    FG NA into BA

    Early fg motors have the b series dipstick blank, later ones don’t.

    wheel spacers

    Not the easiest wheel to find these days unfortunately. I missed out on a set a few weeks back.

    wheel spacers

    First off, you want hub adapters, not spacers. Adapters bolt on, spacers slip on. Not a Ute but I ran 50mm spacers on the rear of my Au ghia with zero issues. Another option, if you want to keep the tickford look is track down some e series offset au xr rims. Will do the same thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    AU tickford dished rims?

    That would be a no on both counts I would say. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    XD Toploader

    Ahh the old Xd with a factory top loader and nine inch urban myth... Well, almost. At best it would be a dealer fit. Unprovable either way.
  7. I’ve used ultra king and bought from super Suzuki or whatever they’re called a few times now, never had an issue. I think the shocks I just put in the front of the el might be ultra king too.

    Barra into xf

    E series diff is by far the easiest and most cost effective option. Look through the project threads and you will see what others have done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If a Barra bolts straight into an au then the reverse should be true. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Glad this thread is here haha, my thermos have just started playing up. Won’t switch to high speed when the car starts getting hot (like in slow traffic) fans stay on slow, which still stops it from over heating but it definitely heats up. Hitting a/c doesn’t help, they cycle up and then shut off, presumably no gas in the a/c so it won’t let it run.

    EF Ford 5.0 HO

    All e series 5.0s are high output.... means nothing really, they still slow.

    1972 Escort Panelvan

    I'd imagine Barra would be a head funk if you wanted it to be remotely legal. Realistically a well built pinto and a decent auto is the easiest and probably cheapest way to go. I've never known them to be remotely economical though, that big old weber loves a drink. Never driven one on gas. I went from a mk5 sport to a xb Fairmont 302 back many years and my fuel costs barely changed haha. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Barra fits. Barra and auto plus shortened (very) e series diff. All cheap as dirt parts. Bf or fg Barra will run for ever and go good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ohhhh, you have ftr’s! I’ve been chasing a mint set of those since I got my wagon haha. I’m going out first thing in the morning to hopefully buy the wagons new shoes.
