    140amp Alternator for the 250 cross flow

    I got an aeroflow 140amp chev alternator. Changed to an xd alt bracket ( I have an xf) a few spacers on the bottom mount and it fits fine. I need to run a heavier charging wire ( haven't done that yet ) one wire hookup. Should be able to run thermo fans, trailer lights & headlights fine.

    Xf ute quarter damage

    Can't up load pic from phone. File too big or something. Don't need a whole quarter. All the damage is just around the light. The bit the tail light fits in to.

    Xf ute quarter damage

    Greetings and shit. Haven't been on here for ages. A lot has happened one of those things was I backed in to an Armco rail with my ute and fucked the quarter panel of my ute where the light goes. I bashed it back out enought to get a light in so I could drive the ute. Anyway I want to fix it. The easyest way I can see is to find a ute to cut a chunk of quarter panel out off and weld it in. Just gotta find one. I'll get a pic of the damage latter.

    yeah i got it on the right stroke i rotated it and watched the valves. They dizzy wires might be up to shit tho. There's a pink/red and a black wire. pink one goes to coil negative right ? Black goes to coil positive. Seems wrong some how

    Yeah just done that but used timming light and theres a mark on the dizzy where the trigger point seems to be . I think it will work. I'll just prime the oiling system again and try again. Thanx for the replys

    Getting that fire up without too much cranking over is always tricky. May have been ok but i could have flooded it when i filled the bowl on the holley. I sort it tomorrow.

    I like that my XF ute has character. No power steering or creature comforts to complicate it
