the 70's. It's not all about just grinding stuff out, any dill with a die grinder can go that... And muff it up. It's about the approach angle of air and velocity at the back of the valve. Sometimes metal or resin is added to the port to change the approach angle of the air. Then you want to go further its valve relocation. That's how it's done properly. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    Ok cool, so about 110hp, same as a stock Pinto. I had a MK1 with stock brakes and 200hp pinto. The stock brakes with better pads are more than up to the job. Compression braking with the motor into corners will help with saving the brakes. Wanna race after were done???? Hehehe Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    What's a double horsepower 1600 put out? My kit car runs standard MK3 Cortina brakes, solid discs and has an LSD. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk
  8. No probs mate. Just check the cable, make sure its mounted properly. And check the bracket for the clutch cable near the box is round the right way or compare bracket to old one difference in brackets could also be something to look at. Best of luck. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk
  9. Hey mate, at the firewall there is a nut for adjusting the cable. Loosen for lower pedal, tighten for higher pedal, can do it by fingers. 5 minute fix.Just check where the cable goes onto the arm of the clutch, that that's all seated properly first and it's all good where it joins the pedal arm... Just to be sure, to be sure, to be sure...... Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Did the machine shop make a mistake?

    I:d have a quick word with the machine shop mate. Probably bearing suits another purpose with 2 oil galley holes. No biggy, but I'd check with them first. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Would they be the bolts for the centre cap or front? Just check the castings in the bolt holes of big end caps. ARP new bolts would be cheap insurance on the big ends and mains. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    XG 1993 4.0 auto Ute NO SPARK

    Ok, its the plug to the back of the coil mate, its the same as an injector plug, clips on , but if the clip that locks it in has come off it can slide off. Check that mate, probably it , the clips fly off sometimes if the wiring is pulled. It's on same bit of harness as starter wiring. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    XG 1993 4.0 auto Ute NO SPARK

    No probs mate. Others wires to check are connected.... Pink wire that runs across top of throttle body and there's a wire that earths to the block in front of the dizzy. Best of luck, I'm finished busting my arse for the day, so just quote me when you reply, and I shall appear as if by magic.. . Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    XG 1993 4.0 auto Ute NO SPARK

    Never fear.... Outback is here! . Ok mate, get under the ute. The loom that goes to the starter also has the wiring for the coil, one connector goes to a radio suppressor on the coil, the other goes to the starter motor. That's the best place to get to the wiring. Probably as you say, just knocked something off. Let me know how you go. Sorry I was busy ripping out a garden bed and massive bush to get my JBA round the back. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk
