Re: Bleeding T-Bird/Taurus calipers

I saw thise a while back. Apparently they are popular for use on motorcycles.
Those definitely make sense with the varga caliper in our application.

Re: Steering Rack boot

I've used this one on a few occasions. You just need to trim the big end to the larger step size. This was available at advanced auto but that was a few years back...

Re: NEW Merkur part of the week

Mike, could you give us some details on the muffler? I would guess it's a straight through design but what type of packing does it use?

Re: No fuel pump......

Bob you have just displayed this principle. Just because Ed responds with an explanation which is correct doesn't necessarily equal knowledge, one might simply pose my phrase to the great google and voila. In many cases the simplest or the most socially acceptable solution is not the "correct" one b...

Brad, will we need to let you know our sizes for those of us who will definitely be there?

Re: MN12 T-Bird Master Cyclinder (MC) Swap

Advanced auto and Napa both carry these fittings but usually behind the counter. If you can't find the fitting alone they also have preflared lines for pretty cheap that you could harvest one from too.

DPS is a drill point seat. I have seen the adapters called both depending on the manufacturer.

Re: motor mounts

I was looking for a replacement a while back too. My searching turned up a few possible options if someone else wants to do some digging. 240 sx , poly options available might work with mods. I like this style and it could be easily dabbed with generic poly bushes. https://silverproject.eu/en/shop/n...

Is it possible you popped a fuse or tripped the inertia switch while you were back there wiring?

Re: Head gasket replacement

Felpro offers a head gasket set that has all the upper engine gaskets. This includes valve seals, and intake gaskets as well as turbo gaskets. I usually get that but plan on tossing out the exhaust manifold gasket and possibly the cork valve cover gasket. This is available at most parts stores. HS89...

Re: Rear Disc swap, poor pad contact on rotor

I also think that the lack of flex line is your issue but think about it this way.... When at rest the hard line could be applying a pulling force on the top of the caliper. If this happens then the bottom of the rear pad and the top of the outside pad get worn while driving. After the pads have bee...

Re: MN12 T-Bird Master Cyclinder (MC) Swap

The stock t that splits the rear lines on the XR4Ti is also 10mm bubble flare so you could use one of those too. Thanks for pointing that out about the rear fitting. I'm inclined to just use bubble flares on the rest of the lines since the new master will be bubble flare too. They aren't really any ...

Re: MN12 T-Bird Master Cyclinder (MC) Swap

So I was mistaken on the proportioning valve fittings. They are m12x1.0 bubble flare but all the rest are m10 x 1.0 bubble flare. So that valve I linked above won't work without adapters and you can't seem to find adapters to go from m10 male to m12 female. I think your on the right track with yours...

Re: MN12 T-Bird Master Cyclinder (MC) Swap

Ill double check when i get home this evening. I think all the fittings are 10mm bubble flare. On the MN 12 master the rear fitting is 12mm bubble but the front is 10mm bubble. I dont recall any being 8mm fittings. https://centricparts.centriccatalog.com/Inquiry/viewDetails.aspx?FirstPage.x=9&FirstP...
