Welcome aboard natho.

We need as many Aussies as possible to share there experiences, seeing as how the majority of Ford Truck were made with the steering wheel on the wrong side.

Looking forward to seeing some pics of your rig.

Talking

Log In, Click on "Galleries" in the top left hand corner, then "Manage / Create". A new page will open, then click on "Create Album". Fill in all the details and then tell it where your photos are. I could only get two at a time to load, but there may be a trick to that.

Best of luck

Welcome wocker!!!

You sure it needs a new cat? or it could be just your O2 sensor fouling up (check in the windsor forum)
If she is running rich, I would be guessing its the 02 sensor... and if I recall they had the 02 sensor pre cat (could be wrong though)

Actually... hmm... its been AGES since I looked at a Windsor (I was 16 when I last saw one...), they might have two 02 sensors post twin cats, at which point you would be right.

Either way, check with the guys in the Windsor forum, they know thier stuff back the front.

hey wocker,
can't help too much with the windors, ive never really had much of a chance to pull them apart and see what makes em tick!
What i can recommend though is finding, either on ebay or oztion (non-union mexican equivilent ebay) a copy of the Chilton's Vehicle Libary for the F-trucks. I bought one off oztion the other day and its awesome. Its a CD containing service manuals for all the Ford trucks, explorers etc. It goes through everything, Engine, Trans, Brakes, Suspension, Body you name it and its got half decent pictures too. Well worth the $12.50 shipped to my house.
Im just waiting for a camera off a mate to get some photos, then ill post up some pics. Its not in the best of nic, i haven't had much time to work on it recently.
Cheers nath
