  1. I am 99% sure he had it from new, he still had it in early 97, I remember this because I got a drive of it when he called round to our holiday house in Falcon, not long after this we stopped going down because the house was rented out full time, I do recall it was a 200 (super pursuit), 3 speed column shift, he also used it to tow a caravan up to Coral Bay (I think) when he went up for holidays.
  2. The people (husbands name was Bob) who owned the one I am thinking of, moved to Mandurah in the late 80s, they owned it from new as far as I know. The last time I saw it was in 1998, at Halls Head Golf Course, I was there doing some work and saw it parked in the parking lot. So yours is probably not the same one, but it looks very similar with the trim on the bonnet and colour, the only difference I can see is the rims.
  3. It sounds like a fuel damper, VK/VL Commodores had them.
  4. You didnt get that XR from Halls Head area in Mandurah did you, the number plate/car looks familiar to one that my grandparents friends owned.
  5. It is a Crow 14771.
  6. Back when mine was still M90 I blew a couple of pistons similar to what another guy did on here recently with his turbo xflow. The motor that blew had 28cc Precision Hyperectic pistons, crow cam, roller rockers, main and head studs, hardened push rods, ported E1 head, decked block, shot peened rods and whatever else I have forgotten about, it now sits in the corner of my shed waiting for me to do something with it. It blew just before Powercruise 2012, so I put a 100% stock low Km EFI E2 head motor in and bolted the M90 supercharger and bits to it, and bugger me it went better than the one that blew, that is why the stuffed one is still sitting in the corner. I have since changed to the M112 and the stock motor is still going fine, it had me worried on New Years Day when it did not want to run, it turns out 2 MSD leads were stuffed, it was fine the day before. A few years back I contacted Camtech about a custom cam for when I rebuild the stuffed motor, and I seem to recall the cam had a 114 lobe centre.
  7. The M90 on a XFLOW thread is mine, and I have since changed the M90 to a M112 from a Jaguar V8. The basic set up is the same as the M90, except for the pulleys I changed them a bit, from HTD to 8 rib serpentine style. I also went from the Bronco throttle body to a single 80mm. It now has 14 to 15 psi, and goes a lot better than the M90 did.
  8. That was my brothers, I still think he was an idiot for swaping it for a BA XR8 ute. The amount of work that went into it, from cutting rust out, wiring, shortening diffs, seam welding, plateing up chassis rails and trailing arm mounts, xh fuel tank and mounts, exhaust, and all the other crap that was done. It is pretty much an EL 5.0 Falcon in a Cortina body. Engine is out of a EL not ED as add states, same motor any way, it is not a 185kw even though it has the Explorer manifold it was just a stock 165kw with stock cam and nothing done to it other tham the different manifold, he planed to build a stroker for it but it never happened. C4 is just a standard C4 out of a ZJ Fairlane with a shift kit. Diff is a Cortina diff with XD Discs, E series LSD 28 spline centre and shortened XD 28 Spline Axles. Electrics are based on EL Fairmont using the full Smartlock system including TIBBE locks on the front doors and Ignition switch, it also runs an EL Police instrument cluster, XF indicator and wiper stalks, electric front demisters (heater box removed). I did alot of the work on it from rust to electrics, it was built to be a keeper but after 2 months of been on the road my brother swaped it. To say I was pissed is an understatement.
  9. It will work, the part of the handle that pushes the pivot down is in different spots between the different doors. I have been through it before. I do have an XD,XF and XH and I double checked them before I posted yesterday. The cut out in the doors is the problem, they changed it on XG-H. Take a look how the handle acheives the push or the pull, the same handle will either push or pull depending on the location of the hole for the rod.
  10. The handles are also different from drivers to passenger sides. If you change the pivot on an XD-F for an XG-H, drill the hole in the pivot needed for XG-H or buy the genuine ones as above then the handles need to be used on the opposite side to what the were originally used. IE: The XD-F drivers with changed or drilled pivot will need to go on the passenger side on XG-H, and a XD-F passenger will become a XG-H drivers. The cut out in the door skin is different to accomodate it.
  11. Now that I think about it I had an early cast iron XD Ghia with factory A/C and it had the 7 blade flex fan, but I also had a febuary 82 alloy head XD GL with what looked like factory A/C (York compressor, 2 belt water pump, A/C, and ALT pulleys) and it had a steel clutch fan, it could have been original (looked original) or it could have been changed at some point. I looked in my Factory XD manual and it does not show clutch fans on 6 cylinders only on V8s, like you said. Maybe the GL above had XE stuff on it been a very late XD. My last van was a 89 XF and it had a steel fan when I bought it, I ended up changed it to a plastic one. By 92 Ford were probably fitting what they had around, as the XG was close to been released.
  12. The only difference would be on XD where factory A/C had the clutch fan and non A/C had a fixed fan. Non A/C water pump (NO CLUTCH FAN) had no fan thread and a different pulley bolt pattern compared to the A/C water pump (CLUTCH FAN). All XE and XF had Clutch fans factory, all XEs and Non A/C XFs had a steel one and A/C XFs had a Plastic one, they all used the same clutch and water pump. Some water pumps come with different impellers but this just depends on the brand of pump.
  13. xbcool is on the money, its on the passenger side at rear of block where the top of the bellhousing meets the block. In that picture at the top if you go towards the rear of where the 72DA number is you should find it. Xflows: XC-XE had it at the drivers side engine mount, XF (and possible some late XEs) drivers side near water pump.
  14. Bridge the 2 Green/Red wires in the trip computer plug.
  15. Splice into the fuel pump relay circuit. Fuel pump only runs when cranking, engine running, or for a few seconds when ignition is turned on.
