Re: Merkur brand not on ebay motors??

They have been cleaning up the selection to exclude very low volume sellers, but I still feel like they should list the brand even if it had to be under Ford or Mercury!

WTB stock 15" wheels (or compatible)

I am looking to buy a set of stock wheels or wheels that will fit on a stock XR without interference. They need to be 195/60r15, but I am fine with either pie pans or BBS style, as well as steel wheels or stock wheels from other cars which will fit and are the same size. Thank you!

Stock focus wheels

Hi everyone, I have been looking for a set of autocross wheels that will fit my XR without spacers. Since there are so many focuses around, would any stock 4x108 wheels from those fit the XR's offset without rubbing, or would I need spacers for all of them? I was hoping to get wheels that could fit ...

Re: Proud owner of a 15,xxx mile 89 Merkur

Is this the car you bought? I took screenshots of every xr4ti that has been on craigslist/ebay for the past 8-10 months while i was looking for one.

Re: Proud owner of a 15,xxx mile 89 Merkur

Welcome! Looks good! I was actually about to buy this one, but decided it might not be a great idea to drive the 24 hours back to Kansas. Instead, I bought one from Georgia.

My paint code??

Hi everyone, In June I picked up my 88 xr4ti. It has been repainted and I do not know exactly what the original color was. Right now it is painted a maroon/dark red, but the door jams seem to be a lighter red. The options sticker was removed and I cannot find any other way to confirm what color the ...

Re: Electrical Confusion

It actually ended up being the inertia switch, so I dropped the tank and pulled the pump for pretty much nothing, but oh well!

Electrical Confusion

Hi everyone, I bought an 88 xr4ti a few weeks ago, and I am wondering about a certain electrical issue that I have encountered. A couple times now, the fuel pump would completely quit working. In the past it has come back on within a few minutes but this time it has remained off. I dropped the tank ...

Intercooler w/ cossie grill?

Hey everyone,
I have recently purchased the shorty radiator/intercooler kit. I was simply wondering if it is almost a must to install an rs500/cosworth grill to get the airflow through the high-mounted intercooler to make it effective. Thanks!

Re: Stock Front Suspension

So ,if I were to order a set of KONI yellow adjustable fronts, could I use those with my stock coil springs or would I have to get a whole assembly of some sort?
