  1. Okay, thankyou Ford workshop manual. I think I was on the right path anyway. I've removed all the sump pan bolts, and just need a bit more wriggle room to get the pan off. The manual says to undo and remove the front diff bolts x3 and then it will create enough wriggle room to slide the rack or "steering gear" out the drivers side with the ball joint knuckles cracked. Steering column and pencil shafts have to be undone and removed also. But gee that really beats the effort required to drop the whole x-member. A small win. Sweet! New front springs and sh
  2. I this big old diff in the road! Ive got it all unplugged and can move it around, but theres these big bosses blocking it from being slid out of the passenger side wheel arch. Im thinking the whole subframe has to come down, but to do that it looks like I need to get the damn manifolds off??? Must be a better way.
  3. So I'll probably phone Bayford or Jefferson on Tuesday morning for a new one. Heading through the bush back to a mates place on gravel. Up hill and there was a speed hump sized crest I didn't see and hit it at speed. My shocks and springs are quite soft all round from towing horse floats and she went WHACK. Pulled over immediately and she bled all over the place. Left it where it is, tow truck on Tuesday maybe. Its bent with a small slit, so hopefully the pick up is good. Do you guys think there is anything needed apart from a pan and gaskets?
  4. Id love to own a nice timepiece, but my job is filthy and sweaty. Casio it is for now
  5. What am I looking at here? Edit: Nevermind.
  6. Cracked turbine housing in the flapper area and between the dump pipe holes. Could have a new housing for ~$950 but 250,000kms I figured get something nice.
  7. I forgot to add, this was exactly how it went down. Anyone wanting to put a GTX Gen 2 turbocharger on a B series manifold in a territory, you can do it easily by drilling new holes in the old actuator bracket. You can use the old actuator as well, and it fits with approximately 3mm of preload which is a tad more than required (use a persuadertron to relieve it if you want). I'll add a photo when Im back under it again as it will show you exactly where I drilled. Using the supplied GTX Gen 2 bracket is basically impossible due to the locations of the fastener bosses cast into the c
  8. Does such a thing exist for the Territory? Im out of space trying to get an intake to work with the big 4" compressor cover and I dont really want a battery in the cargo area.
  9. My car is 2007 and who knows how long the pump has been in there (250,000kms). I dont plan on running more than 12 pounds either.
  10. Just checkin back in. I replaced the cat pipe which was leaking and I figured why not just replace the whole lot. $650 or thereabouts for a big stainless one from Venom Exhausts. Bolted in absolutely perfectly, cleared everything and all gaskets and fasteners supplied. Boy has that got rid of the farty leak sound and given me a nice throaty burble. Checked the first muffler pipe and someone has de-bunged it already. Car revs easier now, seems happier! Have injectors and a fuel pump on the way. Went with the regular 255lph Walbro and some 42Lb Bosch injectors. Keeping it moderate. Keeping it sa
