    Thanks deankdx, I am also in the process of making this rear main seal install tool. The drawing is from the AUII factory manual. cheers Bill

    Hello all, I have not posted much recently as my spare time has been taken up getting the ute engine up to scratch with valuable info from members here. Pictures are worth a thousand words... cheers Bill

    Ford Falcon AU BA Water pump TSB 71R O ring

    Hello Dave, I have one on AU1 BEM door lock update, BA Power Steering Shudder TSB 98R/04, BA & BF Power Steering Gears Clunks, Creaks Knocks, Etc. TSB 04R/06. And one by the AAAE on AU Vs BA alternators. That's it. I just save these when I find them in case they become useful. Let me know if I can help cheers Bill
  8. Something I found out the hard way a few years ago and am posting this so Ford can sell a few more of those O rings and the ferrule ;-)

    AU 4.0 MLS OE head gasket question.

    Thanks Valvebouncer, I did get the Permaseal set thanks. As the AU only came out with the MLS head gasket I think the Ford manual would have the correct torque settings? cheers Bill

    AU 4.0 MLS OE head gasket question.

    Finally got back on to this, the head is off and everything is looking pretty good. With the MLS head gasket, it is genuine Ford 10 years old and has been stored well. Is it ok to use given the years sitting on the shelf? cheers Bill

    AU 4.0 MLS OE head gasket question.

    Thanks for your input Thom. Yes, the timing cover was leaking along with the tensioner and the oil pan. The O rings throughout are brittle and I will be replacing all these with viton. I do plan on keeping the ute for many more years so this overhaul apart from being enjoyable will keep it in good condition and hopefully the leaks to a minimum. Any experiences on the longevity of the MLS head gaskets? cheers Bill

    AU 4.0 MLS OE head gasket question.

    Hello all, I have my 4.0 VCT 6 out for an oil leak fix & general freshen up and want to replace the head gasket. I have a genuine Ford one packed in 2008 and the multi layers are not bonded together. Is this normal? I have not used this type of gasket before. Thanks for any good advice. cheers Bill
