XD Drive-line Rebuild Empty
PostSubject: XD Drive-line Rebuild   XD Drive-line Rebuild EmptyTue Jan 14, 2014 12:36 pm

So I finally got a bit of time to make a thread on my new project!  I'm rebuilding my XD Falcon's Drive-line including Engine, Gearbox and differential.  Here are some pics of the steps I have taken so far!
 
First up I ripped out the old single Rail Gearbox.  What a mess it is! oil everywhere even leaving a hand print as I got up out from under the car!

I made sure the new tail shaft I'm getting cut down fits into the back of this box.

Now I have everything disconnected and undone and she is ready to be lifted out!

Now moving the beast into the middle of the shed for more room!

And Away!

And now bolted to my new engine stand!  Kinda looks pretty for a motor that needs a rebuild Smile

XD Drive-line Rebuild 1517617_714246891933598_78586660_n

Now I got the extractors removed, clutch master cylinder and battery holder removed!

XD Drive-line Rebuild 1545926_715010011857286_39199050_n

Now I removed the brake booster and the steering box!  It will be sent of for refurbishment as well.

I also got stuck into sanding up some of the bad paint and scratches, especially where the old clutch master cylinder leaked!

now for the mini spool insertion.  We were also going to lower the ratio from a 3.23:1 to 3.45:1 but there was something wrong with the pinion so we went back to the 2.23.

Also cut of the old wheel bearing and replaced them while the diff is apart.

A quick update!  We found two bent Conrods so that slowed things a little but my uncle donated a couple of rods to me which was great of him. The block is bored and honed to 40 tho and I still have just on 2 mill on the bore walls. Just waiting for a new harmonic balancer now so we can get the bottom end balanced.

Ok guys and girls its time for an update I think!  finally today we dummy assembled the engine and checked all the clearances.  I also filed back the ring gaps for the pistons too.  Now we just have to wait for my harmonic balancer to come back from PowerBond because I had to send it away because it slipped so we got them to sort it out.!

Here are some pics!

Here is my block after it was bored and now on the honing machine!
