Re: 1988 Merkur XR4TI FOR SALE

Sounds like a really nice car! Good luck with the sale.
If the radio turns on but there is no sound it is most likely the small fuse in the back of the amplifier that resides under the radio.

FYI I have brand new OEM window switch sets on hand if you want to get the windows back to 100%

Is the upper intake shortened or changed?
You have to chop out about 1" of the intake when you cut it to rotate it on the flange. If you don't shorten it the hood on an XR4Ti won't shut. :oops:

Re: New Here- Planning on buying an XR4Ti soon!

Parts for an XR4Ti are easier to find now than they were 10 years ago - its true!
Vendors have been reproducing parts that were previously unavailable. Some are also rebuilding parts to "better than new spec" once supplies of in-demand parts started to thin out.

Re: WTB. Bi-plane XR spoiler

I believe the 87.5 reference would be for the entire hatch as it may have the radio antenna integrated in the glass (like your 88 does), whereas 85-87 have an external radio antenna. The glass on 88-89 is slightly wider leaving less metal on the side for the bi wing to mount, thats whey many suggest...

Is it a figment of my imagination or did you used to do silicone top hoses as well?

Re: looking for short block rebuild recommendations

Rapdio actually has some nice engine rebuild stuff, Esslinger and Racer Walsh are always good options.
Just make sure you go through a trusted 2.3T supplier as local engine shops seem to love to supply and/or rebuild our 2.3T with incorrect
Hypereutectic pistons instead of forged.
