    Ford has been part of my family for many years, the first one I can remember was a Cortina Ghia in 1979. My dad bought brand new Hilux 4x4 in 1979 too but it was very underpowered for towing his ski boat. Back in the 80's I can remember trips to St Lucia, my mom towing the caravan with the Cortina Ghia 3.0l and me and my dad in the Toyota towing the boat. My mom use to wait in Pongola for us to catch up.

    My dad sold the Toyota and bought a 3.0l Cortina bakkie and from there we learned how to upgrade and make 3.0l engines more powerfull without compromising it durability.

    From Cortina it was a twin Turbo Ford Courier 4x4(1991 model with no powersteering and only a 97kw downrated engine hence the turbo's) This was a good combination and only the diff could not keep up with the power increase. It was later changed and bearings replaced with one way bearings. Top speed was about 240km/h and kept up from standstill to 240km/h with a XR8.


    The next one was a highly customised F series (76 model) with a 351 cleveland V8 and plenty of chrome followed by a Ranchero with a 302 windsor V8.

    The 2.5 turbo diesel Ranger 4x4 was next but we found them a little to electronic for Africa. Towing a two ton Jetboat was very easy though and I would say out of all the Ford's it is the best for towing.

    Back to Ford Courier again. The old Courier is still like Ford claimed 'industructable'. The 1991 model did over a million kilo's when we sold it and was replaced by a second hand doublecab 4x4 diesel which is still up in Africa transporting my Safari Clients.

    I followed my dads footsteps in customising fords and this is the result from a bakkie I bought and upgraded.

    85 Ford Cortina
    3.4l v6 with 3.0l heads
    Cressida valves
    276 cam
    Forged Pistons
    Courier 4x4 Gearbox (Best Gearbox ever made)
    Toyota front diff
    Original back Diff casing (internals replaced)
    Lazer cut chassis
    Double front shocks
    33x12.50x15 BF Goodrich Tyres
    Stabiliser on rear diff connected to the chassis
    All engine and gearbox mountings custom made.

    The vehicle was in Mozambique (Pemba) for 6 months and did nearly 8000 km which includes hunting on a concession. Not one single mechanical failure except for keys that got lost.

    Performance:

    I do not like racing or speeding with vehicles but this is what I found

    *I beat a 4.0l ranger from stopstreet to stopstreet by about two car lenghts.

    *I tried a topspeed run once on the highway and got to 175km/h in fourth gear on my gps.


    Fuel consumtion? Good news..... about 12km/l on open road @ 120-140km/h

    Nou ja, ek en my Fordjie is beide splinter nuut hier op die forum.
    Had hom, die Fordjie, op die dyno vandag en wil graag weet wat die syfers nou eintlik moet wees krag gewys?
    Sien, wat hier op die papiere staan maak ek nie te veel van uit nie, daarom die vrae. Hier is wat daar staan, blykbaar op die agterwiele gemeet:
    Before: 95KW
    After: 117 KW

    Before: 380 Nm
    After: 470Nm

    Hoe akkuraat is die diesel meter? Ek het nou so 550 km gery en die ding wys half. Moet ek opgewonde raak?
    By voorbaat dank vir julle uitgesprokenheid.

    Ek sou baie opgewonde raak - myne wys half op 420km, dan het ek nog so 250km oor...
    117KW en 470NM op die wiele is verskriklik baie

    O! Ek lees die prentjies op die mure en sien veel groter getalle, seker maar op die vliegwiel gemeet?
    Die mannetjie wat die dyno gedoen het sę toe dit is nogal een van die sterkste wat hy nog gesien het. Maar jy weet mos hoe dit gaan, die manne sal jou enige iets vertel wat jy wil hoor!
    Lat ek by sę, ek ry regtag soos 'n wit mens. Met die speedo cruise wat Independent vir my ingesit het is dit darem net 'n plesier om te ry!
    Dankie vir die terugvoer Christo.

    After the dyno & calibration mine went to 113kw, the fuel guage is something else, 3 rangers & all different. I get around 700km to a tank (std tank) and 300km from half to empty. I get 1200km if I fill the longrange tank as well (total 140l).

    Shweet, so it looks like the Fordjie is more or less in the ballpark. I must say, I am really enjoying it so far, however it is early days.
    I am turning in now, early day tomorrow.
    You guys have a good one.

    LOL...before means nothing in the dyno world....it's that after and gain you looking at not total peak power/torque.

    Looking at what you have written, the torque seems on par with the gains made on the 3.0TDI, the KW is a bit high but hey, like I said before, depends how the "tuner" set the motor up and that is anyone's guess.

    BUT, I hope you have an EGT fitted...with such large gains, you are GOING to run hotter.

    At that kw I assume a 3.0TDI....?

    My last 5 tanks where, 9.2, 9.4, 9.4, 9.2, 8.2 and heading for another sub 9l/100km...I LOVE my Ranger. On my company fuel card my 2.5TDI avg was 12l/100km over two years, so far my 3.0 is at 10/100km...same driving style...8)8)

    I saw over 900km on 73L...sweeet

    Hi Scrat, Yes 3.0 TDci.
    I haven't noticed any change in temp yet. I must add that I drive very conservatively.
    First tank including the dyno run i got 10.98km/l.
    I will fit one of those EGT thingy's shortly.
    So far I have gone 500km and the needle is between 3/4 and 1/2. A bit closer to 1/2 I would say. It seems I will get in the region of 12km/l.

    Ye I LOVE the drop in fuel comsumption compared to the 2.5 4x4 I had...

    You won't notice any temp change, only when it's to late....that is why the egt is so important. I'm going to fit one at a later stage anyway, then do the chip and hook up my radiator as well into the same unit.

    Smile 2L ohc FORD HARVARD [JEEP] with Diff-lock

    I have recently bought myself a 'toy'. It is a locally manufactured Harvard...loaded with 2L Ford MUSCLE!!
    They were made in Pinetown KZN back in the 80's
    They brought out the 3l V6 4X4, the 2L ohc With Diff-lock and the STD 2wd 1600cc
    The chassis were manufactured and hot dip galvanzied
    They then dropped in reconditioned Ford Motors/gearboxes, diffs and suspensions.
    What a loverly vehicle..This the second one I have owned and will never sell again.
    Recently I went out with the 4x4 boys, and after seeing a Colt double cab 4x4 stuck in deep sand at a quarry...I decided to give the very same route a go...Yahoooo...no diff-lock, just dropped the back tyres to around 100kpa ...I shot through the section ...up the steep bank and out. Much applause...
    Great vehicles...LOCAL IS LEKKER
