Re: How to add a location to my posts?

Go to the User Control Panel

Click the Profile tab

The Edit Profile page should already be selected, but if it's not, select Edit profile on the left.

There's a Location field, right between AOL and Facebook.

Enter your info there.

Re: Ranger roller cam swap with stock lifters?

It's my understanding that the HLAs are the same in all of the 2.3 Lima engines. However, you need to make sure that the followers are designed for the same size valve stem as your existing engine. Ford changed to a different (smaller) diameter valve stem in the 1995 model year.

Re: IMON searchable archives are down....

As an update, they're going to be down for a while. I'm estimating at least a couple of weeks. Sorry I don't have better news, but we will be working to restore them to service and with more up to date content.

Click Attachments, then your Add Files and select your photo file.
You need to be a current MCA member in order for that to work.

Re: Everybody please stop using photobucket...

Hey sorry been away for a while. How do I upload images directly to the forum. Cut and paste doesn't work and I'll be dammed if I'm going to pay photobucket $399! Cheers Linz It's a benefit of MCA membership. There's no charge to join and use the forum, but paid MCA members can upload photos direct...

Re: Greetings - New Member here

Just FYI, I merged the two topics you started. Threads in the "New Users" forum are purged after a while and I didn't want to lose that one.

Re: WTB: XR4Ti in/around SoCal

Maybe we should re-post or archive the smog-related section of this under general information? I've copied the relevant posts to a new thread here: http://forum.merkurclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=32667 Please post any further discussion on CA smog laws there. Thanks for an educational conver...

Re: You guys like expanding foam, right?

Knowing almost nothing about the actual characteristics of the foam you're talking about, I'd wrap the manifold in a mix of heavy plastic sheeting and painter's tape before I foamed it. Maybe I'd end up with a mold and maybe not, but at least I should be able to get it off again without much trouble.

Re: 88 XR4Ti - For Sale - MUST GO

There already is a Block option (see Friends & Foes in your User Control Panel).

Now I'm going to exercise the Lock option.

Re: Vote for the default forum theme

There weren't that many total votes, but the trend was pretty clear, running 10:1 in favor of prosilver. I've set it as the default and *temporarily* disabled the Black style. I'll make it available again tomorrow for those people that prefer it, but this should help switch over the regulars automat...

Vote for the default forum theme

We set a new default theme with the forum software upgrade. The new theme is called Black and while it looks very attractive in my opinion, it's been said that it's harder to read than prosilver, the theme that comes with phpBB. We have both themes installed, so users can select the one that they pr...

Re: Forum update coming soon

Only difference I'm noticing is the color scheme. What was wrong with the previous version, or software(if this is entirely new)? The old version has been out of support for a while and the entire 3.0.x series had reached end of support as of Jan. 1, 2017. So regardless of any additional features, ...

Re: Forum update coming soon

Can we change the look, either as individuals once we login, or can the look be changed back to something easier on the eyeballs, like the old forum? Current color scheme is not easy to look at. Click on the down arrowhead to the right of your username in the upper-right corner of the screen. Selec...

Look in the upper left of the screen, next to the word "Forums". There's an icon with three horizontal lines to its left. Click the three lines icon.
