    Thatís really neat. While I like the passive seat belts :p I was curious how different these interior pieces are compared to what was used in 1994-1997 (because they didn't have motorized belts...

    Thank you for your feedback. Rest assured, the car is integral to the plot.

    I would buy it but my parents would kill me (I will contemplate whether it is worth the risk). I live In Canton, Ga, which is nearby. I own 2 Oxford White Thunderbird SC's, so there is a lot of...

    I've finally graduated from college, so now I want to try my hand at a project I've been wanting to do for years: make a live-action realistic-fiction series on YouTube that prominently features a...

    Hey, check out Cars for sale. Someone is selling a Black on Black SC 5-speed with less than 100,000 miles. No replies on it yet.

    Sorry for the long wait.

    The engine is back together and it has been started several times. Weíve test-driven the car around the parking lot a few times and keep checking the fluids (especially...

    The two rusty bolts that were snapped off in the passenger-side head have been removed. One of them had to be drilled out, so we will replace it with a stud (that is slightly larger than the old...

    I think it is the passenger side rear. Is that one particularly prone to failing?

    (I'm not at the unit now, so I rotated the photo to make it upright and I flipped the image horizontally so that...

    Heads and head gaskets removed. My mechanic friend said that the heads on my 1991 (the one I snapped 2 rusty bolts in when removing the exhaust manifold) look better than the spare ones I found. He...

    A tree fell in my yard yesterday, so I didnít remove my heads today like I planned. Howevever, something just crossed my mind that I feel like I should share. When I bought my 1991 SC over 6 years...

    I’m absolutely getting the ARP studs (already ordered). I’m leaning towards getting MLS gaskets. I’m keeping the car mostly stock, but I like knowing they could handle some extra performance mods,...

    I feel like I perhaps should have done the combustion gas test, just for peace of mind and to perhaps narrow down what the problem could be if my head gaskets end up looking ok. Lots of parts have...
  13. Crap. I didn't know how the combustion test kit...

    Crap. I didn't know how the combustion test kit worked until after I had drained and removed the radiator (among other engine parts). My dad called our mechanic friend the day after my white smoke...
  14. Hello, It's probably good timing that I...

    Hello,

    It's probably good timing that I changed the ECT sensor in the 1991 because my 1990 (the daily driver) starts fine when cold, but gives me some difficulty starting if the engine is hot. I...

    I have good and bad news:

    Good news: My friend and I ran some wiring and connected an adjustable thermostat to a relay to make my fan come on. I can set it to approximately whatever I want, so I...

    A bit late and slightly off-topic:

    I found a Supercoupe in a museum (with no miles on it) and the number pad is sublime. I took an up-close picture of it so I could maybe someday make a sticker to...

    On the 1991 Thunderbird, I plugged the fan back into the original plug. When I do the paperclip thing with the OBD-1, the radiator fan does come on for a fraction of a second. However the fan didnt...

    The fan in the 1991 is not hooked up properly. Its still plugged into the Autozone temp sensor/relay kit that determines when the fan comes on all by itself. I’ll set the car back to running off the...

    Thank you so much for this info. My 1990 SC was flashing 67,67, 11111 (I did it 3 times and it was consistent each time).
    67 can mean Clutch Switch Circuit Failed (SC only). Its a 5-speed, so this...

    Thanks for your fast response.

    It occurred to me less than an hour after posting that I should try doing the same paperclip thing to my 1990 SC (to see if I knew what I was doing). My 1990 SC...

    Hello everyone,

    I finally started the 1991 SC for the first time since nearly overheating it. No white smoke out the exhaust and no steam coming out of the oil dipstick tube, so hopefully I'm ok...

    Thanks for the fast responses everyone!



    The car has not driven since Spring 2015, but I've run out the fuel and replaced it a couple times since then. I last put in 5 gallons about a month...

    Hello,

    Sorry for the long delay in making up my mind. I've started a thread and have been getting tips from other Supercoupers as to what I really do and do not need.

    Do you have the factory...

    Here's the video I was talking about.

    https://youtu.be/WyAU7uPAhOg

    It's nothing fancy, but I figured I should get it out there so that it's easier to show what I'm dealing with.

    I show the...

    The aftermarket fan I have is pretty powerful. Its basically permanently set to hi speed. However, I donít mind buying a stock fan and stock IRCM relay if that will fix the problem.
