Re: WTB - 1988 XR4Ti - Black Preferred

I like it better than a C3, and has nice hard 1-2 & 2-3 shifts. But I would rather have a 5-speed. Got all parts for swap except tranny/clutch.

If I don't sell it this winter, might do it in the spring...

Re: WTB - 1988 XR4Ti - Black Preferred

I may end up selling my 85. Black with gray leather interior - driver seat multiple cracks, the rest good. Body and frame nice. It has 4 speed AT (A4LD), but I have parts needed for manual swap, except tranny and clutch. Some mods: Big VAM, IC, 3" exhaust, SVO ECU, upgraded brakes and suspension. Le...

Re: 88/89 XR4 Brakes

I had same issue - ended up being MC internal seals were shot, causing spongy pedal/pedal to the floor. Like suggested, check for leaks at all brake line connections, then bleed brakes starting at furthest wheel. If still bad, good luck finding a rebuilt MC. DONT GET A USED ONE!

Guy, thanks for the size info, and the McMaster site is awesome. Did you use washers?

Exhaust Manifold Bolts - Thread Size???

In process of replacing cracked header with an E6 manifold, and found that PO had used two bolt thread sizes: 3/8-16 and M10 x 1.5mm Hopefully the head threads are not too jacked up! I have searched several sites and references and both thread sizes are cited. Does anyone have a factory manifold bol...

Re: Boost Gauge max reading not changing?

Support bracket is on the way. RFE6 manifold arrived, and is new with no visible issues. Need to get longer bolts since it is 1.5" thick. What type studs/nuts have you all used successfully for manifold-to-turbo flange to prevent loosening? Looking at Hex Flange Prevailing Torque Lock Nuts: https://...

Re: Boost Gauge max reading not changing?

That's what I was leaning towards, thanks for making up my mind.
Found a new RFE6 manifold on Ebay, will arrive next week.
Need to find a turbo support bracket, or try to make my own, to avoid having all that weight hanging off the new manifold and cracking it.

Re: Boost Gauge max reading not changing?

So, 3 months after last post (suffering since from locked-up right shoulder, and had to replace fried alternator and starter due to a shorted-out solenoid, but enough excuses) I believe I finally found the cause of loss of boost: cracked weld in the XS header. Appears to have been repaired before. A...

Re: Boost Gauge max reading not changing?

Sorry for getting back so late on this. Answers: yes, boosts up to 10 and holds strong. New vacuum lines are Gates 7/32 rubber. I connected my air compressor to the hose that comes off the intake, and pressurized to 25psi. Found a couple of tiny leaks where hoses connect to vacuum tree, and as sugge...
