    Engine swap Crewman cross 6 AWD

    Are you aware that the Cross6 motor has slightly different ancillaries up front with 2 drive belts, not the usual one serpentine ?

    ZB fans rejoice ! :) The bogans have them, already. :eek: Had the pleasure of being next to one at the lights this arvo.. …. black, lowered, big wheels with a tad of negative camber, cannon zorst with the muffler full of marbles (? rattled like hell) sounded like a bucket of bolts in the normal...

    I like your comments regarding the Territory :), it could have been a world beater, which it was back in 2004, but Ford stuffed it a bit with cost cutting like a frail front suspension, and an IRS that only just managed, giving it a bad reputation for problems. But the current 2020 crop are...

    Brock: Over the Top

    I don't think it is a movie, (like the loose TV drama of a couple of years ago) but a compilation of stuff readily available in a variety of places, if you go looking long enough. The fascination with Brock seems never ending, even nearly 15 years after he left us, but I am not criticising...

    Thrown a piston?

    Info for OP to show the number of things that could be covered by a 'thrown piston'. (yes, I goggled it, and it refers to a 'blown engine', but same thing.) https://www.quora.com/How-do-you-tell-if-your-engine-is-blown

    Thrown a piston?

    If it has thrown a piston, you should be able to see it sticking out the side of the block. Their diagnosis seems to be as dodgy as next weeks lottery numbers by a clairvoyant. IF, if it has done something drastic, whatever it is, it is not as simple as just putting in a second hand piston...

    Ute towing hitch

    The angle of the ball looks wrong, it should be vertical. Is the insert tube the correct one for the towbar ? As others have written earlier, go see a towbar retailer/fitter.

    I have a hard time connecting to site

    Same here, but didn't stick around to time out. Didn't know whether it was due to my Edge upgrade, or a deliberate attempt to get me to log onto a virus site, or problems with the forum, or a Cheyna cyber attack.

    The Random Thread

    As a Ford owner, ummm, dunno. When we collected our Territory Ghia, it was "There's the keys, there's your car," possibly because I had refused to play silly buggers with paint treatment, interior treatment, rust proofing, and extended warranty. Didn't even get a cup of complimentary instant...

    Apparently if you have a Ranger or Everest, they stop so that you don't damage the engine. Just the thing needed for a 4x4 in the great Oz outdoors.

    An easy and cheap way to make your v6 ZB accelerate much faster

    I wonder if I disconnect the rear drive shaft of my ute, it will then be FWD, and accelerate much more quicker ? Yeah ? Nah !

    Doh !. Maybe my finger error maths is as accurate as their advertising :(. Can't get too much bacon. But I find that the 'lack' of Aus content in a basic food item is alarming/confusing/concerning. Just like most canned and bottled foods are not Australian.

    I was going to buy some bacon at the local Coles deli, until I saw that it was made from "at least 18% Australian products". What is the other 89%, and where does it come from ?

    Commodore space saver wheel

    Luckily, I don't have any experience in how a space saver would handle. The tread pattern was enough to make you avert your eyes, replace the carpet and shut the boot. Good advice is that you do not put them on the front, upsets the ABS (along with other things shown in that video,) so that a...

    Commodore space saver wheel

    ...... and the $85 answer to my question is a 165/80x15-87T which fits in the boot wheel well, and is the same rolling diameter as a 245/40x18 tyre. So, no need now for filling the boot with a full size spare. Double :). I had posted this question earlier ...

    :eek: !!! Really ? I see that you are in Newcastle, and wonder which ‘dealer’ you consulted as to this problem, because I am not surprised at their suggested fix for it. Pull the motor out, dunk it in Throsby Creek, shake out the crap, give it a blow dry, job done. I am also surprised that they...
