    Au falcon sohc starting issues help needed

    Thanks for all the advice guys. I tried everything and seems like it could be ignition related, or This is only a guess a bad lifter (lifters) causing a the little misfire. I did pull the plugs to see if there was a difference between them, they all seemed fine. I think I’ll take it to my mechanic now, it’s not worth my time and effort to try a chase this problem.

    Au falcon sohc starting issues help needed

    Thanks Gerg for the reply, I will check the fuel pressure reg/ vacuum line thing tomorrow, it can not hurt to try. yes it does it when it’s on gas and it’s worse when it’s on gas! What do you mean when a pick up is going dud? it also sounds like there is a lifter rattle/tick? could a backfire have collapsed a lifter causing valves to not open and close properly? I have never worked on a sohc engine or pulled one apart so it’s all new to me. Thanks
  4. Hey guys, I’m have a few problems with my ford falcon au sohc. When I start the car on gas or petrol, it runs for one second then stalls. It sounds like it completely just cuts out! Then I’ll go to start it again (on gas) some times it will fire straight up as if nothing is wrong. Some times it will start run for one second, then the rpm will drop almost making the car stall, but it catches itself from stalling and continues running. Other times it will cough and pop out of the air box and struggles to start on gas. It also has a rough idle and the exhaust fumes smell stronger than normal. I have replaced the plugs, leads, coils and intake manifold gasket. All 40,000kms ago. I’m hoping some one has experienced a similar problem and knows how to fix this. Or if you have any suggestions for me to try would be great. Thanks scott

    EFI Xflow with EL ecu

    Hey mate, I can not help you myself but, there is a fella on face book bill hooton ( I think that’s his name?) he runs the every thing barra page! He seems to be the wizard when it comes to ford electrical’s and conversions, weather it be barra or sohc possibly CROSSFLOW. Send him a message and see what he replys.

    Cleveland HEADERS - anyone used these?

    I have the proflow similar version of these, they are $150 or so more expensive. They seem quality built but the pipe wall seems thin (don’t know if that’s normal for stainless headers) and as above I think they will crack but not sure on the time frame. Have you thought about mild steel headers with polished ceramic coating? I think that’s what I would if I had my time again.

  12. Gee thanks Gerg, I owe you a beer lol. I was trying to start the thing with The coil earthed from the battery and it was not producing spark and the coil was warming up rapidly, exactly what you said above. I had me puzzled, I was like there is only a few wires why isn’t it throwing spark. I’ll give it another go tomorrow.
  13. Hey guys, does any one know the correct wiring to get a 250 crossflow running on a engine stand? Is it . thick cable from starter to + battery . Cable from starter to + battery to turn it over . Cable from + battery to + coil . + cable from dizzy to + coil . thick cable from - battery to earth on engine . Cable from - battery to - coil . - cable from dizzy to - coil does any one know if this is correct? Also is there a resister in there some where? the engine is out of a xd with a alloy head and electronic distributer.
  14. Mother fu$ker that’s a good one. i look forward to seeing how this goes. Are you going to do the roller bearing modification? I have never seen this done before.
