41  Technical Board / Modification Help / Re: Mounting a towbar on: October 15, 2017, 09:18:15 PM


Phil

On my green FE Sedan that I tow my old ply caravan with (says it's only 230 kg on the rego Cool)
the tow bar is just bolted up to the rear bumper bar bracket bolt locations with longer bolts

At some stage 1 of the internal nuts welded on the inside of the chassis rail has let go and someone has drilled a series of holes to gain access and removed a small piece of the inside edge of the rail in order to fit a new nut

I have never bothered to fit crush tubes to this car, however on the Ambulance Panel van crush tubes have been fitted to it's tow bar, sorry can't get pics of it atm

As your van is heavier, it would probably be a good idea to go with the crush tubes, maybe someone can advise the best way to do this

I have a 2 in 1 out muffle on mine and makes the right noise and goes well even though the pipes are long

Ret on here does a boot spring tensioner kit thet reqires drilling 1 hole each side
Not sure if it will work on your 1 good spring
I think the same or slightly wider springs were used on FB EK models these will fit with a little filing you can fit these items without removing the lid

I can't zoom in that well but could just have had ute doors fitted without filling in the bodywork?

Maaattte

You have my interest, when you say it was hard to leave was it because you were loaded down with goodies ?
49  Technical Board / Restoration Help / Re: windlace on: September 08, 2017, 03:37:40 PM

G'day Gary

I believe that type / style of windlace was used in various colours on all FE models

It was also used on FC ute & Panelvan not sure about 215 & 217 sedans, but on FC 225 sedan & 229 wagon it was the black / silver fleck

Attached pic is of FC panelvan windlace in green

Cheers Garrry

Stinky
I had an issue when using different brighter (LED?)globes apparently some other bit of kit needed to be added to the circuit so I went back to standard globes

Hello Ex Army 217

It's probably not so unusual for it to be sold on by the army so long afterwards

Our FC ambulance was not sold by Queensland
Ambulance until 1969

Welcome aboard
