The originals were foamed polyurethane, not rubber.

Re: Replacement for factory Mini-spare tire (AKA Donut)

I keep a tire plug kit in my vehicles... Along with either a 12v air pump or a can of fix-a-flat. I never had to use them on my vehicles, but I have used them on coworker's vehicles many times. The Sprite is a special case. Wire wheels and inner tubes. The spare is the only option and I always top o...

Re: Front Caliper Anti Rattle Spring

Are the rear bump stops you received solid rubber or foamed polyurethane? The picture does not look like the OEM part (and they say it is a reproduction)

I am really impressed that they have body panels. I wonder if they could ship a hood over here.

Re: Front Caliper Anti Rattle Spring

Also thanks. That MotoMobil site is very interesting as well. How was the shipping costs from them?

I see they have many body panels...and new windshields!

Re: Turn signal/hazard switch

Not sure this helps.. The flashing relay works by electric current drawn by the load (lights) heating a bi-metallic strip inside the relay. How fast the bi-metallic heats up determines the blinking rate. So if you hear the relay clicking fast then it means the current draw is higher than normal. It ...

Re: After a 20 year hiatus...I shall return to Merkur Carlisle.

I doubt I'll find a 24v Cosworth 2.9L engine from the UK complete with ECM and harness... I usually go to the Import show and that flea market always seems to have something. Don't think I will find anything interesting at the Ford flea market. In any case - I do like stocking up on consumables or s...

Re: 5 Beeps

Speedo and cruise are tip top. Glad to hear...but just be aware the speed sensors die eventually. Took a failed unit apart and it looks like poor weather seal. In my Scorpio is was replaced around 40k by the original owner and then that replacement failed in my hands at 82k I designed an adapter ci...

Re: Day dreaming about a 4.0L in a Scorpio

They don't look like the Tom Morana rockers (http://www.moranav6racing.com). Wonder where they came from...
BTW, do the 2.9 Valve covers fit the 4.0?


So this is the official start of the 4.0L swap?

Re: EEC auto, manual differences "?"

Don't the manual trans cars also have an air pump?
