  1. Very nice condition and worth every penny!! Mine with with my 1995 'Tour to PDXSVT.
  2. Sunroof issues addressed? Drive gear made from Delrin. It is a viable solution, an engineering thermoplastic.

    Contour SVT

    Eyes wide open. Local owners not willing to sell, just yet.
  4. Well I do know of one stateside Zetec that has bent valves. Word is that these ARE INTERFERENCE if rpms are sufficiently high enough when the timing belt breaks or the idler pulley cracks.

    Glad to hear from you Ferret!!! My 'Tour is now owned by a fellow member here, PDXSVT. I purchased a very nice 2007 Focus ST (2.3 Duratec). Loads of fun but not as nice as my 'Tour was. Working to rectify that, starting with suspension (springs, struts, bigger sway bars, poly bushings, etc). Wish I had kept my 'Tour SVT.
  6. The Sierra XR4i is an automobile from Ford, with rear wheel drive, a front positioned engine and a saloon (sedan) body style. It's powered courtesy of a naturally aspirated engine of 2.8 litre capacity. This power plant features overhead valve valve gear, a 60 degree V 6 cylinder layout, and 2 valves per cylinder. It produces 160 bhp (162 PS/119 kW) of power at 5700 rpm, and maximum torque of 216 N·m (159 lb·ft/22 kgm) at 4300 rpm. A 5 speed manual transmission transmits the power to the driven wheels. Maximum speed quoted is 209 km/h (130 mph). Seen occasionally in the States as a Merkur XR4Ti which is similar, but the main difference is the Merkur came with a 4 cylinder 2.3 Turbo engine. We can thank Ford VP Bob Lutz for bring the Merkur to the US Market.

    PDXSVT - I KNOW you have questions regarding how to make your Zetec faster, on the cheap!!! Ask me how I know this? LOL
  8. Aussie - what is this latest on the Mystique? I have been away for a few years.....my bad.
  9. Yes, spring is required on rear wheel cylinders (drum brakes). Rebuild kits may or may not contain these springs. Rebuild kits typically contain piston seals and end cap seals. Most auto parts sources moving to replacement wheel cylinders. Back in the day we use to clean up the inside of the wheel cylinders with honing stones in order to remove pits that are a result of water (contaminated brake fluid). Failure to remove these pits will quickly result in the failure of the replacement piston seals. Moral of the story here: Bleed your brake fluid completely once every 2 to 3 years. Way frequently overlooked procedure.
  10. Sorry for the delay...holidays got in the way. Springs were removed from struts. Need to locate them yet.
  11. I have a perfectly good single fan setup from my '95 Contour with the 2.0 ZETEC and 5spd. I would be willing to give it to your son, just for the price of shipping. I ended up redoing my wiring harness for the fan, and at that time went to dual fans from a '98 Contour. It is a West Coast model, so there is absolutely zero rust anywhere!
  12. I may still have my front springs from my '95 'Tour with the 2.0 ZETEC and 5spd. Same springs, I suspect. If I can locate them, you may have them for the price of shipping - both of them if you desire.
  13. Don't get hung up on details, details, details......remain flexible ;-)
