New product lines this week are these Distributor Tune-Up Kits now available for Ford Long 6 Cylinder, V8 Autolite & and Twin Point systems.
We’re now making our own Toploader Gasket & Seal Kits with Aussie manufactured gaskets like the originals. Includes Input Shaft Retainer, Inspection Cover & Extension Housing Gaskets, Input Shaft & Extension Housing Seal (with Dust Boot) and Selector Lever O-Rings. Note the extension seal supplied suits 28 spline applications but we also have 31 spline available on request!
We are still open and trading! With so much uncertainty at the moment we thought we’d confirm that we are still taking and processing online orders via eBay & website and although we do love a chat we obviously prefer if you give us a call for inquiries and to ready goods for pick-up to reduce contact time in store. With well over 6000 lines of stock, if you can’t find it on our site, please don’t hesitate to call us on (08) 8326 0427.
If at any stage this or the law changes (as far as the showroom being open to public) we will notify you on all our media outlets. We do not foresee any impacts on ordering online in the near future.
We appreciate your business and we’re here to help you in these unprecedented times. Stay safe, stay at home (and work on your beasts)!
Adding to our list of OE style replacement looms for our Aussie Falcons, we now have a full replacement Number/License Plate Looms for XR-XC Ford Falcons. Includes correct style dual terminal globe holder, wire lengths and crimped/soldered terminals.
Available online or in store today.
Also available as a complete kit with bracket and attaching screws for XR-XY Falcon. (XA-XC will be available shortly!)
As we continue to move forwards in our mission to make brand new, off the shelf replacement wiring looms for early Ford Falcon models, we are happy to announce a new release of sub-looms now available to purchase.
These are reproduced from original wiring, built as close as possible to colour, termination and finish of the original samples. All of our terminations are crimped and soldered for durability, and while some are plug and play, most of these will require threading through your firewall grommet if replacing in situ.
All of these looms are designed to replace old, damaged or rusted wiring in your Falcon and we have more sub-looms coming in the near future with our end of year aim to have 100% brand new off-the-shelf OE replacement looms that are as close to the originals as you can get!
We’re now stocking Tar Toppers that give your car that vintage appearance whilst allowing the use of modern Group 24 batteries.
Stocked in two styles, Red Caps that suit 1960’s & Early 1970’s Fords, plus Yellow Caps generally found on early GM vehicles.
Made from durable ABS and each has 8 1/4″ (Centre to Centre) Pole Holes.
We’re proud to be supporting the 2019 Falcon GT Nationals as naming rights sponsors….this means you have less than 12 months to go, so if you need any new parts (or any last minute work done via sister business Rodney Plowman Restorations) to your GT, you better contact us or book your beast in soon!
One of the biggest benefits of being the parts division of a restoration company is the fact we can use & modify our products in situ, giving us immediate feedback on products we develop and manufacture in house.
An example of this is our LED dash light replacement kits, which have had an amazing response. We’re often asked however, why we do not include replacement clock globes in our XW-XY & XA/XB kits and this is due to the poor design of the VDO clock itself (early XW Clocks with the pigtail can purchase our LED Clock Globe already).
As we all know, with a standard globe fitted, illumination is almost non-existent and upgrading this to an LED emits a little bit more light, however the output is still limited. So we did some R&D and designed a standoff and pigtail that made upgrading to an LED worthwhile. Manufactured in-house these stand-offs are designed to replace the original globe holder and are supplied with a green LED globe pre-fitted.
Simply undo the two nuts that hold the original holder in place and switch the holder to the new stand-off. As you can see from the photos (standard globe left, stand-off right), the results are chalk and cheese!
These units have been tried and tested for the last few months in-house and will be available in the coming weeks 🙂
We have a position available for panel beater/coach builder/sheet metal fabricator at our sister on-site business Rodney Plowman Restorations.
