Re: XR4Ti Fallacy Thread

XRs are unreliable. XRs are hard to work on. XRs are very difficult to find parts for.

Re: Weird windshield wiper behaviour.

We appreciate you posting what worked for you. Who knows? You might help someone else with the same problem 14 years from now. Or 14 days. Either way, thanks for adding to the knowledge base. Exactly right. I suspect it just might help someone, because I wasn't the first and I won't be the last to ...

Re:

Well, after not getting any replies here or elsewhere, and only finding this and one other thread on TF.org, I've fixed it. And the winner is: while on the subject of wipers, i've had two XRs with wipers that simply quit working. On both cars, I removed the wiper motor (this works by the way or eith...

Re: Weird windshield wiper behaviour.

First, please forgive me reviving a 14 year old thread. Second, forgive my long absence from the forum. Third, was there ever a proper diagnosis and/or solution found for this? Has anyone else had a similar problem with their wipers and found a solution? My wipers are displaying very similar behavio...

Re: Fuel Pressure Damper Delete

I deleted it on both my XRs. Lots of folks do (should!). I daily drove my white '89 for 5 years with it removed with no issues.. In fact, I couldn't figure out why my black '89 wouldn't start and stay idling, even after going through EVERYTHING else in the system. Deleted the damper and it ran and i...

Re: florida merkur owners

BTW, there is an excellent (serious!) karting track local called Andersen Racepark. They have a full schedule of events and have rentals, offer licensing, etc. Something to consider if you're looking for a racing fix until you have time to make it to an auto-x or track day.

Re: florida merkur owners

Hey guys, I'm thinking of moving to to the Sarasota area for at least half the year(jan-jun). Are there any track or autox events local to the area? It seems any major track is at least two hours away. drivefast.org events are almost 2 hours away on the north side of tampa. Doesn't seem like rallyx...

Re: focus recaro seats

In the STs, you had the ST1 - ST2 - ST3 packages. All seats were Recaro made. The difference was whether or not they were skinned in leather and had the ability to be heated (ST3). Actually, ST1 do not get Recaros in the US. They are the same as the Focus sport/Platinum seats in an ST specific clot...

Re: XR4Ti Change Delineation Thread

Is there any resource that has a breakdown of XR or Scorpio production based on exterior color/interior color combinations? Is there a resource for original build sheets or invoices (like the Eminger invoices for classic Mustangs)? I wonder if either Karmann or Ford might still have those...

I'm down in Sarasota too... about half a mile from BAT, though I've bought more stuff from blugg over the years.
