I agree about the parts situation, it appears to have gotten better over the last 10-15 years.
Its a Merkur co-op in 2020. The handful of Merkur specific vendors still here work more with each other, less as competing vendors.
Happily here to be part of it. :cheers

Camless heads seem like a legit game changer for the IC engine. Infinite cam timing...all the time...anytime. :cheers

Re: Looking for advice for top end build and where to spend my money

The walbro fuel pump upgrade before any other fuel system upgrades. The car will be happy with the walbro at stock power levels and big power levels, so it should be near the top of the list. It won't 'hurt' anything if you do it right now, and you're prepping for the support of more power in the fu...

Re: Cam timing with an adjustable gear

Sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. The gears usually have a 0° mark to bring them back to where the stock cam gear would normally be. Or if there are just a bunch of unmarked lines on the gear it is most likely the mark in the center. If there is nothing at all on the gear then I would try to...

Re: Source for replacement head

How common is head cracking really on these engines? So common you could go out and pull the head off of your perfectly running XR, take it to the machine shop and they will find tiny cracks the closer you get to the exhaust valve area. Its tough to find one with zero cracks, but its easy to find a...

Re: Stock Scorpio 5-speed?

It was a T9 in the 5spd Scorpio. 1989 model year only. No 5spd for the US in 1988. The most commonly passed around rumor I've heard repeated multiple times is that there were 200 5spd cars. That website thinks there are some 1990 model year Merkurs, too. :BS There were 1990 MY Scorpios. They just w...
