Re: WTB: Ford Sound 2000 (factory head unit)

The upper unit, or the lower unit, or both?
The US cars have the same upper unit, but we have a different amplifier for the lower unit.

Re: Scorpio for sale

It doesn't seem like any of the Merkurs listed on that site are currently for sale. I wonder why the site is not updated and has ad listing from years and years ago still up? Just website that grabs and stores ebay / craigslist / etc. listings and reposts the info to drive traffic to the site. (Som...

Re: Speedometer/Speedo cable/T5 Issue

Yes, I have automatic / T5 XR speedo cables.
Good used OEM Ford Merkur ones and brand new aftermarket ones.
Single piece cables, and even the 2 piece cables if your car has cruise control and you wanted to retain cruise control with a T5 swap.

Someone must know the proper cable needed.
A speedo cable from an automatic XR4Ti works perfectly with a T5.

Re: My beater...

I have 4 coolant hoses total on one car. 1 upper rad hose. 1 lower rad hose. 1 hose bottom of coolant bottle to water pump. 1 hose top of coolant bottle to thermostat housing. Ultimate simplicity, but not exactly what you would want to have set up on a daily driver. (No heater core, no water to the ...

  • Haven't found a code reader or timing light. Checked like 4 stores already :/ Do have a volt meter though.
Easiest code reader to use on the XR4Ti:

Re: Having some electrical issues with my new (to me) XR4TI

I have new IAC for $25 + $6.95 ship for what its worth... However, usually a good cleaning will do just fine. You don't have to split it to clean it, just take carb cleaner and flood inside one of the holes until until fluid is coming out of the other side clear. Might take an entire can before this...

Re: Will These SVE 17x8 or 17x9 Wheels Fit?

What size tire is this Mike? Seems pretty narrow for an 8 inch wide rim. Did you know somehow that the 8 inch would clear but the 9 inch would not or did you test a set of 17x9 as well? http://forum.merkurclub.net/forum/download/file.php?id=5006 Thats the trick to get them to bolt right on the car,...

I have had these SVE 17x8 rims with 19mm offset on an XR with no problems, no spacers, just bolted them on: https://cfc7329ad537523a5de1-b21544d490ba797ec9de9d17e947de3d.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com/sve-mustang-saleen-sc-style-wheel-kit-17x8-black-w-machined-lip-79-93_aec4d01e.jpg https://lmr.com/item/WK-100...

Re: WTB: Euro Turn Signal/Hazard Stalk Assembly

Jeff I've put many Mk2 Sierra Sapphire ones (round hazard button) into XRs and they are plug and play.
Some of them have a slightly larger (round) red hazard cover and might need a little pocket knife scraping on the XRs square hole opening but even that's rare, maybe 10% of the time.
