Re: Photo of the rear seats folded?

Pull the seat bottom forward first by those black straps at each end, then the seat backs fold pretty flat.
If you don't flip the bottoms up first, the seat backs won't lay flat.

Re: No crank and no fuel

You need to determine if you have voltage at the pumps. There are two pumps, one is accessible under the drives seat, they both power with key on. Unplug the one and put a meter on it, see if you have voltage there when you turn the key. If so, that would mean that your pumps are probably shot… He ...

Re: No crank and no fuel

I’ve checked the fuel Switch, I have power to the key but does not crank the engine or turn on the fuel pump, You say you "checked the fuel switch", you mean the white inertia reset switch in the trunk? If you can jump the stater solenoid and get it to crank then I would definitely check for voltag...

Re: 88/89 XR4 Brakes

Agreed - if no trapped air, and no external leaks, then probably a bad master cylinder.

Re: Fuel Pressure Damper Delete

I've seen it deleted many, many times on the 2.3T. Have a look in it when you remove it, the tube goes straight through. The dampers purpose is to absorb the pulsing of fuel into the fuel rail from the fuel pump...that way you will have an even pressure instead of a pulsing pressure. Newer cars and ...

Re: Stinger (?) 3" Elbow & Downpipe

If only we had room in our cars for that ATP piece... they are sooo nice! Out of curiosity, have you ever considered basing your elbow off a prefab flange rather than salvaging them from stock elbows?

Re: Stinger (?) 3" Elbow & Downpipe

Is that pic of a 3" v-band with a 5 bolt flange and a swing valve? The ATP piece? Those are really nice pieces if so. And you're right about the fact of not enough room in an XR to weld a flange on a 3" 90° pipe at attach it to the v band on that. Here's ours: Stainless ... http://www.merkur.50megs....

Re: Having problems logging in? Read this thread

merkurclub.net/forum works just fine. As if nothing changed when logging in.

merkurclub.com instant redirects to merkurclub.net, which is seamless...however the forum link at the top of that main page still sends visitors to merkurclub.com/forum - which will not let you log in.

Re: How many Scorpios are still on the road today?

Someone had a list of registered Merkurs from 2017. Cars with current registrations and plates -- "on the road" and there were about 100 1988 models and 100 1989 models. I'm sure the list of parked/expired registration/projects/out in a field in W.VA would at least double that number.
