ford falcon xr6 0-200 (manual, naturally aspirated/non turbo)
the car has a full Exhaust, intake,
stage 3 cam, & of course a Dyno tune.
Not sure why it shudders in gear 1 so much when trying to launch, its got a
bit of a clunking problem despite the rebuilt lsd diff and new
driveshafts.. perhaps the tyres are simply too wide.
update: i know why it shudders - it's called axle tramp (which is normal
and quite common in rwd cars), and i've already got rid of half of it + the
clunking is pretty much gone..
stiffer gearbox/engine/diff mounts is what you need to completely stop the
EB falcon cylinder head reassembly-how to + a small blooper!!!
as per title, YES I DROPPED A F&%KING CABLE TIE INTO THE TIMING CASE!!! IT
WILL BE OKAY(IT'S ONLY A VERY SHORT CABLE TIE), SO DON'T CARRY ON ABOUT IT.
IF YOU HAD DROPPED SOMETHING METAL INTO THE T/CASE, THEN IT WOULD BE A VERY
BIG PROBLEM(which would require a lot of dis-assembly)!!!

Nolathane - BA Falcon Diff Bushing 49159A
www.nolathane.com.au - A short video explaining the new Ford BA Falcon/ SX
Territory differential rear bushing mount # 49159A.
Nolathane are very pleased to announce the availability of the new and
improved rear mounted differential bushing for BA FALCON and SX
TERRITORY models. Designed to replace the high wearing and typically

the factory shell and features improved designs for superior functionality,
durability and performance.
Reduced diameter at leading edge of bushing for ease of installation into
the retained factory shell
Voided deflection ring surrounding the core of the bushing. Introduced to
prevent unwanted bushing preload once installed which minimises noise
and vibration harshness transmitted through the differential.
Also supplied in the kit is a universal 'cut to length' centre bolt to
cater for the 4 differential and damper variations out in the marketplace.
installation guide goes through this cutting procedure, which is imperative
to ensure maximum thread engagement and function of the part.
