    Crossflow Hydrolocking in fuel

    Firewall end of the fuel rail. Take the vacuum line off and see if it wet with fuel or smells bad of fuel. I had one leak through the vacuum line of the fuel reg once on a xflow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Loss of power over 1500 rpm for lpg, but not unleaded

    Check all earths. Probably forgot to reconnect or loose. Earths play havoc on gas systems particularly relays to operate correctly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Motor for Rods Mad Maxy Ute

    Take the sump off and use a long 10mm socket over the tube and tap it out gently. That’s what I have done in the past for real stubborn ones so I didn’t bend and break them. Not like the early days that you could whip down to the local wreckers for one anymore Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Motor for Rods Mad Maxy Ute

    Wow! I have been guilty of using old ones before in engines for quick turn around and never had a issue. Maybe I been lucky. I always check that the cap is sitting correctly before torque down and tap cap and tap crank back and forth to seat though. As said maybe I am lucky them times. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Take one of the bolts in they will match up correct bolt. What happen though? Over tension? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tab faces to back of motor/ towards gearbox. When you put it have one end sticking up out of block 1/4 of inch and the other side sticking 1/4 in the main cap. Hope makes sense. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You can use a 2 piece seal from a Windsor 302 motor to replace the rope seal. Can’t recall part number but do a google search should come up with it. Search the old xfalcon site will have it. Just have to grind down the pin in the rear mains cap to do it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yep seen these start cracking all the place and do have quite amount of flex later models. Torque and weight and underrated suspension is a great mix. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Up to you but I be going over all the spot welds and even welding up and plating engine cross member before putting such large engine in a xf ute. Late model xf are not built the same as a xd or early xe in steel quality. Even xg were ordinary. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Extra note lapping valves is great but not if the guides or seat are stuffed. I sent a head recently for look over which I picked up for nothing that looked great that had a reco from gem reconditioners (think that’s the place)sometime with low kms. Intake valves were okay just need little work on seats and angle but the exhaust valve stems had a mix of worn valve stems and seats. A typical once over close to spec and slapped together reconditioned and sold to the public.Ask them to do it right for me after check Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If your getting machine shop to skim the heads get them go over valves and check if they in spec. Do it right the first time it’s not like these engines are sitting in every wrecking yard in australia. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    LPG horsepower gaining mods

    The usual exhaust and intake will help even diff ratio swap. But more serious stuff your heading into ecu tunes, camshafts etc. This all depend on the gas system factory egas or aftermarket impco vapour on how far you can go. There was a FG ecopli xr6 fitted with a turbo year ago Done that was pushing good numbers. So there are places that are turbocharging lpg cars. It’s like anything is possible just depends how deep your pockets are. Best to talk to them. Sad too Ford engineers had a factory xr6 ecopli turbo going through its final tests ready for its debut when Ford USA pulled the plug on local manufacture and ended it there.
