    XD Timing

    Hi All, I'm pretty noob at my car, its an XD fairmont with a 250 xflow. The challenge i am having is that the car wont start, but there is some history here so bare with me.... I drove it for a fair few km's one day to grab some parts for it and it died (when i say died we turned the engine off and it just wouldn't start up again). Got it towed back home and through the troubleshooting process did the following: did the carby with a carby kit (gaskets etc) new plugs and leads new coil Checked timing I ended up getting a mechanic to look at it and they replaced the dizzy with a spare and he was able to get it running (however said the actual issue was weak spark due to cable from the coil). So we drove it for a week and then it died again, and here is where i'm at: There is fuel in the bowl and when you pump the pedal fuel squirts in There is spark (removed number 1 plug, put it in the lead and held to engine block and its sparks when you crank) There is compression (put finger in plug hole to check) So where i got to was timing/distributor. When checking it with timing gun its set to 6 degrees and it cranks but wont start (not even a splutter), when you full retard the dizzy it almost starts. Any suggestions where i go to from here? The thing i really cant get my head around is what could have changed between it work and then not working. Gav
  2. Just wondering if there are any replacement motors for the X series window winders.?? Has anyone tried EF maybe BA or equivalent? Mine are OK, in the ZL, but a couple are a bit slow. Tried lube, graphite powder, beeswax, but still seems the motors are dragging their arse a bit. Can they be rewound? Maybe just swapping the rear to the front might help, as they have done less work over the years. Cheers Bear.

    doors doors and doors their not all the same

    ok in this thread im going to try and clear alot of confusion between the different doors i'm going to start with confusion between xg/h doors and Xd/e/f doors (I know d to f theirs differences) At the front end of the door apart from the hardware used and a rebuildable hinge their the same. At the back is where the difference starts. I'll start with the lock mechanism in xd/f it's external on the door and the catch is almost a flat plate and the catch a xg/h it's internal e series type and the catch is a round bar and its catch Ok now it comes to the door handles xg/h door handles and most aftermarket handles will fit a xd/e/f but not the other way around Hears a pic of a genuine Xh handle from the inside Hears a d/e/f handle from the inside Now you can mix and match but it takes a bit of nounce. xd/e/f doors are a common conversion on g/h but you have to weld the holes up on a def catch and 're drill to suit the xg/h body Door handles can be swapped the reverse way by drilling a hole if you have enough metal or drilling of the pivot mechanism and fitting your g/h pivot mechanism and 're securing it with a self tapping screw or a bolt. that concludes this section as i grab some more doors out of my parts rack i'll update the differences between xg and xh doors also the differences between the xd/e and xf doors
  4. Has anyone ever seen any decent looking bonnet blackouts or GT style stripes? All the ones I have seen look crap, but there must be a way to make them look good. Otherwise a Shaker or BA Bonnet Bulge does look good. I am tossing up my options.

    Panel Van Tailgates and Barn Doors

    Ok so Id thought Id start a thread for those of us who are panno mad. What does your van have? My XF has barns and my XD has tailgates. Im trying to figure out a way to have a handle on the inside of the upper tailgate so it makes it easier for camping. Anyone got any ideas? share the things you have done or want to do! Keep on vannin!
  6. Hay y'all, Ok so as some of you would know by now-I am new to the major vehicle restoration thingy. I am looking to do as much as I can myself, this includes body repairs, preparation, maybe even paint-(thats a while off yet though). The first thing is: I have a large amount of rust in the XD van Im considering doing up, I may see what I can obtain in the way of rust replacement sections and donor bodies to cut out what I need. I may have to hand fab as well. My questions (so far) are these: What size steel do I use? Are switchable Arc/TIG inverter welders suitable?\ Are these units any good? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/SPOT-WELDER-GUN-12-ELECTRODES-by-KelArc-UK-FREE-POST-/200829902406?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D7179504701338063511%26pid%3D100015%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D1%26sd%3D200829902406%26#ht_2602wt_1111 http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CAR-BODY-STITCH-WELDER-KelArcWeld-thn-metal-Free-Post-/190753699594?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D7179504701338063511%26pid%3D100015%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D2%26sd%3D200829902406%26#ht_2966wt_1111 Found em on EvilBay.......reasonable price, but just not sure.
