Re: Valve Stem Seals

I don't think either of those Summit parts are for the 2.3t. Fel Pro SS70037 is for the early cars and Fel Pro SS72683 is for late cars. That's your option. The part numbers you post are for Ford mod motors and GM small blocks. There is only one "style" of Fel Pro seals for our cars. I'm just listi...

Re: Valve Stem Seals

Fel-Pro stem seals work fine. Be sure each is fully seated on each valve guide. YMMV That's pretty vague though...These are both "Fel Pro" but significantly different. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/fel-ss729211?seid=srese1&cm_mmc=pla-google-_-shopping-_-srese1-_-fel-pro&gclid=CjwKCAjwiurXBRAnE...

They are available from used cars, usually wrecks or cars which are too far gone to repair.

If you decide to take off the elbow, it's an odds on Vegas bet that 3 or 4 or all 5 of the bolts will snap. IME.

Right, it's not about if they will, it's how many will. ;)

I was interested too, but neither address works... I guess the "a" was supposed to be an "s"? We'll keep guessing at the email address until someone gets in touch with you.

Re: Long Distance Purchase XR4Ti

My opinion: if no one can go and check the car out for you, unless you have a lot of photographic, documentary, and other evidence of the car's condition, I would seek one locally. Apparently, there are a lot more Merkurs in the East anyway, so even if there weren't one avilable now, one that's rig...

Re: Long Distance Purchase XR4Ti

If you are on FB, you should look up the Merkur group, the owner of that car may be on there. Hemmings is difficult I think, similar to a newspaper but even more of a challenge. There are some members also around there if I recall correctly. I know there are people in WI, just not sure of the exact ...
