Hagarty Merkur Article published

Check out the article on the Merkur XR4Ti by Hagarty - the collector car insurance people. I'm screwed - it says I was racing my Merkur at Watkins Glen - a violation of the insurance rules. It was a driving school and anyway at the time I wasn't insured by Hagarty! Good coverage for these cars, Paul

Re: Battery replacement

OK - just to close out this question, I ended up with another Bosch battery and got a pro-rated discount off the new one since it is warrantied for 96 months - 8 years! Thanks for all the suggestions but I wanted one that fit exactly as the OEM one did with the lip and hold-down clamp and the top st...

Battery replacement

The last couple of batteries I have had were Bosch Group 47. Part number 47-600B. They fit well and look good under the hood. Bosch have discontinued that battery so I am looking for suggestions. The Bosch 96R-590B seems like it will fit although it doesn’t have the bottom hold-down ‘lip’ like the s...

Re: Speed control diagnosis

Yes I realize that if I hit the cruise control while in neutral, the revs will ramp up and continue to ramp. However if the clutch or brake pedal are touched, or the Speed Control is tourned off, control is regained. If I do not notice the revs building with no accelerator pedal depression, I probab...

Speed control diagnosis

The speed control on my 5 speed XR hasn't been working for the past 2-3 years and I decided on the trip home from Carlisle to fix it. I ran through the many pages of step by step tests in the manual. Checking the vacuum, the dump valves, grounds, switch, throttle actuator etc. All tests pass. I also...
