OK, quick tip here mate.

The EF/EL radiator have different bottom hose sizes compared to the EA-ED.

So you will need a specific one for a Boxcar.

Unfortunately, you cant use an EF-EL water pump without converting to a serpentine belt setup, or I would suggest you get one of them.

Cheers
BenJ

well the wagon has now got a new water pump and what a pain to fit, now i have the 24 hour waiting game once again.

but i have been doing some research about car fridges and i am think off putting a waeco TC-14FL

as the wagon will be used as the fishing cart, so i am after people's opinions who use waeco car fridges

time for another update and the wagon has some more things bought for it

first of i finally got arfound to installing the rear speakers but needed some spacers as the speaker holes in the tail gate are a bit to big for 6" speakers so i bought the adapter plates below and they work excellently and they can be picked up from JB HI-FI

also i picked up a universal light bar from supercheap as i will be putting a set of driving lights on the wagon and i am still undecided off what lights i will be using
Attachment:

below pictured are the front speakers i am running in the wagon

below pictured are the rear speakers i am running in the wagon

also i have been doing a bit of painting on the wagon and i will have pics up once the weather clears up

cheers bear
