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
Hi everyone, Pulled my xc off the road to do a few maintenance things and also replaced the water pump. Mine has aircon and was running a three belt v-belt pulley with a solid aluminium spacer against the fan. I pulled the old one off and put it in the trash box, but didn't throw it out. I guess out of sight, out of mind. I have to have two manuals for the xc, one for the body and running gear and the other for the xf engine so when I ordered a new xf water pump I used the manual. When the pump arrived I checked it off against the xf manual. All correct. Now comes a lesson in tardiness - I fitted the new pump and forgot to physically check the new one against the old one before I did. Wouldn't you know it, the pulley fittings are different and my fan won't fit. Center hole in my fan is far too small and bolt holes closer together. I assume that the mechanic who put my engine together and into the xc must have used an xc water pump which has a small hole in the aluminium spacer and fan. The standard xf has a large threaded shaft. The question is, would there be any problems with getting an xf fan and bits from somewhere and lining everything up with the aircon, alternator and crank pulleys? or should I just simplify it by ordering another xc water pump with the holes that will match my own fan and spacer? Any advice muchly appreciated. Heath

Any help would be much appreciated. The car is unroadworthy in its condition but I refuse to sell ny xg lol
Hi Guys, Replacing the T5 with a C4 in my XF sedan. Can anyone tell me if I need an auto pedal box or whether I can get a away with removing the clutch pedal and putting an auto brake pedal in as I have heard replacing the whole pedal box isn't easy... Also, will I need a new gearbox cross member? Or can the manual cross member be used on the auto with a few easy mods? Thanks in advance .
