1985 Ford Falcon XF 250 crossflow from Australia and New Zealand
Runs quick gets me from a to be
Its main thing was the clutch went on it, and also another main problem with Xf's are their rear main oil seals.
I have had a few problems with the steering. I have replaced pitman arm, idler arm and the steering bow needs replacing.
I have had to fix a few door handles, but that's OK not to much of a hassle, there is also so a water leak that I will fix soon.
I have been having problems with the starter motor solenoid playing up and the starter get stuck until you push start it, but I made my on little by pass switch running from the battery directly to the starter motor and when you press then button it clicks the starter and UN sticks it, until I buy another solenoid.
But one good thing is that I am a mechanic.
Well she runs pretty well, and has a lot of torque.
Has unreal acceleration, and has got plenty of balls.
Pretty good and reliable car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
