    Hey guys, new Patrol owner here. I'm thinking of swapping my TB42e engine out of my '93 RX GQ for a TD42, and wondering whether it as straight forward as putting the motor in (I'm aware the engine mounts are the same) or if there is more involved to it. Cheers -Tommy

    Hi Guys, I have a 1989 Ford Maverick which has a TB42 Carby. I rebuilt the Carby, put new rotor button, dizzy cap, leads, ignition coil, spark plugs. Everything was running fine until I ran out of fuel (my fault the gauge was not accurate). So I gave the Carby to be cleaned again suspecting dirt...

    So when I start my wagon it seems to not start start unless I give it throttle while turning the key it, shoots a little fuel out the exhaust, then after driving for about say 30 mins it just stalls turns off. Would this be air, fuel or disruption/igtion problem. Thanks

    Hi all, My 1988 TB42 Carby is acting up. It runs fine in LPG but when I switch to petrol it cannot even keep its idle. I was wondering if there’s any good carby mechanics around Victoria (SE suburbs if possible) for me get it serviced/rebuilt. And roughly how much will it cost? thanks a lot...

    I have a 1988 Ford Maverick TB42 Carby. My alternator is gone and I recently purchased an alternator. The battery terminal of the back of the new one is much bigger than the one I originally have. I guess my one is 50A, I cannot connect it since the wire clamp is small to connect to new one. Is...

    Hi all, would just like some opinions on doing an efi conversion vs swapping in a tb42 efi engine. It’s a 1990 auto tb42 carby maverick. The end goal is a turbo tb42 efi, so just wondering what costs and effort would be like for both options. Also going manual would be preferable but not...

    Hi all, I’ve recently purchased a 1990 maverick with a tb42 carby, currently grandpa spec but I intend to go 2 inch lift and 35’s for the bush, keeping 31’s for daily use.
