Thanks for that Pete.


Yeah I know you would...it's other people that are the problem.
I think the ideal way for an AU would be to use a high quality aftermarket E-series type balancer and machine up a special setback(and underdriven of course) pulley for the correct AU alignment.

Agreed. Leon had one made up for his own TE but that was nearly $1000 all up buy the time everyone had f**k about with it! :shock:

Depends what manual. If it's a T5 from a Falcon with the left hand starter you'll either have to stay with the stock shorty headers or make custom or modify X-series aftermarket headers for the left hand side.
If it's a right hand starter type trans, off-the-shelf headers for X-series will bolt straight on.
For my column auto I'll have to make a cable linkage because the V8 BTR bellhousing has no mounting for the shifter linkage....no V8's were available with column auto y'see. I was going to do this anyway because the mech linkage is a sloppy piece of crap.

Sounds like he made it hard for himself because.....
XF/G don't have a K-frame and all you do is use XA-XE V8 mounts.
XH uses a K-frame that is the same whether 6 or 8 cyl...you just need the V8 mounts again.
I replied to your post about the auto on perthfalcs.

very detailed, wish i had this when i did the conversion in my xg ute.
I am yet to finish my a/c and i have a major leak with my power steering which leads to my next question.

i have the pully tool and am looking at removing the powersteerpump and modding it like yours.does the pump come apart easy (i want to replace seals and bearings)and attach a fitting to the low pressure as you have done(i think most of my leaks have come from there)

any advise before i tackle this :lol:

The resevoir comes off without the need to remove the pump. I think I had more detail about this in my 351w into XE post.

I don't. ....See how f**k long it's taking!?! :lol:
Yeah probably Tony does excellent work without tearing you a new one.
I'm throwing in a stocky BTR for the moment. If and when :roll: I need a tougher one I'll be talking to ya.

Cheers,
Pete.

Ok I pulled the engine out again so I could bolt up the auto and put the whole thing in together.

Image

As I mentioned previously, there was never a column auto 5.0L Falcon available so there was no reason for the shift bracket boss to be cast into the bellhousing as you can see here. I'll be making a cable setup for it instead.

Image

No EGR so no coolant lines needed....here's the plug you'll need to fill the hole in the intake.

Image

Tomorrow I should have some more about the trans crossmember which doesn't actually fit.

Good stuff mate.

Have you also made a decision for the V10 other than franks AU?
