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 ...

A4LD trans core, parts etc... In Longmont CO 80503

I have an A4LD trans that I rebuilt to mostly beefed up specs. I think I sliced a seal as I put it together, cuz it never had od, and IIRC when i took the Scorpio it was in off the road, reverse was also gone. Oil did not smell burnt. I have not opened it up to dissect it, and see what I did wrong. ...

Re: R&D Hazard Switch stock replacement

So who has the unbroken white plastic bit removed from a stalk that can be measured ad reproduced? The most common failure of any if not all stalks that fail is the white plastic hazard button tower (the guts)...it disintegrates. Its not the springs, its not the wiring, its not the arm (sometimes th...

Re: focus recaro seats

I think it depends on which Focus you get.

IIRC, the stock seats in the XR were manufactured by Recaro... At least so said the tag on mine when I had them out.

Re: R&D Hazard Switch stock replacement

I think someone has at least posted a workaround, so that you can bypass the hazard switch in the stalk. I also seem to recall Bill in Boulder telling me he had a fix for the stalks, but I need to talk to him again. He's on the e-mail list. I have 3 cruise stalks that need repair, along with at leas...

You'd be better of focusing on the prep for the 2.3T swap, and nursing the turd till yer ready to do the swap.

Re: Carbd turbo setup

That's an inline 6 right? If so, as I recall the only Ford inline sixes that are worth building are the 250(passenger car) or the truck sixes, as they have 7 main bearings. The 144 only has 4 mains, and is not gonna survive for long with any kind of power mods. Even then the truck inline 6 is better...

Re: 88 XR4Ti - For Sale - MUST GO

It should, however, at some point you may lose 1st as long as the reason reverse is gone is due to a clogged vb, IIRC, or some other issue that doesn't affect the low/revers band. I've thought about doing the same thing, unfortunately I've been told if I bring another car home, I'm sleeping outside ...

Re: Scorpio Speed sensor question

On closer inspection of the link below, it looks as if the connector on that sensor matches the Contour. I wouldn't buy it until you can verify the connector, especially at $200.00 just for the sensor... It's also for the wrong years too, 94-98. That's the later "frog-eyed" Scorpio. 2nd to last gene...
