WVa Parts Picking

I have been posting this on Facebook and didn't think of putting it on the forum, at least until I was reminded about it. I have had a lot of response from the Facebook group, and for those who so not do Facebook here is what is going on. On Saturday, Nov, 17, 2018, in the hills of WV, there are two...

WTB center stop light mounting housing

I am in need of the center stop light housing that bolts onto the spoiler and that the lens assy. bolts into for a '87 bi-wing. The bolts in mine are so rusted, when I tried to unscrew them, it broke the threaded inserts from the housing, and cracked the housing, and the screws just turn, tried cutt...

Re: Random stalling

My car stalls when it is fully warmed up. Just as the electric fan kicks on, it draws so much power it just cuts the power for a second or two, but it's enough time to interrupt the electrical system that it shuts off the engine. Car has 181,00+ miles on it and the electric fan is probably getting a...

Re: Differential leak

I was not sure about the oil for the differential, I'll check it out.

There is no gasket, that is from the factory, just a sealer of some kind, I was considering on making a gasket.

Thanks,

Re: Differential leak

Update. Found that my differential is not leaking. I can't believe the stupid stuff that people do, you just have to read it to believe it. Got the back cover plate off, lots of differential oil came out, not bad for a car that has 180,000 plus miles on it. I could tell from the oil level from the i...

Re: Differential leak

It's probably the stub shaft seal inside the differential. It's not hard to change but its not really easy. Remove the cv axle remove the diff back cover (the oil will drain out, it's probably due to be changed anyway) then inside the diff there is a big c clip that retains the stub shaft, remove t...

Differential leak

Doing some repair work on some water leakage into the trunk, I had to remove the fuel tank and decided to do some upgrades. Install a new differential mount and new fuel pump both from MC2 Racing and discovered the the right (passenger) side of the differential was drenched with oil/grease around th...

Re: New, Just Bought an 87 Xr from one of you

Welcome to the group. And we are almost neighbors, I live just north of Hagerstown, MD on the PA side. I had a problem with the fuel pump not running and one of several things I had a problem with was the ignition switch, the electrical part of switch not the mechanical part. The car would turn over...

Re: Tubocharger rebuilding

DO NOT USE www.gpopshop.com. The "locknut for the shaft" that they use in their rebuilds, and also put in the rebuild kits are NOT a LOCKNUT. It is just a standard regular nut that you purchase in any hardware stop. I got a kit, had another club member show me how to to it, followed their instructio...

Re: XR Failed Emissions-- First Time Evar, For Me

Maybe someone else knows a little more about this. I live in South Central PA and I just happen to live in one of the counties that does not yet require emissions test. Some years back when the State started enforcing emissions tests in nearby counties, some of the alcohol fuel race car drivers knew...

Re: Merkur parts catalog

www.merkurdepot.com had a "Merkur Parts Master List CD" that they had on sale last month for about $5.00, but I could not locate it on their Web site, I had just sent a message to them to ask about the CD, if it was still available, and it is. I ordered a CD.
