Re: a4ld won't shift into overdrive

I haven't needed to try it but I think the OEM switch is adjustable. Under the plastic cap is a hex head bolt which can be turned right/left.

Re: RockAuto Closeout Items

Seriously, there were carburetor chokes on XR's? I don't recall ever seeing that on any of the XR's I've had. Then again, they were all CA cars. No carb chokes on XR4Ti, just a massive amount of sarcasm on this thread. (And questioning anyone's catalog accuracy thats lists a carb choke for XR4Ti) W...

Re: Brake issues post Scorpio booster swap

OK, so not a simple swap. Did you have to machine the distribution block because of some quirk in the Scorpio design that wouldn't hook up with the XR's brake connectors, or was it a necessary part of streamlining the whole unit? The aluminum block I've got here is in place of the original ABS sole...

Re: Brake issues post Scorpio booster swap

Hard pedal from Day One indicates many possibilities (pump doesn't run, accumulator has failed, pressure switch has failed, relay has failed, pump itself doesn't build pressure), but the obvious first is if you wired it correctly.

Re: RockAuto Closeout Items

True story. Years and years ago I packed family into my 1966 Rambler Cross-Country 6 cylinder carbureted automatic and headed up into Pennsylvania westward on the turnpike towards Minnesota for Christmas. Weather was just mild wintry initially but somewhere in the western PA mountains towards Ohio i...

The downside of combining if not conflating multiple issues in one paragraph.

Re: RockAuto Closeout Items

it's not an assumption, it's fact. Rockauto removes it from your cart when you enter your shipping address because CA prop 65. Here is their response to me when I attempted to purchase a closeout fuel pump We're unable to ship this closeout part to California since it is also a "Private Label Pkg" ...

Re: Scorpio crankshaft position sensor

Should only do hand wash. Car wash motorized brushes leave micro scratches and swirls in the clear coat. <----- Requires effort to remove and restore to "nice."

Forewarned.

Re: Different Accelerator Cables - T-9 Vs. A4LD

The al4d lockdown is solenoid actuated by electrical signal via the two small wire (so no cable actuation). The T9 trans has no electrical kick down feature, so that sensor/switch on the al4d isn't needed. I'm guessing but I assume the al4d car accelerator pedal return spring may be closer to/on the...
