Spot of Luck

Post by ZA Perana » Sat 01 Sep 2007, 13:02

Been looking for a decent workshop manual that deals with 302W engines and toploaders and by chance I found this..."Falcon/Fairlane 1966-1972, Models: Falcon XR, XT, XW, XY, 500, Futura, Fairmont and Fairlane ZD Series" :D

Great manual with a variety of specs and just what I was looking for and the price...R30.. :mrgreen:

Great find ZA, and good subject too I think. If we know who’s got what, it could really be of value to other forum members as well.
The one I’ve got is not the one that Daan refers to, but has helped me in the past.

By the way, good to hear from you again. :D You were quiet for while.

That gregorys one is very usefull. I got a photo copied version from the owner of my first GT, and have used it a lot. I imported the original Ford factory manual from AUS a while ago, thats the bible for fairmonts. I think thats the one you are talking about Daan.

Here is a picture of the one I imported
