    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
  4. 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
  5. 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

    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

    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

    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

    Yeah, fuel line on end of pick up. But a filter sock on the end will stop you sucking up crud in the tank, extra protection.The standard fuel pump will be fine mate. With the adjustable resistor, all you can do is say...half fill the tank. Tank is 68L, so 34L. Then just wire up the sender wire to your guage and see where it sits. If its close to 1/2 you may be OK. You don't need to calibrate the guage, the adjustable resistor does it, once you set it up right. On the XG tank there are two wires coming out. One is power for the fuel pump, the other is the + wire to the fuel guage/sender set up. The wire on the right is the sender one. If your wondering where earth is, its the tank bolted to the chassis. If you don't have any luck, maybe try put a wire from the sender set up screw on top to earth. And just see if the guage works if you do. So anywhere on that + wire, just put it in line and adjust as necessary. You probably want to try something less than the total resistance, so under 200ohm. 180ohm is Full tank, so say around 1/2 is 90ohm.....you just adjust the resistor as necessary to get the guage to read 1/2 tank, rest should take care of itself.

    I'll make it easy for you. I went got my Ford Workshop Manual... XG fuel tank sender. Empty- 3.5 ohm Half Full- 66 ohm+/- 1.4 Full- 176 ohm +/- 3 Measurements... Empty.... 0mm Half Full..... 78mm Full.....183mm. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk
