Yeah i gathered that :lol:

Well while your answering all my questions I might as well ask a couple more, Will the power steering and starter motor out of an EF/EL fit in my Fairlane? I've been googling stuff all afternoon and cant find a straight answer. Power steering fluid is leaking out of a hose everywhere in my engine bay and my starter motors on its way out i think, I ask about the EF/EL stuff because a mate of mine has a wreck i can get parts out of if i want it.

starter motors from EA onwards are the same. well not the same but fit. AU onwards use a reduced gearing starter. which will start the car using less power. and the units themselves are smaller and lighter.

power steering pump no. not unless you do the serpentine belt conversion (requires new aircon pump alternator power steering pump water pump timing case and thermo conversion.

however the high pressure line (which is most likely your issue) can be swapped over

So starter motor is OK? sweeeeeeeet.. saves me a few skins.

And high pressure line is the metal line right? with the rubber ridged hose type thing around it (dunno if that explains it right :lol: ) at least I think its metal, if so that where its leaking from. I cant see exactly where its coming from but the fluid does all run out the bottom of the rubber hose that surrounds it.. So I'm guessing you would be right about that being the problem. It is a pretty bad leak too, because I filled it up with fluid and it was empty again within half hour.

I can take anything I want from the wrecked car anyway so there's no harm in trying the high pressure line out.

Thanks again for the help mate.

Yeah thanks mate, I would never have thought i would own a Fairlane.. I've always had Commodores (I know, I know.. you don't need to tell me) up until recently. I swapped my VP Commodore wagon for a Mighty Boy... which turned out to be a POS and impossible to get parts for then I decided to look for a new car and this was the first thing that popped up, at first I overlooked it because of the problems it had but soon realised it would be worth it in the long run, i weighed up the pros and cons and the pros outweighed the cons so it was decided, I would be buying a FORD. :D

I'm glad i did buy this because you guys on this forum are extremely friendly and jump at the chance to help, unlike some other forums :roll: (not the mighty boy forum, those guys are equally as nice, there's a member on this forum that helped out a lot when i had problems with my MB)

About the car staying stock... stock isn't even on the cards anymore :D after seeing some of the cars on here I wont be able to help myself. Its funny how things work, my wagon was going to stay stock too until shaved door handles, side indicators, aerial and tailgate, matte black paint and ultra lows, happened. Lets just say maybe it wont be stock but I'm not going to the extent I did with the Commodore :D ... Things do get a little out of hand once you start modifying cars though :lol:

Here's a couple of pics of my old wagon if ANYONE is interested............ :lol:

I liked it better with the green rims..

I'm just curious for future reference, which motor and gearbox combos are available for straight swap in this model of Fairlane? I'm not after performance, I'm after reliability and fuel economy (I paid $1.49 for fuel today :o )

I have had a look around at what is available but i want to hear some personal opinions :)

any motor from the 4.0 range. the AU motor is the most popular choice. all thats needed is the fins on the front ground flat to clear the k-frame.

you can also go the 5.0 but this requires a loom swap and a k-frame swap


i also have to apologize to mick (NCIILANE) i tried to find pics of your car but slipped my mind before i submitted it.

I have a spare 5.0L Loom and K-frame if interested :wink: :lol: Can't help with the motor though unless you are willing to rebuild it........otherwise it's future involves holding up glass, coffee and Ford magazines :mrgreen:

Not to worry Huggie, I knew it wouldn't have been deliberate :P We share the same addiction!

But seeing as though you were struggling to find pic's of mine, let me help out :D
With stockies!
