Re: Just got a '86 Merkur

Wow it's been over 2 years since my last post in this thread! I changed out the V belts for a serpentine setup and cleaned up the wiring some more, getting ready for the rotated intake, turned out pretty nice and it solved a weird problem I was having... the car wouldn't turn off when it was cold! o...

Re: Tricks & tips for removing camshaft

I made these tools for replacing valve springs while head is on the car, they worked out fine, would be real easy for removing just the followers.
1" bar stock from Lowes. old sparkplug, air fitting and pipe for the air injector to hold the valves up.

WTB oil cap that doesn't leak!

Re: 1986 Autocrosser XR4 for sale

A few things yet this summer:

Convert to run E85, already upgraded to 80lb injectors.
Change to the Ranger alt/pwr steering pump setup, not sure if 1 or 2 belts, whichever comes easiest I guess.
Clean some more of the underhood wiring up.
Get the intercooler plumbed.
