Re: Coolant Temperature Sender

Yes, different color coded senders for the different gauge clusters. More era-specific than temp specific, but the "wrong" one will give an inaccurate reading. Once Ford stopped calling it Granada Scorpio and it was just known as "Ford Scorpio" it had this cluster (and a different temp sender): http...

I don't think I've ever seen a complete list of what is needed to go from an auto to a manual.

Re: WTB - Xr4Ti windshield wiper arm / with aerofoil

Re: Sleeping Beauty .. Parked at 2002 ... where should I start?!

Third step: don't touch anything else, intead just drive and enjoy it. Fourth step: By a second one and have your way with it. Seri...

Re: Coolant Temperature Sender

Bought 2 from Latvia, cost about $19 including shipping. Took a couple weeks. Haven't had a chance to install, but they look well made. I got mine from Latvia also. I also had not had a chance to install. Which ones (what color ring) did you guys get from Latvia? The color ring is relative to the t...

I'm not recognizing that part at all. Proceed like you didn't find it. :mrgreen:

Maybe its a piece from the brake light switch by the pedal?
Or the cruise switch by the pedal? (...if it has cruise control)

Re: Double Black 88 W/C4 and every upgrade

Has to be the first XR I've seen offered for sale with a C4 in it.
Flipping through your photos, your C4 swap is much more refined than mine :cheers
