3 Scorpios var cond white and (2) black in WA state. $1k

Re: getting back into the XR, replacement WGA problem

Do you have a non-stock WGA? One with a threaded/adjustable length rod? X2. If it's adjustable, set it one turn looser and test. You can boost creep with a free-flowing exhaust compared to stock, but I haven't seen that problem on the XR. I have on Scoobies and DSM's. Will check that out, thanks!

they do have it in a lower class on the totem pole but not the lowest one. you cant modify the cars, but its in the same class as a 69 z28 and a hemi cuda and a gmc syclone and the like. you can only choose from white, black or moonstone but you can do a custom paintjob, not to the extent of forza b...

no fuel

well when i turn the key i cant hear the pump prime but when i drop it and put power to it bya a separate battery it primes. maybe the ecu? ive got 3 auto ecu's sitting here but neither of them have yielded any success so i was thinking a wire or something.
