    Crossy build- am I on the right track

    Brilliant I did take the top cover off but it’s relatively easy to line it all up again and bolt it down. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The shift spool being the ‘round thing’ around the shifter shaft and the guide being the slot on the top cover. Using words I can understand ([emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]) you have to get the round thing on the shifter shaft to sit in the guide on the top cover yes? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oh totally Now Gurus, I need some help. The shifter seal on the Single Rail is one of the leaks. But how the hell do I change it? I can see the join on the shifter shaft, do I actually split this join to change the seal? How do I do that? Any help would be much appreciated. Any tips on the rear Flexi seal likewise!

    So digging further in, slowly because work is super busy. I thought there was supposed to be a rubber mount on the gearbox Cross member, all I have is bits! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    XF SPack Dash Cluster

    Hey guys! Well I have my Dash Cluster out at the moment to repair the Odo gears. Also have the gearbox out too. My question is, the Speedo wasn’t working when I pulled it out. Will replacing the ODO gears fix this or should I throw in a new speedo sensor into the gearbox while it’s out too? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks mate. Yes, sorry Manual Transmission, 4 speed single rail. It’s an EFI as well. So it should have a neutral switch and a reverse switch? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey guys. Today I pulled the Transmission out. Mainly because the Speedo didn’t work (have ordered a new sensor) but there’s a definate leak from the transmission too so don’t want to have a nice engine and a leaking trans! So findings. There’s definately a leaking rear seal (new on on the way) and the gearbox rubber mount was literally in 100 pieces (not a word of a lie) so new one of them on the way. My question is, should there be a switch or a sensor here (refer pic). I seem to have an extra set of wires to clip to something but can’t seem to see what. The only thing I can think of is a switch or sensor is missing here? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Update on XF Build. Whilst waiting for the block and head to be machined, I’ve been fixing some other issues on the XF. Have pulled the Dashboard out and have found a worn ODO gear in the cluster so have ordered some more. Have also been tidying up the paint work (a bit, it’s still dodgy as). Still have an issue with the Speedo and not sure if what I have done will have any effect. There’s a leak in the rear seal on the gearbox so have been considering pulling that out as well (and I have heard it’s easier to put the engine in with the box attached) to fix the rear seal and the speedo gear!

    XF Rear End

    I’m more thinking looks wise. And yes, the seats are HEAVY aren’t they! I have replaced them with Recaro’s! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    XF Rear End

    Hey all! I’m looking at creating a XF Hill Climb or track day car. What do XF Sedans look like without their rear bumper? Cool or dud? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oh, forgot to mention. My youngest and I went to the local racetrack for a bit of a look. There was a turbo RX7 on track and it was shooting 4 foot flames out of the exhaust. Anyway, my youngest loved it! So the XF has sidepipes and I have worked out how to program the ECU to shoot flame, just because he likes it! Funniest thing is, one of my day jobs at the moment is consulting for the Climate Change Office on Electric Vehicle transition for local council. Hypocrisy to the max!

    Hey mate, thanks for chasing me up. Have been pretty busy on the XF (when I get time anyway). Engines out and off to the rebuilders (only for the machining). The plan has altered slightly: Zero decked block Ported head Crow 14770 Cam Cylinders need to be bored out, so will be 40thou oversize as that’s what’s recommended Balance job on the bottom end Light weight flywheel Have gone with the MS3x ECU with the datalogging function, will just be a bit of fun! Have ordered some wiring stuff (the engine bay is a mess), new engine mounts and twin 12” thermos and a Davies Craig Thermo switch. Spent an afternoon cleaning the engine bay and am cleaning up and painting the extractors. So all in all, it’s progressing! Should come in around $3k for everything and should put out some (decent) figures! Thanks for the input! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey Guys Well I have the engine out and ready to build a mild EFI crossflow for a bit of a fun/track car. I’d love some advice on the plan to tweak it before I pull the trigger, what I’m thinking is: - Port and Polish on Head - Zero deck the block - Strip and rebuild, will be around 40thou oversized I reckon Piston wise - Crow 14892 Mild Hydraulic Cam - Stronger Valve Springs - Megasquirt ECU to control both fuel and spark What do we reckon? Will make some good HP? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
