Re: Coolant Temperature Sender

Bought 2 from Latvia, cost about $19 including shipping. Took a couple weeks. Haven't had a chance to install, but they look well made. I got mine from Latvia also. I also had not had a chance to install. Which ones (what color ring) did you guys get from Latvia? The color ring is relative to the t...

Forget the one from RockAuto or the Bronco. Scorpio is special and RockAuto is wrong.
( x 2 ) The Scorpio sender is unique and nothing else in the North American market matches it.

I'm not recognizing that part at all. Proceed like you didn't find it. :mrgreen:

Maybe its a piece from the brake light switch by the pedal?
Or the cruise switch by the pedal? (...if it has cruise control)

Re: Double Black 88 W/C4 and every upgrade

Has to be the first XR I've seen offered for sale with a C4 in it.
Flipping through your photos, your C4 swap is much more refined than mine :cheers

Re: Did 1989 XR4TI solve the previous dash and head issues?

Hey Mike... Just for poops n giggles, what's the ballpark cost if the following were done in your shop? A4LD swap with upgraded 4.0 Explorer Towing rebuild. Engine upgrade to the 175 hp manual specification. Changes to retain fully stock appearance. I don't work on anyone's cars besides the ones we...

Re: Did 1989 XR4TI solve the previous dash and head issues?

I also would want to have it redone without any visible non-Merkur alteration. If it's sitting at a car show with the hood up, it must look 100% stock. Last A4LD I did I used a Merkur Scorpio dipstick & tube. Bolted up to the same spot the C3 stick and tube does. Looks pretty much like it came from...

Re: WTB - a crack free grey dash pad for a 1985 XR4TI

Good dashes are available, but the better dashes will not have the speaker grille in the center and the majority of those are a slightly darker shade of grey. Here's a video with an 85 that had a cracked dash I swapped a mint 88 dash into: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGz63Sb0j_I A bit of a two-t...

Re: WTB - an XR4TI stick or automatic

With almost any car, the "issues" get fixed / revised as the model years go on. Electrically and mechanically the 85/86 cars are inferior to the updated 87 and newer cars. 88-89 cars are better in numerous aspects, except the fact they don't have a bi-plane spoiler!

Re: Did 1989 XR4TI solve the previous dash and head issues?

88/89 heads do have a different casting #, so there must be "some" improvement made by Ford if they went through the trouble. If the car is stock the C3 and T9 are OK...but any big power improvements are going to require something a little stronger. If you're doing an automatic behind the 2.3T then ...

End of an era. The condition of those IMON stickers on the rear glass from <1999 are a pretty good indication this has been kept in a time capsule garage for quite some time. (My IMON stickers from way back then turned into plain silver after about 4 years.)
