Re: Xr4ti wiring diagram

Here's a couple posts about harness power connectors.
Hopefully some of the guys with 5.0 swaps will post up too.

Re: Xr4ti wiring diagram

Re: Tricks & tips for removing camshaft

FYI KD no longer makes this tool but it's available under the Jack Sealey brand PN VS168. This looks to be a U.K. Producer but it's still being made Jack Sealey - Sealey Valve Spring Compressor Lever Type Ohv/Ohc You can also look for Big A brand PN 17-8611 Or as you mentioned the KD version but bot...

Re: Rapido Big Valve Head

Well since this thread has been revived I guess I'll give an update. The FMS big valve heads definitely don't have hardened valve seats. I had this resurfaced a few years back and the machinist said the valves had sunk into the seats. He builds mini stock motors and said the fms head was mostly aime...

Re: Newer spare tire/wheel option - Ford Fiesta

We just bought a steel fiesta spare this summer for Joe's car. It has Stock brakes so no experience with it on a large rotor car. It did fit as expected and as I recall it was closer to the diameter of the factory tire OD than the original mini spare was. Plus it did fit the factory spare tire well ...

Re: Anyone convert to V8 carb?

I was thinking today and had the thought that if the fuel pump was wired through a oil pressure switch the pump would shut off if the engine died. This would save you from washing the engine down with fuel and help solve wiring issue. Just a thought. This is a great idea in theory but you will be c...

Re: Newbie timing belt adjuster question

Hey Craig. Loosen the idler pivot bolt slightly,that's the one the spring wraps around. Next loosen the idler locking bolt which should be a 13mm head. Next use a ratchet on the crank pulley to rotate the engine clockwise to let the slack over to the tensioner side of the belt. Once you've done that...

Re: Anyone convert to V8 carb?

For all that work and money on the regulator set up I think you would be best served to drop the tank and replace the walbro with a low pressure pump. Heck you can get one of those for probably $20 from rock auto. Then leave the rest of the fuel system as is and cap the return line. If you ever chan...

Re: Jeremy's Merkur "The Mutt"

Well doing some final prep for Carlisle. And the Mutt just got some new shoes! Thanks to Ted for these OZ Montecarlos. I've been looking for a decent set of 17s for a while now. These should give me a few more tire options. http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a41/jkxr4ti/Merkur/CBD1C611-8A50-4B55-9C8E-...
