I read somewhere that Mal wood uses Transmax z in all there T5 gearbox's,alternative would be 70/80 light gear oil..with an additive like lubrizol,I think there's also some synthetic gear oils which may be something to look into aswell

for the moment just to the AU motor with the clutch/pressure plate it came with [bought T5 and everything needed to convert to manual ... except tailshaft & box wiring lol ... cheap]. re barra .. still need to workout what wiring i need & etc etc etc . . . . . ... :roll: . if barra goes into the AU . . . will be using cable clutch [have a few cables coming] .... i think. but the AU's rego runs out in just under a year & won't be renewed.

with the barra will be either fitting the EB T5 just to get it up & running ..... or buy the correct setups i've seen on upay T5 [or is it T56? ] .... which come with all items needed [i believe? .. well except the sedan tailshaft :x ], with the clutch being a standard piece?. why not make up a bracket for the later hydraulic pedal [pedal & hydraulics only] & mount that to the X-series brackets .... maybe use a auto pedal box & mod that?. will be modding the BA/BF setup to fit in the EB wagooon .... which is waiting for a wash & wiring strip


currently hunting around for a very cheap BA/BF tailshaft :lol: :lol:

Yea T56 is the tremec BA/BF 6-speed,will see how it goes when I start prepping for paint as the engine and box are coming out to paint engine bay (may weld unused holes and smooth aswell ) have finally got some decent XR6 headlights too,if I'm lucky I may be able to get hold of BA-BF peddle box to adapt the clutch with -we shall seeee :wink:

p.s Im going Xtreme clutch for the T5 -but if I go T56 its a bloody expensive clutch for the T56 :roll:

Edit Tremec T56 is the 6-speed-sorry for for the miss info :oops: :roll:

soo .... for a few months I have a BF LPG wagooon to play around with ... runs like shiiit & lost reverse somewhere :?: :roll: just started removing the engine cover so I could hava looksy & .. found the pcv valve had lost it's base :lol: :lol: :roll: replaced that & it now "idles" a bit betterer .. which is good. have yet to change coils/plugs to see if that changes anything. eventually will have to put it up on stands so I can checkout the wiring to the box & the fluid level. ohh found it's a real pain in the rear end to remove rear door trims when the door is locked [ie outside door handle not working & child lock on] :| replaced door lock & all fixed. if I can get it to run well .. hopefully might have time to pull AU apart & fit another AU motor/box :mrgreen:

Cheers

$150 pick a par special might get ya reverse back, solved the brothers milkshake box that way, wait that cost me 5 times more than that after purchase of new socket set and a heap of oil to put in the box, plus the trans jack attachment to fit the jack that was pretty much useless laying in the driveway trying to use it

Did you find the base or is that long gone into the sump :lol:

i remember way back when i was a little tacker, dad had a old XF falcon one of the rear handles were broken, i put the child lock on that door OOPS dad wasn't impressed.

on that note im surprised noone ever came up with some billet handles to solve the handle breaking problem once and for all

the outer handle wasn't broken ... the rod from it had been removed due to the door lock not locking. changed the actual lock for a spare & refitted the wayward rod .. all locks again :wink: :lol:

will change the coils soon as coz when it gets warm/hot it runs crappy & drops rev's real quick. took it for a quick run to see if anything had changed .... cold ran a lot betterer .. but pull up at an intersection to hang a "U"e .... and in front of the highway patrol car . . . it stalls :evil:

wellll .... ended up picking up a box for it at that price as AU box don't work with the BF, hopefully all is good that way :| . altho during the time it has sat in driveway .... there has been a small leak from either tailshaft or somewhere close!

BF has had original seats/carpet/console removed, with original front seats swapped for some NF seats. currently has the parts from the BA sedan parts car waiting to go in. just need to remove electric window wiring looms....... from the BA :mrgreen:

Ps. aka white/yellow/blue peril is refering to the colour it is now/colour it was as a taxi, and the original colour from the factory.

sooo . . . . not long after getting the BA home, i stripped out all seats & console. vaxxed the carpet about 6 times, did the seats 2 or so times. cleaned the dash with a supacheeap product ...... easily 6 times to get rid of a 'whiteish' mark. looks AND smells a lot betterer now.

have changed inlet section from filter box to TB with a unit from a Terry. currently have the ICC unit out whilst i work on fitting floorwell lamps & a console light, wiring is ready to go in for that. hacked out the dash loom section that goes from passenger side 'A' pillar to drivers side 'A' pillar from an 04 Fairmont. just working out what wiring is needed from that for the wagoon so everything for the clock works. have the Fairmont wiring BEM to clock, which i'm kinda thinking will work without any serious trouble.......... was going to fit/mount an NF interior light [which i actually did - works well too with the leds fitted] however i'm now currently thinking of going with the FG interior light for the more 'modern' look. will be fitting the AU roof sunglasses holder coz i have two & only one BF unit [hers].

car drives well. ran well on the drive back from lilydale, with only one hiccup :(. only problem i noticed was to do with the LPG side. when i picked up the BA & started driving home i noticed the lpg tank was empty, so i threw some in for the rive home [coz i love lpg], as soon as i let go of the pump handle i had a fuel leak! .. this will be fixed when it goes in to have the tank tested. the wheels from the BF will be fitted & the rear badge work has been removed. due to the tailgate window tinting 'bubbling' it will need to be removed which is no biggy.

car did have it's build sheet when i checked under rear seat, however a mouse had beat me to it :(

some parts will come off the BF parts wagooon as well as the BA sedan. [ie one rear exterior door handle from sedan. passengers mirror cover & as mentioned wheels from BF.] eventually i would love to put the BF fuel tank in [lpg only] with a small petrol tank similar to - https://www.fordforums.com.au/showthread.php?t=11331318 [awesome car that one!] however i won't be going as far as he did!.

so . . . . 4 years and counting :lol: :lol: :roll:

i now have this.......

Image


duel fuel. elec windows front/back, standard aircon.

a 2003 BA wagooon :roll: :lol:

Image

did look like this when picked up. floor carpet was vaxxed at least 6 times, seats twice, dash cleaned at least 6 times to get rid of some whitish marks [as seen in pics], air vent was pulled on passenger side to clean front better ....... then i saw the back :shock: :shock:


Image

Image

Image

dash outlet

Image

then i gots carried away . . . . now looks like this......... :mrgreen:

Image

ICC was removed so i could get in behind it. console now has a rear light & will also shortly have footwell lights.

plus fit the Fairmont loom so i can fit the factory clock. have some wiring to add to the ICC plug so clock works as should [thanks to magna]

Image

have wired in an aftermarket bluetooth for the phone. and today i recieved a small gift from ebay.....

Image

will be fitted as soon as possible plus find a suitable trailer plug. standard interior light was replaced with an NF interior light similar to pic.

Image

however when i was at a local wreckers i saw an FG interior light ..... so out with the NF & in with the FG :lol: :roll:

Image

all interior lights have been replaced with led's. the ones fitted to the passenger rears had to be altered to work with the positive earthing in the actual lights. all work very well.
will also be fitted with the AU sunglasses holder [as i have a pair of em] from the AU. as mentioned [somewhere??] i have fitted a Territory air intake plus flexi hose. hopefully will update front brakes to the larger. also hope to later fit the AU diff as it's a 3.45. plus use the BF's [parts car] wheels.

Image


Cheers
