    Hey Thom, we are keeping the fuel injection system due to the rules for the class it will be running in, or that definitely would be the way I would be going, and unfortunately, at this time I can't afford a heltech system to run so looking for the cheaper option for now Sent from my SM-S918B using Tapatalk

    CLEVELAND ENGINE TALK

    Yea the plan was 408 stoker for the van, but never been sure on a bb, like I have the spare 302 at home, just more of a price weigh up on things on parts as I build myself and the machine work gets done for me at cost or less Sent from my SM-G781B using Tapatalk

    XF AU Windsor conversion

    This is said fork they say to use with that bellhousing, now don't the Cleveland and Windsor use the same engine mounts?? So that would make the Windsor sit in the bay as the Cleveland, the crossflow the engine plates to the x member is different so not sure were u are going with measuring it, if need be may need to make ur own up to suit Sent from my SM-A125F using Tapatalk

    Are dellow still around?? That is the bellhousing I got in mine, yes it's not a Windsor or xf but they were great with the information at the time, from what I been told with the v8 t5 is yes input is longer but the rear housing was shorter to put the sticking same spot, like they did with the cortina using the single rail box's, as Ford wouldn't change the floor pan tooling just to suit v8 or 6 cylinder box's, one of the others guys would be able to correct if wrong.

  12. Hey mate U have gone to the trouble of getting to this point, when I did these things as a job it was very rare we wouldn't replace the diaphragms once brake fluid get to them it doesn't take long to stuff them up, the hardest part out of the whole thing is doing the rear and middle seals without breaking them, be careful with the Bakelite parts can break easy even though it looks hard as Sent from my SM-A125F using Tapatalk

    Nice one, here is a few pics off mine I made all my pipes new and just bent it to suit the t block bolts on were the bracket for the flex hose that would go to the xf diff. Sent from my SM-A125F using Tapatalk

    For me with the brakes which I did with my car, u are spending the time to do it do the finer details. Pull the back brakes lines off a EF/EL including the t block which bolts to the floor, then drill the brackets that hold the flex hoses to the chassis off. To make the the t block to work on ur xf half along the tunnel should be a joiner undo and take to a brake place and get to put the correct flare nut to go into the t block (sorry mind gone blank can't remember the number of nut), weld the flex hose brackets on then it's set up the same way as EF/EL in all of this aspect. With handbrake cable, mine was setup with a wagon cable which was off a a bench seat wagon so it use a foot parkbrake so possible to use some parts from one of them and parts from a sedan together. Also best part of using ford gear is when then checked my van for rego it all looks factory and it's not aftermarket stuff so they didn't want it engineered Sent from my SM-A125F using Tapatalk
  15. With the pedal box I would use the Auto pedal box and see if u can find a rare spares shop that has one these kits or maybe someone online and fit it Sent from my SM-A125F using Tapatalk
