For the speedo gear - in the side of the gearbox. Ask ford what colour you need when you buy it.

O2 sensor is, well... a sensor that measures O2. They are in your exhaust near the engine.

I think the 3.45 needs the black wheel and yes the e-series oxy sensors have 3 wires each (AUs have 4).

Will help you determine what speedo gear you need. Depends on what diff ratio you had stock to what one you'll need now.

lol

Haven't got the stally installed yet :(

yeah brakes got new pads - the dba slotted are still going strong. Until I get a caliper/rotor upgrade.

I've 'fixed' the flat spot. FWIW I had all my rims balanced sans tyre. The rims are round.
