that rust situation looks familiar. I should post some progress pics of mine. surprised you're swapping in an xe dash - the odometers fuck out routinely I've been through 3.

I actually didn't realise they had weak clocks. Nah the xf dash is crap. It weight half what the xe does and the clocks are just nasty. Retro but not in The good way. I have some s pack clocks with volts and oil pressure in them so id rather get that working properly anyway tbh. Also if the Speedo drive is in the back of these (I haven't checked) I'll get it recalibrated to read correctly with my wheels. The rust thing I was expecting. Meh. Its an old Ford man I'm not that naive anymore lol I'm chuffed to have not found more.

Having several broken odometers in an XE dash is still better than staring at an XF dash. They're horrible.
With you all the way there.

Hey there I noticed that the Weber carb you have for your car is the later model version with the anti-pollution gear on it. I recently rebuilt one of these for one of my cars and it works awesome however you will want to do away with the 2 stage idle jet as they almost always cause problems when they get old due to the little diaphragm inside failing. Weber performance in Australia can supply a simple and cheap jet holder that allows you to replace the problematic component and also allows you to fit different jets for tuning a modified engine.

http://www.weberperformance.com.au/product_info.php?cPath=6_268&products_id=1345

The 2 stage jet is a 70 when the engine is cold to aid warm up and a 50 when the engine is warm for improved economy and reduced emissions (but probably not optimum performance). I am running a 60 in mine and it seems pretty good all round.

This picture may be helpful showing the standard jetting for the 34ADM, it's good to check that nobody else has messed with the jets etc.

I'd be keen for some pics of how your carb is set up with plumbing to emissions cannister etc too. I removed the lpg and need to replumb the mess.

Thanks I'll look into that I'm keen on the tuning bit . Bronze I'll get some pictures but I just chuced mine together a bit of trial and error until it ran right.

Pretty sure I have a diagram somewhere that shows all the vacuum connections. There are a lot of hoses to sort out so I will have a hunt and post it up if I can find it.

that could be handy if it's an nz one - I have an aussie manual but they have all sorts of emissions shit nz new didn't so it's not much help. I just need a rough guide as all the hose is all over the show and the idle is sky high.

Here you go, not sure if this is for an Australian or NZ car but maybe it will be useful to both of you.

I know at some stage they went to a full electronic distributor (no vac advance) so this diagram will not be applicable to all models.

Bronze, maybe you can start a thread in the tech section as I am sure members on here will be able to assist you with your LPG de-conversion.

I realise I'm too late to the party with this one, but I have a Mallory twin point dizzy from a 351w that needs rehoming if the need finds you. I ain't never gonna use it.

Jealous of your bench seat score - where did you get it and do all the XA-XF ute/sedan/wagon benches fit between any model?

Also have you sussed some Tridents yet?

i was in it already but under 2 seat covers. its pretty nice though. not sure about XA-C but the XD-XF do, i think the XG-XH are different. i could well be wrong!  you can go from from single seats to benchies in the same models though the mounts are the same. mine uses the oe holes through the floor braces and 5mm square washers on the underneath.
