    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.
  10. 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
  11. This one should do the job - may need to swap the fittings to the one from your current pump. https://www.repco.com.au/en/parts-service/fuel-ignition-exhaust/fuel-pumps/fuelmiser-fuel-pump-external-mechanical-fpm-008/p/A7063628

    If anyone ever needs anything from Tassie they're more than welcome to try and sort it via me, I don't always have a lot of spare time but I'll do my best. And more than happy to travel statewide, only takes a day to go anywhere in Tassie and back. Going to Devonport after work tonight to buy a car, and still have to be at work tomorrow [emoji23]

    Auto to manual hump

    Nope, they're different, but you can easily use an auto one for a manual, might just have to enlarge the hole a little. I've got an auto shifter hump in my XF with a T5.

    Xf power steering conversion

    Can't fit power steer to a three speed manual unfortunately. The shift linkages will foul on the bigger power steering box. You'll have to stay manual steer or convert to a 4 or 5 speed on the floor. Ute didn't (and still doesn't) have power steer, but I did fit a ZL column to it, had to extend the length to suit the manual steer box.

    Long Term Engine Storage

    Pretty sure it's on the shelf at all Repcos. If not all, definitely the vast majority. https://www.repco.com.au/en/oils-fluids/greases-lubricants/lubricants/crc-heavy-film-soft-seal-300g/p/A7681836
