Ford Falcon Service Manual – PDF Download
Below please find a selection of ford falcon service manual for all models of Falcon from 1972-2005.
The XK was the first Falcon sold in Australia in September 1960. It was initially offered only as a four-door sedan, in both Falcon and Falcon Deluxe trim levels. The station wagon was added to the range in November the same year. In May 1961, a utility and a panel van were added to the range. The body styles were officially designated as the Falcon Utility and the Falcon Sedan Delivery.
The Falcon was the first serious competitor to Holden, and became an immediate success. Sales were also helped by the Holden FB series being considered boring and dated in comparison.
Unfortunately, before long, complaints about the durability of the XK on rough Australian outback roads came rolling in. These complaints were mainly due to the front ball joints collapsing and the adjusting shims dropping out of the front suspension. It was mainly due to these faults that the Falcon inherited the not-so-nice nick-name Foul Can.
Ford Australia introduced some local design changes to the new XL in early 1962. One of these changes was a heavier suspension system with components from the Fairlane. The appearance also took on the new Thunderbird roofline and was given the slogan ‘Trim, Taut, Terrific’.
Regardless of the improvements, the Falcon was still widely perceived to be unsuitable for Australian conditions and sales slowed. Ford stuck with the Falcon and as durability and reliability improved, sales gradually increased over the following years.
