  1. Thanks that’s interesting to know. I will try the same and mod my XY , 3 speed bell housing . The one that’s currently running in the car. The 6cyl to toploader bell housing I also have, I won’t molest or use that unless I have to. The single gearbox should arrive in a week or two, I might try and fit it before Xmas. See how I go for spare time. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks for that info Will do when the Cortina box arrives in a few weeks. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks for that. I was hoping it might bolt straight up I might re drill what I’ve got to make it fit Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Update! And tech question - Hi all I’ve found a good Cortina Single Rail box that has the short stubby extension housing so I’m confident the gear stick position will work with my bench seat. (It won’t arrive here for about two weeks) The car currently is Borg 3 speed column shift. Will the single rail bolt straight up to my existing bell housing? Or would I be better off modifying a 6cyl to Toploader bell housing ? Thanks OLM8 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for all the info guys I haven’t done anything more at this stage. It’s funky but sort of old school fun on the column and there’s not many unmolested ones left. See what happens down the track. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Xw heater box core issue

    Maybe the only XY POV packs like mine and other early XY’s got the blow through heater from the XW? or even the XT? Most of them got the big box that you would normally think of for a xy heater. I’m no expert. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Xw heater box core issue

    My car however at some stage had a really old Smiths Beehive heater with fan , fitted to the car, probably because the original heater core leaked which was very common. It works great and is toasty warm it’s still got the old bakerlite hi/low switch. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Xw heater box core issue

    Hi all this might help There were two types of heater boxes for the XY. The one without the fan is commonly called a blow through heater it had a heater water core, but no fan and obviously no fan speed switch see the pic of my car It also came with the no fan , “heater delete” factory pov pack option.

  10. Thanks I worked out that Dellow do a bell housing to suit my hydro clutch set up. Dellow and Mal Woods , do a Mustang style short extension housing to bring the gear leaver forward. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. After a bit of soul searching I reckon the best solution for my application is to go.. T5 with the Mustang / Short rear housing to make it work with my bench seat. Having the extra legs in 5th is a bonus. What do you guys think? Has anyone here done this conversion onto a pre crossflow? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks ! I got in touch with Speco in Melbourne about a week ago, most all the parts to recondition mine are still available. About the only thing they don’t do is the main mechanism which I already have. I will get some pricing on it all. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks guys for the suggestions Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. There’s a few things going on in my head about this.. 1) Don’t spend any more money 2) Get rid of the gran pa gear change 3) Floor shift would be nice 4) Put an auto in , it’s just a cruiser As you can see I’m very confused But...I’m going to Sydney tomorrow a guy there, has a xy dash pad he’s giving away and he also mentioned he’s got a falcon 6 and a BW35 he doesn’t want. So basically anything could happen [emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Thanks for that. I’m really not sure what I’m doing with my car. The column change works fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
