Thanks! I've got a set of 764's sitting in my van waiting to be installed in the XR. The current plugs were at about .080 gap and it ran better when they were gapped to .030". However, the biggest change was plugging up the huge vacuum leak that was near the brake booster. I've also got a O2 sensor ...

Pics from picking up the car in Ann Arbor. My buddy Graham went with and had the joy of driving the car back with an open exhaust and no radio. That's a buddy!

SPOUT Location

OK, according to the manual and reading online, the SPOUT is near the distributor/TFI. Oh, in case it matters, it is on a '85. Well, I do find a round connector with a single yellow wire coming out of each end. It is in the same wiring harness as the Dis. Is this the SPOUT? I pulled the codes, the K...

Body cladding or moldings - Clean up / restore?

On my '85, the moldings are pretty weather beaten, has anyone tried a black bumper restore on them?

Any recommendations?

Turn signal not canceling and hatch lock

Folks, The turn signal doesn't cancel from making a right turn. I know on old GM cars, there was a little spring that needed replacing but I'm not working on a old GM car. So what is needed to repair this issue? Also the hatch doesn't lock when you turn the key in the driver's door. I can hear the s...

Howdy from Illinois

Hey Folks, I've just picked up an '85 XR4ti that from Northern Wisconsin via Ann Arbor Mi. From what I was told, it belonged to a German fellow up North there. He passed away and his wife sold the car. A college kid from Ann Arbor bought it and fixed some issues with it but decided to get rid of it....
