Re: No fuel pump......

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...

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

Will wood has a valve with the metric fittings on it that are the same as the stock metric ones.
I was looking at this as an add on for mine when I put on the mark viii master.

Re: Lsd instal

I also got the kit from Grayson/mc2 for this. I opted for him to press in the bearing races into the cups as well. You will need something sturdy to mount the diff to while your grinding the case and setting up the gears. If you don't mess with the pinion gears the job is much less involved. The fac...

Re: Camber eccentric bolts, rear beam, and nylon STA bushing

McMaster Carr has a great selection of shims if you decide to go that route. I went this route and it works well. Just order a package of a few different thickness and have at it.

Re: How much work to install longer wheel studs

The ARP studs are nice. I have those on my ride. For those looking for something
just a little longer than factory there are other choices too.

Very nice ride! I think I would give up my XR if I could get my hands on one of those.

Re: How much work to install longer wheel studs

The only thing you will need to remove are the calipers, disks and or drums. Once you get those off you will have enough clearance to get the studs Out from the back. If you thread a nut on first then give it a whack with a hammer it will prevent the threads from getting mangled too. As others have ...

Re: instrument cluster lights

When trying to solder in bulbs to the existing twist lock sockets there are a few things that help. Bend the leads on the bulb down away from the bulb body. Use some emery paper on the bulb leads first, or you can scrape the oxidation off gently with an xacto knife. Next tin (solder individually) bo...

Re: 1989 Coolant Routing Simplification

There's a few decent pictures of the details on the Saab radiator in my install post here ::

The top small connection on the Saab radiator is actually on the right side for the 89 Coolant bottle set up.
