Good evening all I currently have a 97 EL Futura which according the to compliance plate is X5 Mercury Silver in colour. I have previously owned a 97 EL Futura Wagon which was also stamped X5 but the colours between the two cars in noticeably different.
The wagon was silver plain and simple and looked the same regardless of light and angle but the current sedan as pink/caramel/bluish hue to depending on the light and the angle the car is viewed like a subtle harlequin finish. I am not the only one who has noticed this my wife thought I bought a pink car and my sister a very pale metallic blue.My mechanic has also commented on how very are not very many around with this effect.
Looking at retro conversion (reduced base circle) roller cams. Can someone elaborate on if/why the factory 302W roller lifters are not compatible with the Cleveland block? The actual retro lifters are near triple the price but I can't see where the difference lies.
Hey all, has anyone used these aftermarket brackets.? They hold the end of the handbrake cable, when retrofitting an XC 9" into an XB.
Problem is, I cant find anywhere to mount these. With the cable installed, it looks like they just bolt to the dust cover for the rotors.??
Sorta goes about where the diff mount/lowering blocks go...
Anyone got an XC or XD workshop manual showing the mount in place?
Or a photo of a 9" under an XC sedan?
the XF 86DA flywheel will have the same bolt hole size as the EA..
the XF flywheel can be drilled out to the bigger size the XD has, they are otherwise identical to XD etc(probably same as XA or even older)
