Fuel Gauge adjustment

Make sure the temp gauge is not also reading wrong - they both use the same regulated power supply.

Oil pressure

The 2.8, 2.9 and early Essex run at around 50psi - the later Essex runs at a higher pressure. Your 2.8 is fine - relax

Rain today forecast on the west coast of the south island - but not cold so we grin and bear it.

Pedal box

I have a pedal box but I'm not sure if its for a 5 or 6 but as we are in NZ at the moment it will be a while before I can check - still if all else fails. Live in Newcastle by the way so not close to you.

Is a Coupe rear bumper the same as the SE5? - again!

The V6 bumper is shorter than the 5A bumper - I have both - the turned end of the V6 bumper is also not as deep as the 5A bumper. Don't know about the bumpers fitted to the 5's - I don't have one of them.

Engine lifting

Always used rope myself behined the crank pulley at the front and behind the sump at the rear. Never had a problem with any engine type - the rope "bites" against the metal so does not slip.

Hello! New member here

That's what we called a fusable resistor and is put in the circuit instead of a fuse. Not qutie sure why though - probably just cheaper. Not at home at the moment so I cannot measure the value you need but it will be a low resistance. The ECU switches the earth leg of the pump supply. If yours is in...

That is a very nice looking car - not that fond of the 2.8 engine myself - the 2.9 in our MB is much better. The T word is fine by me having had nine of them - only rust let them down hence our move to Scimitars - we have four. Currently in NZ staying with friends on holiday which is why I am mailin...
