steelies' 64 ford wagoon
Posted 13 May 2008 - 12:53 PM
my XM falcon wagon:
- x-flow 4.1
- C4 box, recently changed to column from nasty floor shift
- 14" valiant rims, steel of course, 185/55s
- lowered on compressed coils and blocks, ass is still in the clouds at the mo
- XF disc brakes front, remote booster.
- XW (?.. not sure) diff and drums
- sounds, front & rear plus tweets and sub.. due for overhaul
- just got rid of 'noisy boy' exhaust cut, was great fun.
- elec. fan, the 4.1s too long for a fan with current radiator
- alloy jappa radiator waiting to go in
- more rust and crash repairs than original metal
plans are for ex-aircraft hydraulic suspension, though progress is slow.
thats all i can think of, here are some pics.. please excuse the photo quality, i only have access to average cameras and own a ford so i cant afford one of my own
as i bought it - wow nice cragars
as it sits now:
as it was: (*sigh*)
^^pesco hydraulic pump, ex DC3

- mystery noise in front end still annoying the fuck out of me.
- front wheel bearings, brake rotors and pads replaced
- fuel tank actually screwed down now
- sounds reinstalled - rear 4"s, front 5 1/4"s + tweeters, 10" bandpass sub, 2xamp
- new carpet and underlay
- missing scuff plate replaced
- ramflo filter, the motors so oversize the filter has been a cunt to fit in.
- new accellerator cable c/o burkes cycles jeah

- new idler arm bush
- new swaybar link bushes
- brake linings came away from shoes when we tried to adjust them, in getting relined today.
- pics of scrapy scrapy, not too bad but if anyone knows where i can get another XM/P rear bumper, keen.
oh yeah we took a couple leaves out so now its even worse to drive but more importantly, it looks a bit better

pics will come soon.
recently got broken into a day before zolo swapmeat : front speaker pods ripped out, sub taken (all worth about $80 total) small window smashed and door dinged from meatfist break-in skills. would have just given them the speakers to save a window
got new speakers and put a perspex window in
have taken drastic measures and started cutting etc for hydraulic gear install, she's sitting on lowered bumps in front, and on bumps in rear ie 10mm off frame rail. this gives me 20ish mm from gearbox x-member to ground with noone inside.
thus we have the conclusion i need to find another 25mm of lowerage. but happy at present.
check back soon for some photos

this is an indication of the height - real height (lowt?) is plus (minus?) a little more

sucks how the guts hang lower than the sills. will need to put cans under sump or exhaust to achive full crush!
looks a tad lower from standing height of course but TBH on the bumps it looks about as low as CDL's crown on the tiny wheels. damn you slam friendly toyota
- reservoir finished at last, just need to add valve gear supports and mounting tags, then pump system is ready to throw in.
- made wedge shaped 1" blocks to add to new blocks shown above. pinion angle at full sack was atrocious due to gammy leaf setup.
- stroke limiters in rear rams, ie ready to flush and bolt in
- hydraulic hose guru booked for next week
- switches wired
- it started the other day - bonus/unusual
- tea strainer from japan city makes a perfect carb filter
list appears to be changing rather than shrinking, no surprise there.
