Re: No cluster lights...

All the fuses look alright but I’m gonna pull that box this weekend and check all the terminals. The cars whole stereo and speakers have been removed before I got it and I’m curious if anything is tied into the cluster or they cut a wrong wire. Prolly gonna pull the dash apart and investigate that a...

Re: No cluster lights...

Both clock bulbs work, one of my interior lights is out and the cigarette lighter lights do not work but I wouldn’t believe they would cause them to not work

No cluster lights...

So, The cluster lights will not come on at all, the brights indicator, turn signal, and battery lights come on and battery light stays on very faintly with headlights on. Dimmer is good and Everything else works and I cannot get these lights to do anything. I’ve even plugged in a spare cluster and h...

Re: First Xr4ti

Hi all, Is it the merkurtech site that has the what to do to buy a used Merk page? It has great advice about what to do to an old car to update it for fluids and checks on what to look for as problems, I seem to recall. Anyone? As a side note on my own '86 car, I am now ready to do the underside su...

Re: First Xr4ti

Pcv should be here next week. Snow hit us this week so will not be driving it too much to see if it wants to keep eating oil. Either way I’m still stoked to own this car

Re: First Xr4ti

Have not had access to a compression tool yet, definitely my plan for this weekend. After running sea foam and an atf flush it’s cleared up a lot of the smoke. Valve cover does leak but not bad enough to raise suspicion. But I am one bulb away from my cluster bulbs working again though :wink:

Re: First Xr4ti

Re: First Xr4ti

So an update on the merkur. Oil consumption is pretty fast on this car, I’ve driven it maybe 80 miles or so and I’ve probably run through two qts of oil. My plans are to rebuild the turbo and replace turbo lines and pcv and later on valve stem seals. I’ve never seen a car burn oil so fast. Is there ...

Odd paint color

Fairly new to the merkur scene but I’m wondering about this paint option I’ve seen. It’s a “triple black” merkur with double gold pin stripes. I can’t find this anywhere on the forum or online and I’ve seen not only one but two cars with this paint job. Was this an actual thing? Both were late model...
