Re: #@$@#$@#WE@#$@ John Vanlandingham

So what was the first world war? (Or the third depending upon which one was first? Bump from the dead . I suggest that the time period from roughly 1750 to 1815 to June 1815, or from the Seven Year's War to the end of Waterloo, that in that time period Britain and France in ever reshuffled coalitio...

Re: 3 groove crank pulley

My XR had a stock 3 groove crank pulley (old A/C routing) and 2 groove water pump pulley. I don't know other applications which match, sorry. http://roadtrippin.org/demonfire/pics/XR4Ti/Winter2007/pulleys.jpg Stole Ray's pic, but our cars stock were the same. I'd say it's only better if you want to...

Re: Where to Find XR4Ti Shop Manual?

Nope. I know the 85 is different at least. No external relays for the fans for one. then, I wonder why those years aren't included on the disk. 85 is the year I would need. ( 95% is the same. And there are surprises re colors in both cases. The errors are obvious..So something right for 95% is a lo...

Re: Where to Find XR4Ti Shop Manual?

Thanks, there's a lot more than just the shop manual in there! I ordered one up, seems like a great deal for what you get even though its not a physical copy. Does it have "Electrical troubleshooting manual"? Those are absolute gems! The official wiring diagrams are enough to drive sane men mad and...

Well the title says 3 groove...And I have a pile of 7-8 2 groove thangs and never had a mustang to slaughter---(wonder what we call the in Engleski? "Slakta" is the word I'm thinking of but not sure it translates...Part out?) s...

Don't bother with the Haynes manual, get the real Merkur Shop manual. Mike sells it on CD as well as some others here. Paper ones turn up on eBay frequently.

Re: AWD conversion $$$$?

I'm not saying that I can't drive it in the snow, but it does make things difficult when they don't plow on post. On the bad days I can take the wife's Mercedes. I'll work on getting a good rear lsd and some snow tires, then maybe I'll change my mind..... A GOOD stiff LSD with maybe min175 ft/lbs b...

4x4 YB engine MT75 4x4 trans + other stuff I'd say $6000-$7000 just to get your foot in the door. A fully rebuilt YBG---the stronger 4x4 block and head---with a good "0" "0" crank, new guides new springs, new pistons real full proper rebuild---and with a YB of any sort, its not a motor to cut corne...

Re: AWD conversion $$$$?

You can buy an 02 WRX for less. I'd suggest that route. If you want a car with an engine with a know weak cast iron crank, weak rods which bend with boost do-able on a stock turbo, cast junk pistons, the longest belt in the world which sometimes break the bolt for the tensioner, a glass tansmission...
