Re: A4LD... What's out of adjustment?

Definitely gotta have the right modulator. As far as the VB(valve body) goes, rebuilding that can get tricky. I've been through one or 3 VBs and sometimes they're so stuck, you can't even get them apart even after soaking in carb cleaner for a week. I do have a few VBs on the shelf that were gonna g...

Re: Helloooo! My car wont start.

After you do all of Mikes suggestions buy a battery tender. I have never been able to leave a Scorpio for more than 2 weeks without driving it and still have the battery full of juice.

I have some photos of how it has been replaced, I need to figure out how to post them here now since photo suckit is NFG.
postimage.org, no sign up required even. Downside is that images may need to be resized if they are too big. I have no affiliation, It's just what I have switched to.

Which one? Narrow tunnel 1985-1986 or wide tunnel 1986.5-1989?
Mike,

You what build dates(month and year) identify early vs late? Is there a measurement that one could take to determine which they have?

Re: Spring clunk

Yes, it's almost definitely the upper mount. It could be the bearing failing, preload on it too high, worn rubber allowing it to jump around, or something similar. But the problem is up there. Remove the strut, inspect the mount, see whether something is damaged or worn or if you're lucky it's just...

Re: Spring clunk

I don't have coil overs, and these are new springs, and koni yellow struts. Also this is occurring with the car in the garage while stationary. Though I have heard when pulling out of the driveway. Only happens on the passenger side. Others have suggested the upper rotating bearing as a possible cul...

Re: Everybody please stop using photobucket...

I've been using postimage.org. Totally free, no ads, no sign up required. You have to resize the images if they're over a certain size :roll: I have no affiliation. Hey sorry been away for a while.

Spring clunk

I've been poking at the project as time, and bad back allow. And this morning while we were warming up the engine to check a power steering leak fix, I noticed a clunking sound. I've noticed it before, when driving the car(which hasn't been anywhere near as often as I want). This only appeared after...

Re: Custom USB charging port

Whats facebook :roll: I'm planning to put a pair of USB ports in the blank plate that covers the joystick fader hole(XR). I have 2 or 3 of those plates laying around, and one already has a hole in it. This way I keep the cigar lighter/power port free, and it should look stock. I don't have rear pass...

Re: focus recaro seats

I assume that they are power-adjustable, yes? The one I test drove was. I think they all are, but don't know for sure. I know that the RS has power seats as standard IIRC. It doesn't seem like you can take much out of a production car these days(IOW everything is standard it seems). For giggles I c...

Re: focus recaro seats

The Focus ST seat for 2017 MY fit me like a glove :mrgreen: I have seen the ST seat on Ebay or even local CL. The biggest complaint I've seen from the magazine reviewers it the "high H" seating position that Ford uses. Apparently it makes it easier for old people to get in and out of the car. I did ...
