Re: Manual trans into auto xr

The speedo gear dorkalator here: https://www.tciauto.com/speedometer-gear-calculator says I need 19.573 teeth. I have 195/60-15 on the car with 3.36 rear diff. I'm pretty sure my t-5 from 1989 2.3l mustang has 7 driven teeth on it. I have both 19, and 20 tooth speedo gears on hand. My math teachers...

Re: Coolant bypass.

If there is something off a Scorpio that you're looking for, let me know. I've got one here that I am taking apart as it's rusted out. Thanks, but I've got a parts Scorpio here as well. The front cover off the Ranger 2.9 is different - that's why that needed to be the donor. I still haven't researc...

Re: Coolant bypass.

Stopped off at a junkyard on the way to Carlisle last month and came upon a '89 2.9 Ranger that was significantly disassembled. I knew this was my chance to get a front cover, so I went to work. Even with all that was removed, it was no walk in the park. The crank pulley had likely never been off th...

Re: Club Area division lines?

There's so few of these cars on the road any more, unless you're near a densely populated area you're most likely the only guy in town with one. Come to Carlisle in 2021 - we'll all be there!

Where do you live? I sourced local. Found a place named verocious in Newcastle delaware
I'm in Orange County NY. I can't image in any place local to me stocks this sort of stuff in any significant variety, but that's fine.

Re: clutch fork too close to bellhousing

so I also noticed when I installed a custom driveshaft some body work was required, I don't remember seeing any posts about that and was quite shocked (WTF moment) when it wouldn't rotate without some cutting. That topic was beaten to death "back in the day". Anything bigger than 2.5" diameter requ...

Re: clutch fork too close to bellhousing

I think you'll find there's a very small number of people who have used the hydraulic bell from the TC in the XR. That said, spacing out the pivot bolt (in moderation) is a valid approach with the mechanical clutch; I don't see any reason why you couldn't do that with the hydraulic clutch.

Re: Source for Silicone Hose Elbows, Reducers, Connectors, etc

FYI, I've seen that other vendors sell the HPS hoses at a small discount. Not sure how deeply they stock all the varieties though.

Source for Silicone Hose Elbows, Reducers, Connectors, etc

A recent post by Jacek reminded me of this vendor, but I hadn't realized just how extensive their line of silicone hoses is. A great resource when doing custom coolant and/or intake plumbing, such as when deleting the HCV and needing a quick 90-degree turn out of the heater core. https://cdn.shopify...

Re: Different Accelerator Cables - T-9 Vs. A4LD

Maybe a 1989 upgrade or replacement? That was actually my first thought. But then I realized the only three Scorpios I've seen with that cable were 5-speeds. Admittedly I haven't looked at many for this purpose, but I'm pretty sure I've looked at A4LD-equipped '89's and they all had the plastic one.

Different Accelerator Cables - T-9 Vs. A4LD

Has anyone else noticed that the T-9 equipped cars use an entirely different accelerator cable vs. the automatics? The one for the manual gearbox cars seems much beefier and not prone to failure like the one for the automatics. I understand the need for a kick-down cable on the A4LD cars, but can't ...

Re: Remote TFI Tutorial from RangerStation

Neat idea to mount it in/on the airbox, but the biggest gain is made by simply remote mounting it on the AL factory remote heat sync just about anywhere away from the engine. On my truck I mounted it to the inside of the wheel well splash shield. They're much beefier on the trucks since the liner es...

Just checking... Looks like the same ECT sensor for the XR (RockAuto parts). Is it?
I'm pretty sure most everything Ford from the mid-'80's to '94 used the same ECT. Even the OBD2 version starting in 1995 has the same transfer curve, just a different quick-connector.

Re: Type 9 (T9) Short Shifter Options

I would say you should definitely check the condition of the saddle bushing then. The T9 never struck me as sloppy or vague with a good bushing in it. Mike Oyler sells them. I'm trying to picture this without going to look for a spare shifter in the garage. Does it attach on the shifter side or in ...
