Abstract: The existence of a cross-section is proved for some nonorientable $ 4$-manifolds with a $ {T^2}$-action. Two $ 4$-manifolds with a $ {T^2}$-action, which have the same previously known invariants, are constructed. By using a new homotopy invariant, they are proved to be homotopy inequivalent. Finally a stable diffeomorphism theorem is proved.
