Hi all, has anyone got a link or info on doing a 4l engine conversion into zk Fairlane? my searches are coming up with nothing. I have seen plenty of pictures of people doing them and just want to see if there is a thread going that has the info available. I pretty much only need help with the wiring side of things. how much of the au loom do I need to keep and how is it spliced into the zk. I have the engine sitting in the bay as we speak but the wiring side of things has me beat. The ZK is efi so some of it may be useful, i'm not sure. any help would be appreciated. Cheers
XH II XR8 posted a topic in Transmission and DifferentialA couple of questions, on a 1998 XH XR8 what controls the kick down? driving at 100kmph cruising with light throttle the trans will kick back to 3rd gear by its self, by pushing you foot to the floor will make it change back up again at high revs to top gear. at times jumps straight back to third but comes right for 50-100km or so then with no issue. a 200km trip could see it do it 3-4 times. trans shifts smooth, functions normally other than this kicking down by its self. any thoughts people? cable? solenoids? sensor of some sort?
Hi all, I have a 3 spd auto carbi xf. I have a LSD disc brake diff out of an e series I think that I want to put into my car. I know I need to change the master cylinder. Anything else? I think my dad said I might need to change hand brake cable. I also want to t5 swap it. For that I will need a crossmember and gearbox mounts which I can get from Castlemaine Rod Shop or an XG or XH. A manual pedal box which I have at my local wreckers waiting to be picked up. Will I need a bellhousing out of a t5 XG? And then later on this year I want to put an AU intech non VCT motor in. I can do the job I just need to find all the info and I've been reading up the past month and am struggling a little bit. If anyone has any info or can post links to threads that they know might have info it would be greatly appreciated. It dont want to pay someone to put it in id rather attempt it and learn something from it. So far I know I will need XG engine mounts, I will most likely go standalone ECU or chip the au ecu to bypass smartlock. Im going to need an xg bellhousing to adapt the t5 to the au motor in the future. XG swaybar doesnt clear the au sump so im gonna have to go custom I think. Any more info or links is greatly appreciated. Would not even think of doing stuff like this without this forum.
