From any other Merkur. They interchange between both cars, but not sides of cars. It's self explanitory once you get the inner door panel off. The hardest part on replacing is getting the hook into the handle without breaking the handle. I've often thought about enlarging the hole, but I don't have ...

I've had dealer people that remember the car and try to sell me something new even after talking to them about the Merk for 30min. I then tell them they ain't got nothing I want and point to my dilapidated Merk.

Nothing big, just a mini-meet so to speak. If it seems like we got big #s, we can make it "potluck" or something.

Also adjust rear camber to about .5-1° positive(you'll have to come up with a way to do this as it is not adjustable from the factory) when sitting still. The rear ends on these cars like to squat(more negative camber) under hard acceleration.

Mine is techincally a 3 car, but it is configured to hold 2. i actually like this setup 30ft deep x 20ft wide. It gives me alot of shop space I wouldn't have otherwise. If I can get funds, and town approval(no HOAs woohoo!) I want to rebuild it as a minmum 50ft deep x 30ft wide and 20-25ft interior ...

Front pump and wear plate will come off with the bell, leave them on it for now(this way someone can just use it for a C-3 right now if needed). Output shaft requires teardown of the entire trans to remove. Once the bell is off, just start pulling guts out from that end, and then there is a snap rin...

Not that I am aware of. It could cause problems having it mounted sideways(inlet/outlet in the vertical postion). Upside down may not be an issue though. Others would know better than I. It will not fit the stock Merk bracket though.

Bell housing, front pump, wear plate, tailshaft/tailshaft housing. All can be used on an A4LD. Bell fits A4LDs that were not behind 2.3L with mods to the wear plate. Tailshaft and it's housing are needed to retain stock type mount in an XR, though not required(unless you are putting a non-Merk A4LD ...
