    XD Headlight Glass

    I got my xf reflectors done at the place in Melbourne about 5 years ago. Someone on this forum told me the company that does them. I remember a fella telling me that WB holden headlight reflectors are very similar to xd or xe. Not that they’d be easy to come by these days either.

    Ford 300ci Inline 6

    That’s really cool Gary. Thanks for sharing the pic and the story that goes with it [emoji1305]

    Xd aircon

    I purchased an xd fairmont years ago that had the York compressor and R12 gas in it. I’ve never had a/c as cold as that car since. It was that good in fact that I thought it was blowing smoke out of it on one particularly humid day. I took it to the local garage after a hasty panic to remove the battery lead. The mechanic laughed and said it was moisture droplets forming as the cold air met the hot humid air in the car. We were both very impressed with how well the R12 was working [emoji1305]
  4. Fucking poor form when they rip off anyone mate, let alone a pensioner. When you don’t have a clue, go to Lew’s [emoji1304]

    EL ecu- Throttle Position Sensor Calibration for a manual.

    I’m glad you found the problem but I’m worried about the possible damage [emoji51] I wonder if it’ll perform ok with the new ecu now that it’s reading correctly and doing everything ok.

    clutch cable reinforcement

    That’s very similar to mine dean. My sedan has some chrome under the bonnet so I got it made out of stainless as I couldn’t weld stainless at the time. I made my ute one out of mild steel and painted it white [emoji1303]

    Distributor replacement question

    That cap n rotor is the same as the efi cap n rotor on my crossflow. The ignition module on the side looks like an xf unit but I could be wrong.

    I think Paul is the funnier older brother [emoji1787]
  9. Keep the updates coming mate, we’re keen to see what’s causing the issue [emoji1303]

    clutch fan locks on

    It’s a common thing for them to lock up. They fail to free spin and really roar which only robs power and wastes fuel. The fan hub should undo with a 32mm spanner and it’s left hand thread. The hub removes from the fan with 4 bolts and you just put a new hub inside of the fan. I’m not sure how hard the fan hub is to buy these days but I think CHESTNUTXE might have one that he was willing to give away.

    crossflow roller rockers

    Don’t feel bad mate, wasn’t your fault [emoji1303]

    crossflow roller rockers

    Ha ha, I wasn’t sure if it was you or Campo that I got it off. I think if the welder has too many amps going into the weld it is more likely to make the weld pull the surrounding material out of shape. Good luck, hopefully this time it works out nicely for you[emoji1303]

    crossflow roller rockers

    Just be careful modifying the rocker cover. I bought a modified one and it had warped out of shape when it was welded. Someone had cut out the lower section and welded in a flat piece on so it went straight across. The heat from the welding had pulled the front of the cover upwards and the rear slightly upwards also.

    LPG Tuners Victoria

    Thanks for the input lads, after talking to a few people about my consumption figures and everything else it does I will probably leave it as it is for now. I might take it away for a fishing weekend soon and see how consumption improves with highway travel. I’ve got new plugs and leads to put on it but can’t really justify adding MSD to it as I’ve heard it can get expensive.

    LPG Tuners Victoria

    Yeah I think a fella told me that a 2 wire dizzy would be better, just less that goes on with them but I don’t know enough about both to decide to change it out or not.
