Re: Manual trans into auto xr

Got back to the project today... I stuck the clutch, pressure plate and bell on the engine probably a month or so ago, it took forever it seemed, to get the right clutch alignment tool. Don't order it from Jegs, they sent the wrong one, and have no tech specs on them to figure what is needed. I beli...

Re: Looking for auto bell housing for XR4Ti

You can use the C-3 bell, just have to use an A4LD pump plate as a guide to drill the extra holes needed IIRC per Larry Davis. If you want to go to 6 pinion planets throughout like the 5R trans, I have a Scorpio specific tailshaft, and the matching intermediate shaft. I will verify that it is in fac...

Fox bodies did get A4LD near the end of it's run. Thanks for specifying that its the C4 that's the same as t-5.

Re: Why are new cars so expensive?

Minus the costs of everything I mentioned above skyrocketing, and that means we're down 99.99% :roll: :lol: :roll:

Re: Why are new cars so expensive?

To Op I'd like to know where incomes are going up. Yes interest rates are low, and that is one reason why the cost of a modest house(if you can find one) are insane(at least here in the cow town that used to be Longmont CO). I see the biggest reason for car prices skyrocketing the way they have been...

Re: Driveshaft pics XR T9, XR C3, Scorpio A4LD, Scorpio T9

The T-5 slip yoke and auto trans slip yoke are NOT the same. In all the North American A4LDs I have taken apart, the tailshaft was identical to the Merkur C3, and A4LD tailshafts except for the location of the speedo drive gear. The splined section of the auto trans is smaller that the T5. Elsewise ...

Re: Looking for auto bell housing for XR4Ti

All you really need is the A4LD pump plate. Then use it as a guide to drill the holes that the C3 bell is missing. At least that's what Larry Davis once told me years ago, when I had been planning the same swap for my XR... I do have laying around from that project, a tailshaft, and intermediate sha...

Re: Manual trans into auto xr

Next big thing to figure out, how does my clutch cable go thru the firewall on the auto XR? Is there a pre-existing knockout that I can use, or am I drilling a hole lined up with the clutch pedal? I also have to find a clutch quadrant spring, as all the clutch pedals I have laying around don't have...

Re: Manual trans into auto xr

Got new driveshaft back last week. All new U joints with grease fittings, and NOT staked in. New CSB too. A bit more than I paid the last time I had a drive shaft rebuilt, but well worth it, since I won't have to futz with driveline angel of a one piece set up. New one is on top in photo. Kept old C...
