Re: Greets + Looking for any info on this old AWIC on my XR

That is a cartech intercooler that was made by a company called CarTech in Dallas, probably around 1990. I bought one from them. Its kind of what got me going down the air water intercooler route. I met the carTech dudes in person in Dallas and talked with them a while. It's design was kind of a com...

Re: Finally getting rid of those nasty, rusty relics, .. dru

I should have been more specific it's the rear passenger footwell and the trunk I had to put some buckets in the car to catch the rain dripping from the roof

Re: Finally getting rid of those nasty, rusty relics, .. dru

:haha that was actually pretty damn funny, ed.

I live about a half mile from the Brazos river, and if it wasn't for our levy, we would have had about 3 feet in my house. High and dry again for us. My merk had about 5" in The rear footwell and spare tire well, tho. I think bad sunroof seals.

Finally getting rid of those nasty, rusty relics, .. drum br

My Merk sat outside for two years, awaiting its temple. Now its complete, and when I went to drive the car into the garage (after Mike Oyler helped me get a key made) the rear drums had seized up on me. I had to really drag race launch my car to break the friction loose in the rear, and it sounded l...

Re: XR two guage A-pillar pod for sale

Ran across this pod in my garage, so its still for sale. Sorry that I never got back to yodagirl49. I apologize for that. I have in on top of my toolbox in a "get rid of it" location, so I won't forget again.

Free 14" BBS rim

I still have one of the BBS rims that came on my 1985 XR when I bought it used in the early 1990's. It had these schweet 14" forged aluminum BBS rims on it, one of which I broke on a giant pothole. I replaced them with some 15" Fitipaldis. I have no idea how common these rims were. In any case, I ca...

Re: I was wondering if any of you would be interested in thi

I don't intend to hijack this thread, but would like to offer up a partially built project. I was literally going thru some boxes in my garage just now, in preparation for getting my XR into the garage of my new house. I have a bunch of built, and partially built aluminum coolant tanks that I had do...

Re: Turbo Turbine housing bolts...

I have sheared off those bolt heads, and then later removed them from the housing. A giant vice grip could either loosen that bolt, or shear it off. Once they are all either removed or broken, Remove the housing then, drill and tap the softened bolts. Those bolts get heat cycled so many times, there...

Need advice on ignition lock and door locks

So.... I bought a new house two years ago. I have been preparing a temple for my car, but the car has literally been in the driveway, unmoved for two years. :oops: We had 9.5" of rain one day a couple weeks ago. I know that the wiper motor does not seal well to the hatch sheetmetal, as I run a cossi...

If I bring it back, I'd like to do it as a blog thing that I could update easily and write about other interests too. I bought a new house last year, and t...

A the long time owner of MerkurXR4Ti.com, I have had some things available forever, and some others I have quit making. I was doing this long before kids, and now my oldest is 14. I had to refund some orders for bolting, since I was out of some bolts. Bolt costs have gone up, and shipping, which I e...
