  1. I have xy 351c/ toploader/9” with 3.20 diff gears have shifting gears issues ,all gear changes are clunky and 2nd to 3rd is a lot worst I have replaced shifter with a new one from ford muscle parts ( $795 they saw me coming ) anyway even with new shifter the gear changes suck have played with linkages and adjusted to no prevail and hoping someone out there can answer the following . Q1. How do I determine the toploader needs rebuild or synchros are the problem rather then shifter. Q2. Was told toploader was close ratio is there a way to confirm this as 1st gear is very short even with 3.20 diff gears and would like too do a bigger skid before changing gears Q3.how much to rebuild a toploader and is it possible to chance 1st 2nd gear ratios during rebuild or do I need a normal toploader to achieve this

    Xw heater box core issue

    Hi dean ended up working it out had to stretch the heater box walls to release door hinge pin .
  6. Have pulled heater box out can’t find anything online that’s looks anywhere close to what I have pulled out ,most Xw-xy heater boxes online are a complete big square box mine is more off a cylinder funnel box with a short hose connecting to a letter box looking unit with a 45’ angle at one end . The heater core outlet pipe coming out through firewall has broken off and cannot find a way to remove core due to flap door hinge there doesn’t seem any way off removing flap door hinge rod with out destroying it so I can’t remove core to re core it any advice would be great. Maybe a radiator specialist have a way around this

Newbie needs advice have recently bought a xy Falcon with dodgy brake booster had more more trouble than the early settlers getting enough clearance to get master cylinder off past the shock tower to get booster off and scratching shock tower in process. Have big concerns how I will squeeze it back Is this a normal issue with xy
