    Cutting the water pump on 250 crossflow

    Here is a side shot to show the extra clearance. It's about 1/2" less pump snout. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Cutting the water pump on 250 crossflow

    I modify the sexy ally proflow clevo pulleys and older xf non air con water pumps to give way more fan clearance. But for a budget option slicing the threads off is no problem. You will find that the shaft material is very hard. Take it slow or cool the shaft with compressed air as you cut it to avoid damaging the pump seal. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    5.8. 9" inch gears. It was a spool issue.

    Crossflows night of nights.

    On night 2 of the Aussies we were 12th fastest out of 96 cars, with the wrong diff gears in because we broke the shorter gears. 4 trips thru the scrutineering shed, basically after every heat. Fair to say the old crossflow upset a few big dollar efi teams. Makes it sweeter that the car passed every test.

    Crossflow powered cars first and third in the 2019 Queensland Modified Sedan Title. Mighty Clarko's Performance XE came home first, FG Falcon 2nd and Shallcross Cortina 3rd. FORD podium lock out. Yahoo. Long live the mighty crossflow.

    Yeah. Compact, pretty robust and FORD stud pattern.

    OGUN - the clevo

    It has a Mitsubishi l300 front end welded on. Cortina rack with lengthened rack ends. Ken did it all in the bush with a tape and a welder. She definitely steers way way better now.

    OGUN - the clevo

    On a positive note I got it to actually steer. Have a look at the before and after alignment figures. Many neglect this most basic of things, but every car needs to have the alignment correct for the application. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    OGUN - the clevo

    Sadly I have to admit defeat. The convertor/flexplate in the truck is the old ball c6/c10 - 11.5 bolt circle. No one has a convertor on the shelf to suit the application. I could change to the 10.5 bolt circle and get an off the shelf convertor to do the job but then the new flexplate will have to be balanced, it could cause starter issues, and I'm still not convinced that the box isn't damaged. I've since found out the current convertor is a re-use after the box had an issue and it wasn't cleaned out. I suspect that there could be crap thru the the rebuilt box, new trans cooler etc etc. The call has been made. I'm going to park it until I can confirm the gear box condition, get a suitable convertor built and re-dyno him. Too much risk in just sending it. Others would, but not me. Too much time and money at risk, for zero reward. There is another show a month later. We will aim for that.

    OGUN did hit the dyno on Saturday, but sadly it appears the convertor is junk. Was fine in the shed skid but as soon as real load was put on it, it went south. Praying we can get a convetor in time for Northern Nats on the 3rd, 4th & 5th May. The tune is close enough and with the in-car afr gauge running the same as the dyno gauge - I'm happy to run it and log everything and tune at the track. I love modified cars.......

    OGUN - the clevo

    I drove it on the road on Saturday. It has old McCreary Dirt (flat track) bias ply tyres on the back. Cool as f..k but it gets seriously squirrelly when the stall hits. Dyno is happening next week. It feels strong, the big stall should rob some numbers on the dyno but I'm keen to see what it rolls up.

    250 Crossflow build

    Yep. Just need to improve the efficiency of the head and wind up the boost. But hey, each to their own!!!!
