Ford BA service manual $990 ... eek

No Gregorys available, rang Ford about the ridgy didge item and expected it to be in the low hundreds but wow man ... 990 bucks! , tried looking for a Gregorys website to see wether they had a book in the pipeline but can't find any info on it ... I hope they bring something out soon, cars running perfectly but still would like to know what makes it tick otherwise I just can't sleep at night.

Re: Ford BA service manual $990 ... eek

its only a matter of time before its released.
we were looking for a 96 nissan maxima service manual a while ago and the only one you could buy was $550. soon found a website that had the full 1750 page manual to download for free.
guess which one we got.

Re: Ford BA service manual $990 ... eek

I asked Ford by email 2 questions about my BA, they said buy the $990.00 book....I went to my dealer and asked if they could look in their book and answer my questions...they looked...the answers were'nt in there!!!!


990.00 F &%$^%$# ing dollars and 2 simple questions can't even be answered in the
F %^$*&^%% ing thing!!!!?????

( they were by the way; the thread size of the oil sender unit and the colour of the tach output wire from the PCM)

Pretty bloody simple I would of thought!

Re: Ford BA service manual $990 ... eek

I can probably answer the first question. Well for a BA XR8 anyway (I'd say they're the same for $ saving reasons). It's 1/4" (either BSW or NPT, not 100% sure as I havn't hooked up my pressure gauge yet, but I don't think it maters too much as they both should fit). This refers to the inside diameter as it's a pipe fitting.

Hope this is of some help.

I think you will find that National Pipe Thread and British Standard Whitworth are quite different. Did you mean BSP instead?

for example
1/4 inch BSW = 20 TPI
1/4 inch BSP = 19 TPI
1/4 inch NPT = 18 TPI

Agreed. NPT is usually american and it sure wouldn't be Whitworth.
