      Factory manuual says 14.25 imp pints.inc converter

      So 8.5 litres from empty.

      The 3 speed autos are a bw35 so should come up easy enough

      One of the farcebook sites has a pdf of the XP factory manual.

      Ill see if i can find out which one

        Yeah I was thinking 7-8.5 litres. But if it's a service their might be some in converter.

              Probably be 30- 40 from vic falcon club cruising over.

              Last one in nagambie had over 220 early falcons

              Getting more popular... As evidenced by the prices...

                  Ewww.

                  Had a bit of a tinker today. Put it up on jack stands and took off the wheels. First port of call was to flush out the old brake fluid. After a squirt of wd40 all the nipples cracked with no dramas. Back drivers was actually a smidge loose and had been weeping a fraction. Ran thru a bottle and bit, but all fresh now. Also straightened up the brake lines and put some fuel hose over them where they go thru the guards. I then wanted to clean up the front wheel assemblies. I wiped down all the brake dust and crap that had collected, also gave them a hit of black where it was chipped. Did the same to the diff and leaf springs, which had some surface rust coming thru. I rotated the tyres as the fronts had a bit of inner edge wear, rears were like new. I gave the trans and back of sump a good soaking of degreaser.

                  I started to drain the auto and yanked the tail shaft. Shaft was pretty sad and covered in surface rust, so got the steel wool out and rubbed it back to metal. Wiped it down with thinners then hit it with some grey engine enamel. Pan came off easy enough, the cork gasket didn't seem to be doing much, no wonder it was weepy around the edges. Only a tiny bit of clutch material in bottom of pan. The outside was all manky so spent 45mins scrubbing that with steel wool and getting 55 yrs of trans fluid and dirt off it. Wiped it down with thinners and more grey engine enamel.

                  Tail shaft dried first, so faffed about removing the inner snap rings off front uni, then knocked the caps out. Marked the orientation obviously and took pics! The rear one was OK, but just ordered another with extra type f fluid I need to fill it up. Might as well do both. Pan dried then put new cork gasket on with a smear of 3 bond grey sealant on both sides (fucker better not leak). Also swapped out the filter and wiped down the rail with thinners. Then put pan back on. I did notice the sensor on passenger side of gearbox was unplugged further up where it joins the engine loom and both ends just looped into each other. Got a feeling it's the neutral safety switch.

                  Gave the sump a wipe down as I didn't do the sump plug up tight and had the faintest of leaks. At least the underneath isn't looking totally sad now. Only thing now underneath is exhaust has a bit of surface rust where the galvanising is coming off, but no holes visible. I might give that a hit with some paint after a bit of steel wool action.

                  Hopefully tomorrow get the uni's and extra trans fluid. Although 3 days of lockdown, so no rush.

                  To top off my day I got a personal comment from Derek at vice grip garage after watching and commenting on his last video. Must say he was an influence on getting the old girl and switching gears to the slow lane

                      It's probably a little overkill detailing the underside of a 55 yr old car, but it sorta bugged me. Also why I hit exhaust with paint this morning. Lols

                      Mr repco man arrived this morning so knocked in new uni and slid shaft back. Old girl took 8 litres. Despite being careful as can be, I spilled a bit. It still dipped a smudge from drivers side near the filler so hopefully it was just remnants of spill.

                      Plugged in the safety neutral switch but doesn't work, so will put that on order list. While I was in the bay i taped up some of the wiring which showed the wires.

                      Gave the seats a wipe down with vinyl cleaner. Went around the bright work and cleaned it with metal polish. Tried some new "ceramic" quick detailer. Definitely made it very shiny!

                      Also finally plugged the aerial into the head unit in the glove box, instead of janky wire I rigged up to get back from Canberra. Pity we still have lockdown and it's a gorgeous day, perfect for a nice cruise. Will have to wait for the weekend

                        Looking good! I think its definitely worth making the underside super nice, I did the same thing on the 68 impala been doing up last few years.

                        Pretty good of Derek to reply to your YouTube comment, he's a super funny guy on camera. Cracks me up.

                        Hopefully you can get the coupe out later this week

                            Good question. It was already off stands and full of fluid before I could check. I saw on eBay some have 4 prongs and not cheap at $98+ each. Need to suss it out

                              Little fucker is weeping out selector shaft seal on stub on passenger side. Trying some rtv now. Or maybe pack with grease or heat shrink on little stub

                                Got the 2 core radiator back today from radiator shop. Swapped it all over and back to factory look. The new 3 core with thermofan/wiring is for sale

                                Also whilst fluid was dropped I sussed out what was wrong with the heater circuit, no fluid was flowing into the core. Took the passenger side hose off at water pump and blew through the heater core, all good! The valve even worked. Tried to poke something down the water pump nipple, and nope. Lols. All I had to do was to drill it. All easy. Just need to get some coolant tomorrow when shops open again
