Re: LF: Parts vendors in here please.

My favorite quote that I've heard with regard to certain brackets is "Ford is so cheap, that bracket really has to be there for a good reason." I can't shoot holes in that argument. My favorite quote from a forum post has to be the one where the guy said "First thing I do when I get a new XR is cut...

Re: Wheel bearings..XR and Scorpio (and Cosworth)

Grayson handles the wheel bearings, but he's a flexible and reasonable guy. Shoot a note to sales@mc2racing.com and the process can begin!

Re: Low Coolant Temp while Cruising?

It's very common for the thermostats to leak. This is one place where the Motorcraft part really does seem to do a better job than the after-market thermostats. The description of the problem says the thermostat is unable to regulate the temperature. This must be happening because it's not working ...

Re: WTB: Rear Seat Back Pivot Bolts

So many factory hardware pieces. I've kept an binned I've got some hardware from the half a dozen cars I've parted, but apparently I don't have everything I need. I think Ray's got what I need for the pivot bolts but I'm probably going to be looking for some soft goods soon (whatever that means). I...

WTB: Rear Seat Back Pivot Bolts

All, I'm putting some bits back in my XR4Ti and I can't seem to put my hands on the pivot bolts that hold the outer seat back brackets to the chassis. I have the bracket. I have the four #3 Phillips screws (two per side) that hold the bracket to the seat back. I don't have the two pivot bolts (the o...

Bah. Even the shell is a good starting point given the permanent work done to it. I'll wait until you get the flares done though. Thanks.

Is there a claimer rule on that? I might be willing to exercise the claimer rule if there is.

Re: neg. rear camber with all stock parts.

Many of us would be fully satisfied with the "old" version [^^] if it were still available... Well, it might make you feel better to know that the new version is like the old version, except it's new. And different. If you want a hint at how similar/different they are, this video provides a hint or...

Re: The Bench

Did I see an indexer in there at one point? Or was it a full 4th? No, that's an semi-integrated lathe. It's a 7x12 Seig C2 that has a lathe spindle position output that plugs into the machine controller so it knows the spindle position and can therefore run threading operations. The lathe is low on...
