Re: Tires rubbing

No wings on the outer tie rods that are on the car. I did notice today on the way home from work what sounded like tires rubbing on the inner fenders thru one curve, and it wasn't even near full lock.

Maybe there's something else going on?

Re: Tires rubbing

Re: Parasitic Battery Drain

I assume this demonstrated the wisdom that, in cold weather especially, putting a load on the battery revives its potential to some degree. Commonly the suggested load is turning on the headlights for 30-45-60 seconds before trying to start the engine in zero or lower F temps. The multimeter load i...

Re: Tires rubbing

I dunno, what do they look like? Is that the little "wing"? Will that affect turning radius?

Tires rubbing

Getting ready to drive the XR again, and the last couple times I had her out, I noticed wierd sounds when the steering wheel was cranked thru turns. Apparently my front tires are rubbing on the inner fenders, again. I have Hypercoil front springs from MC2(have to find receipt to remember what I have...

Re: Parasitic Battery Drain

On my Scorpios, I could only leave them for 2 weeks untended(no battery tender, no driving) before the battery would be dead. And usually if it got dead, it was dead-dead. These were Optima red tops even. I never went thru to figure out where my drain was, but I did notice that my XR, or even my wif...

Bulbs- I'm sure we've been down this road...

Is there any brand of LED bulbs that work with the graphic display module for the tail, brake, high mount, etc... ? I need a bulb for the high mount, and I have some arriving tomorrow(old school halogen type), but if there's a brighter LED type that works and fits, and actually is brighter, I wanna ...

Re: Fuel pump, or pumps, or....

I think we have forgotten what fascism actually is. Not that this thread is the place for it, but when UNELECTED people are making "LAW" it is at the least unconstitutional. It may not be fascist, but illegal, and unconstitutional, for sure. And when we're the only county in the state to ...

Re: Fuel pump, or pumps, or....

Where I live they closed the dmv for a short time, and let people drive around with expired tags. When they opened they limited the number of people that could be inside at once, and had everyone else wait outside spaced 6 feet apart. I used the self service (outside) kiosk to get the echeck on my ...

Re: Fuel pump, or pumps, or....

Got the Walbro in. Fuel may or may not have been the issue, but it was a worthwhile, and long overdue upgrade. Instead of using another fuel filter to take up the space vacated by the external pump, I was able to position the lines to connect to the existing fuel filter with minimal fuss. I need to ...

Re: FS 1988 XR4Ti

I'm building mine to drive it, to my taste. If these prices keep going up it justifies to me the $6-20k in body work i expect my need to make her pretty again.

Re: Fuel pump, or pumps, or....

The pressure measurements i gave are with the gauge valve closed. Then open gauge valve and look at volume.

Walbro is on the way from MC2 now. Hope i have it Friday.

Re: Fuel pump, or pumps, or....

In tank filter was replaced in 2107, external filter at eh same time. Fuel pressure testing was done without the external filter to eliminate that as being clogged.

I have a Walbro on order with MC2 now. Hoping I get it by friday...

Re: Ford is making an electric crate motor...

The biggest issue I have with electric cars is there is no infrastructure for them, and I'm not talking about a lack of charging stations, but that is part of it. The big issue is the power grid is not capable of supporting the power we're gonna need. Look at Cali, and now Texas. Blackouts due to fr...
