Re: 85 XR4Ti near Wichita KS (automatic) and one in Montana

I haven’t seen it in person, but spent a few hours talking with the current owner. He lives south of Wichita, but was in the neighborhood and stopped by. He’s a neat guy with a real passion for the Euro Fords. Currently he has a lot of cars and projects and would like to find a good home for the car...

Re: Need value help 1985 XR4TI

Gavin, First off, hopefully they are just uninformed, not delusional. Assume the tank will need to be flushed, and fuel lines purged. Coolant and oil flushed and changed. Transmission will need servicing, possibly pulled and resealed if an automatic. Did the car run before being parked? With the amo...

Re: Diff Cover Bolts

I am an A & P, IA, and director of maintenance for an aircraft maintenance and modification shop in Wichita, KS with 25 + years in military and civilian aircraft. There is nothing particularly exotic about what was used in any of these cars.

Re: Diff Cover Bolts

Aircraft hardware is rarely metric. Unless it is a truly serious corrosion issue, try a penetrating oil called AeroKroil made by Kano. Make sure it gets under the head, and you don’t need to drown it. Let it work, and before attempting to break the torque on the fastener, give them a couple taps. Th...

Rapido Open?

Tried calling Russ several times on several dates recently, any idea if Rapido is open or shut down? Looking for some obscure parts they might still have, Thanks.

Quaife LSD conversion

All, I would truly appreciate feedback from any community members with first hand experience with the Quaife LSD's. What are the likes/ or dislikes? Currently, I have the Cosworth 7.5, but would like a beefier bolt in option in lieu of the 8.8 and Toyota diff. I did search the threads but didn't see...

Private party car sale using escrow agent?

Would value any and all recommendations for escrow agent for a domestic sale (Continental U.S.). I am selling the vehicle, and need to have an option to offer the buyer to protect both parties.

Thanks,

Re: XR4 Brakes

Larry,

Hi, it's Christophe. Any way to get a stethoscope up near the booster on the firewall and press brakes? Seeing any fluctuation in vacuum? Feel free to give me a call on my old cell # if you want to talk it through.
