Hi all, ive been a member for a while now but have just got pics up of my ride (just like Bozza17). Its my first car after hard work at Woolies...

I bort my car from J&M Motors, used to be next to the fella with the big shoe, in chermies. (J&M no longer there,maybe did a runner) They are/were the dodgyest fellas goin. After waiting 4-5days for roadworthy cert. a picked the car up and still there were things wrong that suggested a dodgy RWS. After about a month of cleaning it up (the car),changing oil, filters, painting console etc., i recieved a letter in the mail about car yards using a dead fellas name and number to rite out Certs. I had to get a machanic to look at it then he said i needed new brake pads n stuff...so got all that crap sorted out. Few weeks l8r, the beast started to tik! so we (dad and I, mostly dad) pulled the teppet cover off n bought 3 new tappets and threw them in...tapping went away for a few days then came bak, still dont no wtf is rong, mite try magnetec. n e way so here are some pics of my car after all was done...

(dont no if attachments will work)


DOnt no wats the go with the pics!
Cheers Ray

I think it just takes ages to load after u hit submit.

I can never get it too work.
Try loging onto fordgalleries and up loading them there, and then just link it. I think u get 500-1000k memory. Not much, so u have to shrink everything, and save it as .jpg (.jpeg)

Thats one nice clean ride you got there. Might I suggest you save hard for a cam and do ALL of the tappets at the same time. Its a common thing to go on the early e-series cars. The only thing really to fix it is to replace all the lash adjusters and while you at it get a mild cam put in.

If you have time, click on my link below for pics and bio of my car!:wnc:

This seems to be my most common response to new members posting up pics of there rides.

"Needs clear indicators!!"

LOL, I'm sure that's not the last time I will say it either!! :p Great car BTW, is it Manual or auto?? You'll find te I6's quite easy to squeeze those precious KW out of!!!

Very nice indeed. It is great that more younger guys are starting to appreciate the looks and power of an E-series falcon. When I turned 18 (only 4 years ago) there were hardly any decent ones around where I live. Now I see at least one a day with some decent mods and a young dude or lass driving it. Wise choice in your vehicle and may the Fords be with you!

Looks good - reminds me of the one I used to own before I upgraded it with an XR6.
I always felt the bumper stripe should have been the same colour red as the car...

But top stuff mate, looks very neat!

Thanks mate, I have spent a lot on maintenence and havent really spent all that much on mods. I beleive a car should be working to its best before mods can be added. So far to date, I recall spending around the 15k mark in replacing parts, tuning and overall maintenance on the car. Next week on Friday, I have the car in again to get my rear left hand diff seal fixed coz thats leaking onto my bumper, plus Im getting my fuel filter changed as the car is running rough around the edges, while its there Im getting the front end suspension checked over for excessive wear and possible tierod ends replaced. So yes, you can say its well looked after!:fraz:

as far as the cam is concerned for your car, I would consider perhaps a Jim Mock dev2 or dev3 kit depending on cash. That should see you pull at least 125rwkw.
