    Position of ECU Temp Sender

    As Panko said, on the side of the head. That plug in the thermostat housing was some sort of temp switch for AC on carby vehicles I think.

    Zd escape radio code

    Best bet will be to contact Ford with the VIN and prove that you own the car and they should be able to help out

    XF high beam / Indicator switch

    Was the easiest website to find it on, you can buy it at other shops. But I guarantee you'll have a much better colour if you used the base coat underneath. The rocker cover on my BarraCruiser has the blue MetalCast, without the base coat it would've just been a light blue paint with no metallic appearance

    Did you apply the MetalCast base coat first? https://www.repco.com.au/en/car-care-panel/paint/specialty-paints/dupli-color-metal-cast-anodised-base-coat-311g-mc100/p/A9302375 If not then you're only getting half the result, the DupliColor MetalCast range needs the ground coat first then the colour coat to get the proper metal/anodized finish

    XF high beam / Indicator switch

    My wagon has aluminium foil on one of the headlights [emoji23] it's been there since I got it registered. Wouldn't recommend it - beam is definitely not as good as the other side which has one of the reco reflectors I got off you in it.

    Have done this based on Dean's advice before and it worked great, still working too actually.

    accelerator cable

    X series EFI accelerator cable is a lot shorter than the carby one from memory. Definitely different.

    eBay radiators

    Can get them, crazy expensive, retail would be around the $1k mark.

    XF had the option of the skinnier radiator, but AC automatically got the wider one, same if the car was optioned with tow pack from new. You'll need different top hose if going the skinnier one, mounts need to be moved (just change the bolt location, there from factory). Shroud won't fit the skinnier rad, they only had a guard at the top.
  10. We order stuff through DBA at work all the time, it's interesting that they want a minimum purchase to make some, because normally they will make them when ordered if they have no stock. Do you have any particular part numbers, and I could see what happens if I try and get P&A?

    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    I remember my brother had a Ford Ka for a while, they basically run an injected Kent motor from I found about it. Wasn't a particularly fast car but was great on fuel [emoji23] $2k in parts is cheap [emoji23] I paid almost that just for the ZF6 to LandCruiser transfer adapter

    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

    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    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.
