Back at it with Merkur

Post by phild on Mon Jul 20, 2009 2:41 pm

Hey guys,

I joined last year and came to the Hooters event in Towson, then dropped off the face of the earth. I have a Black 1989 Merkur xr4ti, I'm back identifying the source of the problem of oil spray through a rusted turbo oil feed line. Also the turbo bearings had goine bad in the original turbo. I now have a new T3/T4 Turbonetics turbo that I had to source the fittings, feed lines etc to get it replaced after finally determining the problem wasn't the engine just the turbo feed line.
Once this is hopefully resolved I hope to make couple of events over the summer.

THose Merkur's are cool cars... I had a friend with a Scorpio and that thing was loaded for being such an old car... was the first car I had ever been in with heated seats.

xr4ti has got to be the coolest set of letters ever put on a car, it just sounds cool when you say it, and I thought the car neat as could be, I hope we see you out with it soon.
