That, plus cleaning and pulling up the contacts on my left brake light connector ended all the issues I had.

Re: Anyone DD theirs?

Also, it's been mentioned here about grounds, cleaning and adding a few. Where should they be added?? The only grounds I've added have been taillight matrices-to-body ground-- they pop up as an issue in lots of these cars. I would do it to any XR I own. The rest were matters of repair and maintenan...

Re: Show me your Belt Routing with a Passenger Side Alternator

Here's another shot of what "Sixfoot7" Hugh Lacy did to Have It All with an '89-- no relocations necessary. He did it by extending the alternator adjusting slot downwards, and using shorter belts:

Re: Production date?

Hi Ken,

You'll find the build date stamped on the front of the left (driver's) side strut tower, e.g., 11 21 for Nov. 21st, etc.

That is, if it hasn't been painted over.

Re: Canadian in love with Group A racing.

Anyone upset with anyone turning an XR into a race car is simply not seeing the highest purpose to which they can be dedicated to, and has their priorities all wrong.

Re: Best Valve Cover Gasket

I've never had any issues with their products. It's understood we need the Ranger VC gasket for the XR, and this appears to be a similar situation.

Re: FS: Euro arm rest delete

Other than to be different, is there a reason for this on ours? Well, you have a nice, new part instead of an old, brittle, broken, wobbly one... it might help clean up the interior a bit. Personally, I like having somewhere to rest my elbows on long drives; but if that doesn't matter to you, then ...
