    221 swap from BW35 to c4

    Yes was thinking a B&m Shifter style cable will work, think I have some random leftover brackets from a shifter I had years ago, time rummage thru some boxes Now I'm using the BW35, tailshaft might now be a problem, I remember years ago about a uni with the different size cups to suit early Falcon tailshaft to the 8" diff... possibly ruj-2039 been googling and sizes seem right ?....

    221 swap from BW35 to c4

    Ok thanks This is what I thought Might just use the BW35 auto trans instead, now need to fan up something to hook up the column shift to the BW35 (it's in a LHD 64 US Falcon)....should be fun Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk
  6. G'day, just wondering what auto flex plate I use if converting a 221 6 cylinder to C4 auto. I have the C4 auto but it came without flex plate, sandwich plate and torque converter. I'll get a new TC when I get the auto reco'd I guess but just want to source whatever I can beforehand. Also any recommendations for place to rebuild the C4 in melb eastern suburbs ? Thanks in advance Warren Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk
  7. Yes I have googled it also, most if the odd codes I think are fleet/ special order Pretty sure you can't get verification letters at the moment, some corporate bs going on about the records and who are the custodians.... Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk
  8. Anyone know what paint code Z186 would be ? That's what's on my utes ID tag. Ute is currently AU blueprint and will stay that way but nice to know more about the car originally Pretty sure Z was white but the 186 part could that mean different roof colour or just different shade ? This ute is a journey of discovery Thanks warren Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk

    Clevo into XE heater hose route

    Thanks for responding So the heater is from XE dated 84 on the wiring tag, and the pipes come up too on firewall. On the back of intake it's just a two port metal vacuum tree one to booster the other to C10 trans, what does the factory xe V8 have ? I thought they were a white plastic with 3/4 ports ? Yes correct I have a black, green and orange plastic lines coming into the engine bay all unhooked. Have put the green to heater tap, On factory V8 XE where would the black (main supply of vac) vacuum connect ? Once I get that hooked up I can trouble shoot the switching, which could be an XG controls to XE vacuum port problem The orange has what looks to be a round valve ( assume it's a one way valve ?) The engine ported vacuum switches have been removed, but if they are for the carb I won't worry about them for now I found the diagrams for 6 cylinder xd/xe Thanks warren Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk

    it looks best at the ride height in the last pic, do you have a write up on how you have the airbags in the car ? what you used etc ?

    Clevo into XE heater hose route

    thanks for the replies, the is XE previous 6 cylinder now with clevo and has XG dash and i assume heater. (also has xg front clip) the previous owner or mechanic workshop has drilled and tapped the manifold above the #8 cylinder and pulled heater tap vacuum from there...wtf !...will be disconnecting that, now to rework the vacuum lines With the XG heater box/control, the hot/cold dial on the dash moves a lever behind the glove box, so is that just a blend door ? to mix hot and cold air to get desired temp inside cabin ? if so i assume this also controls the vacuum to the actual heater tap, i have a green skinny vac line and i think orange coming from the firewall into engine bay, both disconnected at this point. the other thing it apepars they have disabled the ability to stiwtch from screen, to face to feet, again i assume this is vacuum conttrolled The clevo appears to be an earlier blue block and have most of the original vacuum tree missing (prob why the drilled the manifold).
