    Hello all,

    I have some front brake parts for sale that I never used. New rotors, remanufactured calipers.

    These calipers are for a 1990 SC (so I think they will fit 89-92, but will not fit...

    Hi Mikey,

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for the kind words. It is my only SC, at least for now. (Uh-oh, did my wife overhear that?) ;) I am sad to let it go, but "life happened" when our second child came along a...

    Edit: The car is sold.

    Hello SCCoA,

    I am a long-time board member that hasn't posted here in a while. Sadly, my 1990 Ford Thunderbird SC has rusted to the point that it won't pass PA state...

    I think the shop manual may have a test involving taking the seats out of the car, tilting them forward, and seeing if the spool locks then. Just a dim recollection.

    One could also ask why you paid for a Thunderbird when you could have gotten a Hyundai Excel cheaper. They both work. ;)

    The motor brushes don't really go bad with age, as they are made of carbon and are very stable material. Use is what wears them out. Depending on how long the accumulator was bad, it could have...

    No problem. FYI, if you do end up keeping the Teves system, remember that the accumulator ball can be swapped from the top without disturbing the MC and pump. With a special tool (thin wall 36mm...

    The Teves system does give really good, solid pedal feel, which I like. And it's technically interesting (not that it matters too much on a daily driver!). I have had failures of the ABS relay and...

    Does the ABS pump still build pressure? If so, you may not need to swap the pump. Just replace the seals.

    I think that the Buick Reatta switch changed connector design midway through the run. The one KMT linked fits our cars. I think that is 87-88? The later one does not fit (a pigtail is needed to...

    It's possible for the switch to leak around the housing, but unlikely unless you disturbed it. It more likely leaks internally through the body of the switch due to a ruptured pressure diaphragm. ...

    Some people run Mustang headers on MN12s with some clearancing, like heat & dent or cut, turn, & weld, but I think that only works for shorty headers. I think long tube header fitment would just be...

    When you say "union fittings", are these still flared fittings? (I mean 45-degree double flare or metric bubble flares.) Or do you have compression fittings, like NPT threads?

    I agree. Either do the CARB exemption orders for parts, and visual check (with plug-in for the newer cars) OR do the dyno sniffer test. Doing both is a little much.
