A fusible link allows spikes [AC Compressor startup]. It’s 4 ga smaller than wire it protects, That’s why...

Re: Accuracy of fuel range indication

I always enjoyed playing with the fuel computer in both our Scorpios. I felt they were reasonably accurate and compared well with the fuel guage. I believe the accuracy of miles to empty on longer trips using the cruise control is more accurate than city's stop & go. I could have done a real compari...

Re: WTB C3 Trans

Hi Mike, Thanks for the reply. Ralph, my tranny maniac will only be doing the trans. He suggested an A4LD, but it's Ralph's understanding the customer wants a c3 due to cost. I have found a c3 in Maryland, but it's still in the XR. I'll tell Ralph of your A4LD and its condition. Who knows, customers...

Don't be concerned with shipping, because we'll pick it up. We'll be coming from Allentown PA 18104, so travel distance is a concern. Please respond w...
