Re: Manual trans into auto xr

Re: WTB - 1988 XR4Ti - Black Preferred

From what I can gather, a roadworthy XR4Ti, with some quirks, can be had for 5000 or less depending on condition? Great low mileage examples push north of that? $5k should buy an extremely nice, stock (or lightly modified) XR4Ti with low miles and ZERO quirks. None of us like the fact these cars ar...

Were the originals not welded?
That one has welded steel plates in place of where the rubber isolators usually reside.

I guess Rapido is closer, but it all depends on what doesn't work.

I predict a Cossie clone.
I too would guess a run up the coast to Rapido...but in 2019 anything can be at your doorstep in a couple days from UPS/FedEx/etc.

Re: 1988 Merkur XR4TI FOR SALE

Sounds like a really nice car! Good luck with the sale.
If the radio turns on but there is no sound it is most likely the small fuse in the back of the amplifier that resides under the radio.

FYI I have brand new OEM window switch sets on hand if you want to get the windows back to 100%

Is the upper intake shortened or changed?
You have to chop out about 1" of the intake when you cut it to rotate it on the flange. If you don't shorten it the hood on an XR4Ti won't shut. :oops:
