Re: Blower Motor resistor option

Sorry for bumping this post, but I finally got my XR back up and running, but my blower motor does not seem to be functioning. I'm not sure if it's due to the resistor or a bad connection, but I'm hoping that if it's the resistor I can just replace it with this option. Is there anything else I can ...

Re: Anyone like their Chromebook?

This morning trouble logging into Paypal. Keeps sending me back after I enter password. Then It brings up a (reCAPTCHA checkbox widget) and that also gives me trouble when I try to click verify. So time to start using the new chromebook. This one (Acer) says mfg date 5-29-2013 on the bottom, and I b...

Low mileage daily?

Is it stupid to look at this craigslist ad and say "I should get this!"

Driveway 45 years later

One of those brisk yet sunny Autumn days. Crimson King Maple dropping leaves yesterday the same as it did 45 years ago. My older brother is 3 in this picture, now he's 48. If the nearly new e30 or the nearly new Karmann Ghia was in the old picture that would have been fine with me, but I was happy t...

After you cut the hole you can access the latch assembly.

Re: "Frozen" Rear Door Latch

My Mom told me the window was broken on her Subaru and wouldn't go up and down on passenger side. I pressed the little child lock button on the master power lock switch. In this particular case you will have to cut a hole in the side of the door.

Re: Did you like the Wheeler Dealers XR episode?

It looks like it steps down quite a bit from the down pipe into the cat. But I don't know what the car should look like stock. Here is a larger downpipe (2.5 I'd guess) into an aftermarket cat into a borla 2.5 cat back. Did they make a merkur specific aftermarket cat to go between the 2.5 inch rapid...

Re: Did you like the Wheeler Dealers XR episode?

I think the car could have well had some rapido stuff of it (like 2.5 downpipe) for example. Maybe someone else can chime in if they believe the cat was aftermarket. I can say that was not the rapido intercooler. Who knows if it had the rapido stickered pe (85.5-86svo) computer in there and big vam ...

Re: 2.3t for 5.0w swap. Anyone interested?

Now I understand, you want to trade engines with another person. Maybe someone out there has an svo that needs a long block, and a lose 5.0 or 5.0 donor car parked. Not a ton of turbo 2.3 engines available so I guess it's possible to find the right person.

Re: 2.3t for 5.0w swap. Anyone interested?

I think it makes sense to keep the original engine in there since it is fairly low mileage. But I also think it makes sense to put an LSX in just about everything since they seem to have so many good qualities.
