    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    Sounds like a good outcome all things considered. It's 15yrs in Tas for the WOVR as well, surprised Vic is 25. Bonus not having to pay any salvage, although I found Shannon's had very reasonable salvage costs ($500ish for my FG). What's the timeframe on it being back on the road?

    XE falcon with Barra - dash gauges

    Think XE speedos pulse at 8/sec whereas XF onwards is 10? I may be wrong about that

    That's really shit news mate. Hope you're alright. I agree with James, especially this time of year. I avoid driving my older cars a lot of the time just because I'm worried about someone else running into me

    Barras don't have a coolant temp sensor. They have cylinder head temp sensor, it's not actually in the water jacket, just the metal of the head. From what I have been able to find, most people will tap a thread into the thermostat housing and fit a sender there for the cars coolant temp sender.

    GMB water pump different thread

    Don't have any in stock to check the bolt size with I'm afraid

    GMB water pump different thread

    That's a Tru-Flow pump which is just reboxed GMB, shows bolts included. If I remember and have time at work tomorrow and if we have a xflow pump on the shelf I can check the bolt size

    New pump should've came with new bolts. The original pumps have imperial threads for the belt pulley, replacement pumps have metric thread and should include new metric bolts.

    88 XF heater tap

    It's to with AC I believe, because non AC carby cars didn't have it, and EFI didn't have it (because computer controlled all the stuff Dave mentioned)

    88 XF heater tap

    Buy a Tridon thermostat gasket, they're adhesive on one side so you can "glue" the thermostat into the housing before assembly

    How to find manufacture date of battery

    That means put on the shelf at Repco in June 2018. There will also be a stamp there that can decoded into the actual manufacture date, is 4 or 5 digits, with both letters and numbers but I'd have to actually check with Century how to decode them. We just go off the stickers normally, batteries don't sit on the shelf for anymore than 2 months max before Century take them back, recharge them and resticker them.

    How to find manufacture date of battery

    On the top of the battery is there a small square sticker with a recycle symbol and four numbers? Sticker could be purple, white, orange, green, yellow or possibly other colour.

    How to find manufacture date of battery

    Any battery made in Australia is a century battery. No other company manufactures batteries here

    How to find manufacture date of battery

    @Demmo is the battery gloss black or matte? If it's gloss it's a Century battery with Repco stickers, made in Australia. If it's matte, it's a Yuasa battery - owned and distributed by Century but made overseas.
  15. XF had return from pump, XE had return from carby. This is the XE style https://www.repco.com.au/en/parts-service/fuel-ignition-exhaust/fuel-pumps/fuelmiser-fuel-pump-external-mechanical-noglassbowl-fpm-000a/p/A7718853
