  1. Turns out that the rack in it is a original but l got it all done in the end a mate gave me a intermediate shaft from what ever it was an the end fitted the rack no problems so l took it off an fitted it to the ef intermediate shaft and bingo wheel straight when wheels are straight ahead which is awsome but only issue now is that it’s tight when turning the steering wheel none of that sorta spring bounce back when u rock the steering wheel like it did before l changed the rack. Could it be because the new el rack had sat for some time wrapped an covered up ?? I purged it of air and every thing but it sorta feels like bloody Manuel steering to a point when stationary to turn but not as tight even with front of the ground it’s tight an that was before l even fitted the new intermediate shaft so l could see if it leaked or not from the lines Or could l of possibly put lines on the wrong way??
  2. Ok 1st issue is my ef-l rear left door has issues opening from inside an out. Door shuts easy enough but the issue is when l open it from the out or inside l have to either shove on it from I or pull hard to open it. I’ve adjusted the striker plate an watched as l shit it an it was dead even with the door and everything but soon as it starts to engage it’s a lil snugging but then open I get the push hard yank hard to open l even tried a different striker that l ground down a lil an changed the lock mec in the door same issue even changed doors same bloody issue. What would be causing that. ?? 2 nd issue is wipers where does one get new bushes to fit the arms under the cowl as my left wiper has some serious free play. When l use them an turn off the passengers is still 1/4 in the up position an l just push it down. I’ve noticed that the bushing or what ever it’s called is pretty much fragged. Need help as lm getting ready to paint the car soon an wanna have no issues with rwc as they will pick the hell outa those two issues
  3. Well did the rack from ef to el an found that there is a difference in the racks. The difference l found with the 2 racks sitting one infront of the other is that the el an ef have different lengths in the rods that the tie rods connect to on the racks. Ef is longer so it seems to the el and when l had the ef one in my alignment was screwed up with all my el front suspension. I could have wheels straight but if l did a full lock to the right wheel would hit the radius rod Had a mate try an do the alignment an didn’t matter either way a wheel would hit the radius rod on either side when adjusted an l didn’t mess with the rods at all. Fitted the el one in wheels were spot on except for drivers being a fraction out as l knocked the nut when fitting it Just needs a minor adjustment and wheels are spot on an everything. Who would of guessed they’re different in the lengths of the rods lol. But now l need the piece that goes between the rack an the column to connect it all up an then it will be mobile again. Thing is what’s the difference with the color of the rubbers on the tops of the racks as the el is green an the ef is black.
  4. Yeah l got el rack but to get the ef one out is a bloody bitch cause I will have to take engine out so l can get at the mounting bolts The complete column is el with the shaft that connects to the rack. Hmmm might just take the el column out an fit ef seems to easier
  5. Ok l am at a massive loss an having issues like no end , as some ppl know l am rebuilding a ford ef after my el was crushed by a tree ages ago and lve converted everything from the el motor harness etc which means it’s just ef body all el stuff in it. I didn’t change the rack in the ef shell as it was a good rack. Problem is l fitted the el column as it had all the cruise controls an everything. Wheels are straight ahead but the steering wheel is 90 degree to the right an the clock spring is too. Ppl tell me el column will do that to a ef rack for some reason but didn’t say why. Then l get told l can’t fit a brand new el rack to to Ef for some reason due to bolt mounting holes being in different spots or some shit. Spoke to a steering place and they told me a el rack is same as ef so l can bolt it in no problems everyone is speaking bullshit. an my column is damaged which it is not. l can’t take the rack out unless l remove the bloody motor an trans due to sfa room to get at it on drivers side an pass the trans lines are in the way an can’t use a breaker bar as it hits the k frame when l go to use it tension bar is too bloody long an smacks into the body an l can’t use a small extension bar as l hit the starter motor an without lm hitting the k frame. so which is the issue the column is wrong an l need a ef one instead or ppl are wrong with the matter of racks being different as my workshop Manuel doesn’t mention any of these things being like that. Also where can l get ef el wiper arm bushes as passangers is fragged

    EL THERMO FAN ISSUES

    Ok just did a trick. I cut the blue wire with white trace at the ecu end turn key fans still went on .cut it at the relay hooked a wire to the relay end an to the ecu cut end on ecu Turned aircon on fans went on. Turned aircon off Turned heater on highest & lowest temp 16 with heater fan on low fans turned on turn. heater off fans off with motor running so somewhere in the harness something has happened for fans to turn on at all times even with just ignition on but not running even if wire was cut at the ecu so now that have hooked a new wire from the ecu plug out thru the window to the relay fans will now turn on with aircon on or with heater on hi or low temps turn heater off where screen says off on it no fans running do you think that was the problem wi th wire somewhere in the harness has possibly rubbed where l can’t see it ?? Sad part is l can’t just run the wire from the relay straight to the ecu on the left side as the wires for the relay run rite around past the front of the rad all the way into the drivers side then thru the damned dash to the ecu that way sol gotta pull the dash out just to run it properly an everything

    So would it be the blue with white trace wire that’s the relay coil negative on the relay an from the ecu?? Can’t see any wires from relay with any nicks exposing anything or from the ecu as all wires re fully covered It’s doing my head in big time

    So it not a neg wire but the power wire which would be what color or is it the nether that’s shorting out somewhere between the ecu an relays?? If it a neg wire couldn’t l say just splice into the low fan neg and ground a new one to the body from that ?? Sorry lil out of it as lve just taken some pain killers as l just wrecked my shoulder

    All contacts are good as l hooked up a test light to the plug on fan end there is power on those the relays all new an when l pull em out an out em in again while key is either on or engine running they click and the fans power straight away an terminals are clean on the relays an on the sockets they plug into ...l even looked at the fan relay box to see if there is a wire touching where it shouldn’t an none are.

    Yeah 4 sets of em including using the wife’s from her el fairmont. Even tried ef ones all same issue bloody on slow speed turn the aircon on engine picks up revs but not a single change in speed. Almost ready to burn the bastard to the ground

    Well now l am really screwed as l unplugged the ecu turn key on an fans on low still, went over the harness an couldn’t find any breaks or loose connections anywhere. Started it up hit aircon engine engine idle went up like usual even tho my aircon is pretty much deleted except for the aircon pump that’s been gutted so all that’s left is the housing an the pully as l couldn’t find a aircon delete one Fans didn’t change speed at all so now lm pissed because l was meant to have it ready in couple of months to take to a meet in woodend next year.

    It’s all el harness all the way thru it except from the dash will check it when it’s lite out Wonder what it would be if they still run with the ecu unplugged as 2 ecu’s can’t be faulty at the same time like that

    Ok to answer the transmission no it was never a Manuel converted from auto or video versa it’s always been a auto 2 J3 chip oh hell no wont use crap like that not even wouldn’t even use a shift kit thing for my car 3 can’t be ecu as it been changed twice an still does it an the reason why lm using a ef bcm is l scored a ef v8 fairmont donor wreck ages ago an wanted the dash for the digital climate dash airbag an all that when l was building the original car when l was going thru chemo couple of years back. That was ridden off in front yard thanks to tree coming down so l transferred all from the wreck to this car which is a Ef xr6 there is a vid somewhere on here called Thor2.0 showing the original an then this build I wanted something different to all other ef els out there all l had to do was change couple of plugs around an get the bcm an ecu to talk other than that it’s still sorta el fairmont dash with just couples of plugs different in wires lol never had a issue with it being all from the 1st build until now it’s just started to happen an lve been slowly building this over the period of about a year?? I’ve had it running heaps of times no probs till the other day when it started that’s why l changed over the ecu an bcm to spare ones l had that came from good running cars an with. Fairmont climate control soon as u switch it onto aircon fans will come on as my mrs has a el fairmont an my daughter has a ef futura that has full rally cluster that’s original in it as it’s got the futura sticker on the housing an futura factory fitted badges on the front fenders . Just don’t know why it’s doing it now of all things as it was fine last week when I had it running in my garage till l put it under the car port

    The fans come on as soon as the ignition is on n both are on at low speed , temp gauge shows cold when temp sensor is unplugged I start it gauge goes to hot fans full bore , l do the Neutral to drive once = one high Neutral to drive again = both low, Neutral to drive a third time = both high and far as l can see an hear fans stay low speed so it’s got me beat
