  1. This is how mine is setup on my ute. Runs well enough. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  2. Loving the bonnet! That's a glass one yeah? Bumperettes look great without that hole in the side! Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  3. FG have the sump designed like the Cortina used to, ie the pickup, dipstick etc is all towards the rear of the motor. Maybe find out how people have gotten a 4L into a Forty and start there. This is assuming you mean a 4L OHC of course. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  4. Big thanks to Jeremy for giving this a good detail today. Brought it up a lot nicer than these photos will show - sun had gone down by the time I got them. Will try and get some in the sun later to show off the shine. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  5. Haven't got the wheel off yet. Been avoiding it to be honest. Might look at it tomorrow. Got a pretty agro puller off my Dad to try, I'll just have to get some high tensile bolts to screw into the boss kit first. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  6. Long overdue shock upgrade purchased for the ute. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  7. I have a work van, I can't decide if I like it or dislike it [emoji23] Mechanically it's reliable, 210xxxkms of delivery driving and it's never had a mechanical failure. Electrics play up occasionally, and parts can be tricky to come by - even for Repco. It's an oddly comfortable vehicle too, although you sit on the seat in the car instead of in the seat in the car - if that makes sense. It's probably a common van seating position.

  8. XD and most XE seem to have that plate, but I've never seen a XF with it. @SPArKy_Dave any ideas? Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  9. XFs have that circle hole cut out near the wiper motor plug (next to the brake master cylinder). That works quite well Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  10. If you copy the individual link for each photo, and paste it here, the pictures should show up here. PCV you test by removing and giving a shake from memory, you should hear a rattle if it's working as its meant to. No rattle means it's blocked/jammed/broken. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  11. Chrome Shop gave me a price of approx $130 each if I sent them just the reflector. That was for my best condition ones - no burn marks et, just faded to dull. Price must vary on condition. I've got a LTD badge you can have if you'd like, if you can't find one local. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  12. 6 or 8 metal clips hold the glass onto the housing, and then the reflector sits in the housing held in place by the adjusters. The worst part is trying to get the metal clips on/off without damaging the glass. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  13. I quite miss the three on the tree from my ute. If the 3spd manual worked with a 2.77 diff I'd almost go back to one - revs were just too high at speed with the 3.23 though. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  14. If it's the reflectors that aren't great, XF and ZL shared the same reflector in different housings. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  15. Yeah 30 here, but no need for any club affiliation. They're also meant to be doubling the allowed days from 52 to 104 and removing motor tax off SI rego at some stage. Pricey. Mine are $600 each for full rego. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
