Has anyone managed to get the BBM off their falcon without taking the engine out?

It was more complicated than my year 12 maths exams :\

Quite easy with the right tools :) Hardest part in my opinion was getting the hoses off the fuel reg.

A xr6 fuel pressure regulator would make good use of those au injectors... food for thought.............I had the inlet manifold gasket changed in under 2.5hours lol, that back support bolt is a b**ch... lol

Lol I had the BBM off the head without too much hassle but then I saw the wiring loom was wrapped around the runners and disappearing into the sump somewhere.

just saying :P


haha is there much much difference with the fairmont and xr6 ecu's? I wouldn't mind changing mine because I think it's playing up. Isn't yours a manual ecu though?

Leave out back support bolt... Leave out silly little arm "holding" throttle body. Replace bolts to head with the hex head bolts from a spare BBM to make it easier in future.

Ahhah... But then you would have re routed the wiring loom under the bbm so it's not visable too. Of course polishing the BBM goes without saying. Whilst you're there, enlarge the throttle, replace injectors, higher pressure fuel reg, fuel pump, stick a different tune in that little box that is at the end of all those pesky wires.... Ah stuff it. Stuff removing the BBM. TAKE OUT MOTOR. Plane head, port the ports, bore the bores.

i think if i was going to remove one i would start by pulling on it to remove, then skip the "coat hanger" trick and start pulling bits out in pieces with a hammer

Just some more pics and stuff

Image

Somewhat polished my fuel rail & dipstick tube

Image

Cleaned all the carbon from the bbm runners and gave it a nice coat of silver

And I'm adding a manifold insulator which I got from.. mace.... sorry fiend I would have bought yours if I knew you sold them at the time :\

Other things being done are adding the brand new AU injectors and replacing all the leads.

Yes well... Having had to remove the inlet manifold twice in a little over a week on the lads AU, I consider myself now to be an expert... LOL Why twice you may ask??? Once when the welsh plug decided to spring a leak and then again when that lovely heater pipe that runs around the engine decided to let go in sympathy......

Yes that rear bolt is an absolute biatch.... I didnt have to remove it second time tho. :D

Perhaps everyone should just re attach their BBM with cable ties

Just so it's easier next time ;p

Same never had an issue.

Only once had I an issue...which was when replacing the fuel reg...the damn hose is a pain in the a*** until you realise detaching it from the hard fuel line would have made it much easier.
