  1. Welcome, nice wagon, Being an XF I would keep an eye on the temperature gauge climbing hills on the freeways in this heat. Didn't trusted the wayward temp gauge in my van bringing it back home so I bought a Supercheap handheld infrared heat gun to check on the radiator and hoses at every stop. Have a great trip.
  2. Yes, I might even go down this route later as I own several Ford Traders with the same Mazda / Perkins diesel only mine are direct injection 3.5 SL versions. Turbo charged 3.5SLT was a great little diesel. They were fitted to a few Melbourne taxis at the time.
  3. These plastic centres I painted with chrome ish paint, bought some small stainless bolt covers (trucking supply places) and painted a red centre for contrast. Would be great to find a 3D Ford badge to glue over the centre middle. XF shown.
  4. Saw these at Wangaratta swap meet today. XD and earlier XA ?? in background outside. XD with XE front Sweet Fairmont This looked complete
  5. Well thought I needed a new pull cart for swap meets and decided to build something a little different. gave it it's first run today at Bendigo. Dragged home a few good truck and XF bits with a box on the back. \
  6. Good idea, I fitted one to one of these to a truck as I was having a parasitic drain from the alternator when everything was off.
  7. Missed this, Welcome,. Nice Fairlane but my attention went straight to your dads Louisville. I'm restoring one myself. A 76' LN8000.
  8. Thanks to all, I'll check it out.
  9. I must check this out on mine as I loose power when I flash the high beam when my lights are on. Luckily I don't do much night driving. ketspano, which circuit breaker do you refer to, (under the dash) next to the blinker can ?
  10. Yes, guy reckon most over tighten the carb down, bending the base plate. Full kit was 88 bucks, rebuild 200 including fitting a good SH auto choke. That vacuum advance might be right for yours if you are not using a EST dizzy.
  11. Two more pics. Hope it helps. FYI. Had it rebuilt by Carburettor Services Burwood, Sydney and bought the kit from MLP Carburettors Reservoir, Melbourne.
  12. This thing run so much better now too. here some pics. below....rebuilt below...rebuilt installed Below....EGR side before rebuild Below.. Can't remember where I found this guide.
  13. Deankdx, I just had my 34 adm rebuilt by a place In Sydney, I took some close up pics of it while I had it off and back on the car, I'll get some pics loaded here later today. Usual suspects of bad idling, (vacuum leak, excess fuelled jet) flat spots on acceleration (accel. pump) 6 pumps to start (auto choke replace) also carb overtightening on the manifold causing vacuum leaks at the base.
  14. Yep, I did a bit of digging before buying any passenger vehicles, I run three smaller trucks (Ford Traders) and all are the same cost as the XF due to the 3 seats. The bigger trucks cost some dough mind.
