Re: Remember the Saab Sonett?

German built Ford V4 engines in them seem downright normal compared to the 2 stroke 3 cylinder engine they replaced :bounce

The yellow Saab Sonnet...I think I know who's that was (sold about 15 years ago in the same Akron-Canton area).

After seeing some stangs sell at Mecum this year for big big bucks guess this was a bargain.

Ford Motorsport 83-86 T Bird Turbo Coupe - I swore there was a version nearly identicical version for early Mustang GT Turbo (Not SVO).
I have not seen one of these Turbo Coupe kits in 10-15 years unfortuantely

Re: SPAX springs part numbers

2wd Cosworth have a taller knuckle, and shorter strut and spring, so those aren't going to work unless you want to swap matching Cosworth parts at the same time.

The sapphire 4x4 ones will not fit and the Sierra wagon/estate ones would have totally different rear springs.

Re: RockAuto Closeout Items

Seriously, there were carburetor chokes on XR's? I don't recall ever seeing that on any of the XR's I've had. Then again, they were all CA cars. No carb chokes on XR4Ti, just a massive amount of sarcasm on this thread. (And questioning anyone's catalog accuracy thats lists a carb choke for XR4Ti)

What FMS front mount intercooler?
If memory serves correct... there was a FMS intercooler for the 83-86 Thunderbird and the 83-86 Mustang GT turbo.
No FMS front mount intercooler for the XR4Ti.

Re: RockAuto Closeout Items

1985 was the last year for carb, 1986 was the first year for EFI, same as the Mustang... My neighbor told me he thinks someone probably swapped an 85 motor into this 86 because the 85s had hotter cams. You guys are right I should probably try to find an original Motorcraft choke pull for it. That a...

Re: RockAuto Closeout Items

IIRC it goes in the false bulkhead area behind the heater control valve. You have to be sure to drape some wiring and a vacuum hose across it in order for it to work properly. It may be useful to pack the area with expanding foam to keep it from rattling around. Should I change the Carburetor Choke...

Re: Fuel Pump Question

As mentioned if it should prime for a few seconds and stop. If the fuel pump runs constantly in the II position then the relay is stuck. Quick easy free troubleshooting - find one the same color in the fuse box and swap it out and see what happens. Take something non-essenital for the swap out test ...
