Re: T-9 removal

You'll also want to drop the anti-sway bar to provide some much-needed clearance. Just bear in mind, there's a decent chance you'll rip the anti-sway bar bolt threads out of the body when removing them. That'll present a good opportunity to fix those. :) Yes, that's where you need to unload the sus...

Re: T-9 removal

I don't think ramps are gonna do it-- just not high enough to give you the room and leverage you need. It's even a PITA with jackstands. Sameguy makes some good points about pulling them both, but you still need some room to work under there.

Re: My 30 y/o love affair with the XR4Ti, from the US to the Holy Land - Part I

Noam, it's great to see your passion for the marque.. thanks for the pix and the story. I lost my own father back in '91; he was only three years older than I am now. It's always nice to honor and remember him with some of the things he left me, especially his fine set of tools. Whenever I use them,...

Re: Fan switch size

It's 3/4" at the thread (have one in front of me). Can't upload photo of it...??? YMMV Try the Preview function-- it doesn't give any indication that it's loaded onto your message box, but when you preview it, there it is. I've loaded multiple images without realizing it was actually taking the fir...

I'm planning on removing mine around the end of the year or in Jan. I've got a 3.91 LSD and a 3.73 LSD along with a reinforced rear beam.
I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering why you're doing that, and what you're planning to put in its place...

Re: Fan switch size

The stock bung is on the lower intake manifold. That's an option, although it's important to keep those relatively small passageways free of sediment, which one should be doing, anyway. There's also an unused water bung on the left (driver's) side of the engine block. Lower right of large image, "co...

Re: C4 swap

C4 is a four-speed, isn't it? Also, there's lots of info on using an A4LD, even beefing it up with Explorer parts.

Re: Front Wheel Bearings

I like tools, too, but considering that there are ~four bearing changes by someone else built into the price of said tools, and given the infrequency of the job needing to be done, I'd let a good shop do it. The other variable might be how many old cars you keep around. :wink:

Re: Hurts to watch

The one who made that video in the first place has made two updates, the most recent of the two stating that the person with those Cossies worked at a dealership in Sweden and that the cars were customers' cars. Soon, they will be officially determined abandoned and he can officially become the own...

Re: Hurts to watch

Given the market for anything Cosworth, this doesn't make any sense.
