Re: Trailer Hitch Installed on XR

Update! I actually finished the project. I've long since abandoned direct photos, but you can see the Google photos link below, and I can update it if needed. I started with Brad's install, and used the included brackets and hardware on the ends bolted to the frame for the needed strength. The hitch...

Re: XR LED upgrades (Interior, Exterior, etc)

That's what we do here is build upon each other's progress. Please specify if you are using an LED or incandescent bulb for the dash indicator.

Re: New Merkur Owner - SE Michigan

MI guy here! As far as replacing parts with the head, my advice unless you want to get it ported and polished, just get new gaskets for reassembly, starting with the simple 8993 headgasket. No need for a 1035 as it will cause you more headaches than anything.

Re: 88 Scorpio project (Ninja)

Some near perfect shaped holes for Euro side markers. 30 mins and a Dremel involved. https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/752/21789982291_81161a42d4_b_d.jpg And the first photo showing some REAL progress. XR spoiler with tinted 3rd brake light, 2 tone tinted center panel, Euro tails, all holes plugged, and...

Re: Scorpio Vent Door Motor Gears now available

I did another mod to mine. I added a 100 ohm resistor to the motor to slow it down and decrease the torque. 100 was a bit too high, I'd suggest others use a 50 ohm resistor instead.

You're also missing a dust cap for the bottom of the spindle.

$5 each, but I'll do the whole lot (7 window, 1 fuel, 2 heated seats) for 40.

Re: Multifunction Switch

The hazard is the part that almost always fails. Merkur Midwest should have good used units in stock though.

Re: Bizarre Car of The Week: 1988 Merkur XR4Ti

60's cars are getting so expensive that even if Merkurs doubled in value overnight they'd still be cheap. When I go to shows, I get the most gawk out of 20 somethings. The future is ours, I tell ya!! I went to O'Reilly Saturday for some wire and as soon as i got out of my car I was approached by tw...

Re: Finally, custom AC in my XR4 (with an intercooler)

Thanks for the source and instructions. Can you clarify which kits you needed as there are several listed? thanks James Gasket and oring kit, and 1 of the shaft seal kits depending on which compressor. I think I went the safe route and just bought the 753G as it is compatible will all 10p compresso...

Re: Finally, custom AC in my XR4 (with an intercooler)

I've used this site before and rebuilt 2 of my stock compressors with good results. I see they have other kits for other compressors as well. Then I used the next link as my rebuild info. http://www.shopcenturyautoair.com/store/c33/Denso_10P-Series_Compressors.html http://members.rennlist.com/elsies...

Re: Merkur parts

And as far as the rarer Cosworth bits, just be patient, enjoy the car in its stock appearing form, and the parts show up from time to time, both OEM and fiberglass. Keep looking on here and on Facebook. Just be ready to open the checkbook a bit because demand is high, supply is low, and most of us a...

Re: Finally, custom AC in my XR4 (with an intercooler)

Thinking outside the box, I like it! I will keep this in mind for any future projects. Also note that some 1990 Tempos had a 4 bolt Nippendenso 10P15C that would bolt up also. That's what I'm using on my 5.0 build since they are like the XR unit and dang near bulletproof.
