    XH TO EL COMPUTER

    Hi all I have a complete XH Ute that's manual. Can I swap computers over if I'd do a gearbox swap without too much hassle???

    TIMING CHAIN ISSUES

    Thanks Thom...done that but my concern is when timing the auxillary shaft with the chain. Ive done it via the links and still having issues. I'm getting all the original gear for this engine and go from there. Dave the dissy is also out of the engine that the auxillary shaft came from so I think that maybe a problem. I have a new dissy ready to go but I will swap drive gears over before I use it.

    TIMING CHAIN ISSUES

    I just purchaes a 1998 EL GLi Sapphire that had the axillary shaft replaced but thye couldnt get it going. After doing some research, upon inspection I found that it had an Hybrid/Au timing chain in it( which that had gotten from another engine when they did the axillary shaft swap) and wasnt timed properly. Timing it correctly but it still had trouble starting and would slow rev till about 2k then quickly to 5-5.5k like it should. Let idle and it would die. Wont start, winds over but wont start. Check timing again from scratch and timing marks are out. They have used the Au chain and gears, except crank gear. Would that cause any issues? I can get all the original chain and gears. I am tempted to put a new timing chain kit whilst its apart but want to know regarding the gears of the AU and the EL crank gear matching up? I'm bald already and if it wasnt a drought I probably burnt the thing by now!!

    XA-XC A-Pillar Corrosion

    hey fellas I know this is 7months old but Ive been given a XC wagon and Both A pillars are rusted. The drivers side is rusted through to the outside only but the passenger side is rusted on both sides. The inside on the passenger side is down closer to to where the dash is mounted. My question is would it be easier to replace both pillars completely, ie ease and safe or repair drivers side and replace passenger side?? Thanks in advance Stuart
