    I'm not sure but if you take a look at the 2019 all ford day thread in the Vic events section of the forum you should find that information, or if not you can ask in there

    EB 1 KENOBI ? OR 2

    Good news and bad news chestnut, good news is I know exactly what that part is, bad news I can't for the life of me seem to remember at the moment. It'll come to me eventually

    How'd you end up getting it off, find a bigger hammer somewhere did you?

    EB 1 KENOBI ? OR 2

    Have you tried heating it up then hitting it with a bit of freeze and release? Once you get it off do yourself a favour and toss it in the bin then grab some thermo fans and a Davies Craig relay kit for them. I've got one for mine and it works perfectly you just insert the probe in the radiator hose hook power up to the battery then plug it into the fans, usually come with a dial to adjust temperature range aswell

    Whatever you end up getting make sure it flows more than you'll ever need as every single one I've ever had wasn't up to scratch when it came to flow and pressure for sustained use. Buy the best and you'll only have to buy once

    I think they're different threads but not sure, you'll want to take the alternator off and clean it up if it's been leaking power steering fluid on it

    Welcome mate, sounds like a good project so be sure to start a build thread with plenty of pictures when you get started.

    Have you checked the inside of the carby? Could it be something as simple as a bit of loose shit floating around in there?

    Grinds My Gears

    What really grinds my gears is pricks who assemble an engine using a metric shit tonne of silastic, just been cleaning up a crossflow and some cock has put a lot of silastic on both sides of the fuel pump gasket and by the looks of it has done the same to the tappet cover, even the bolt heads are covered in it.

    XH XR6 - starting problems

    I don't think the problem your having is caused by the smartlock as it sounds like the gas system wiring might be a bit dodgy, I'm not positive but I think ford kill switches turn power to the injectors off so if that's the case it should still crank, once again not positive just a thought. Also if it happened the way you described and is losing power to the switch I'd be betting it's an earth wire that's not grounded properly, probably been knocked lose from all the hits to the dash

    Xb Wagon Project

    Maybe someone has replaced the lids with ones from the overflow bottles or possibly Ford couldn't be arsed to take the lids off the conveyor belt before the holes were punched in them?

    New headunit

    They come with good printed instructions that will get you through it but if not there's a good chance someone has a video on YouTube of the particular model you purchase, they've got some reviews that are usually worth a look aswell. They're usually just a Phillips head or torx head screw.
