2 XR4Ti projects

Two Projects for sale with a bunch of parts. Red one runs but is ugly https://youtu.be/JmhcmJd4tMc Black one has no drivetrain installed but body is nice. https://youtu.be/Bpol2AWik1s I think it has a little dent somewhere. The existing interior of the black one sucks but I have a set of cloth seats...

Re: Shaky

yeah thanks maybe it is the inner tie rod ends
The tires had been sitting which might make it worse but I had this problem before I parked it. It’s weird like it’s worse under load like going uphill. I checked the guibo and it’s ok too.

Re: Gas

check at the parts store. just take the line with you to compare. they have assorted sizes. Too funny! I got a couple of fittings that look a little different, some tubing to bend in boiling water, and a "good luck" from the parts guy. He also said "It's too bad they came up with dumb ideas like th...

Re: Gas

I need a new line from the fuel filter to the fuel pump. Does anyone have a merkur graveyard that wants to part with one? I could try to make one but I'm not sure about bending the nylon this looks like it's factory bent. I can get a 90 new but then there is another 90 after that on each end. The fi...

Re: Gas

It was leaking at the outlet of the high pressure pump. There is rust on the outlet. I got the inlet off ok but I had a hard time with the outlet. Finally it came off but a white plastic piece with two o rings is stuck on the pump outlet. the black potion of the connector is intact. Usually when I r...

Re: Gas

Humpty Dumpty is leaking gasoline somewhere in the back. To those of you who have experienced this, what did you end up replacing? Thanks.

Humpty Dumpty

I drove Humpty Dumpty to work today. I had been losing interest for quite some time, but just this weekend I replaced a rotor and there is much less shaking.

Now, if I could get the thing to stop blowing cold air on my feet - I need a fan motor and maybe a heater core. Any tips?

Thanks.

Re: RIP Humpty Dumpty

Hmmm. I can't stop obsessing over this. Leave it all in black primer? Roll on some rustoleum? Or $500 for orange peel? Save time and money for the 86... My son Ben who is 4 is already telling me about the 86 "we have to get my car fixed ...pull it out of here and clean out the spider webs ...go to t...
