The XR7 is ready for CARLISLE!!!
« on: June 02, 2011, 08:27:10 PM »
Welp when FF came over the other day he inspired me against my lazy wills to get up and see why the XR7 was not running.  First we placed the battery in the car and noticed the negative battery terminal was loose.  FF tried the file trick but it was to far gone so we purchased a new terminal.   But the car was still not starting up.  So FF told me to get a ignition switch. 

So I picked it up the next day and installed it.  Still no lights were going on.  So I started to wiggle wires and She fired up.  Thinking it was a ground issue I took it to BroPro mechanics.  These guys will fix any car.

They tracked it down to connectors at the terminals and soldered both the positive and negative terminal connections and checked the ground.  Now She is running great!!!!!

The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

NOPE!  Because it is a T-Bird and my cars are Cougars.

Since my Birds is parted I certainly can not go to the LVH-T-Bird Norther NJ Show this weekend.

Just may go to the NJ Cougar nationals on July 15-17 in lieu of the LVH-T-Bird Nazareth Show.

I was hung over all day and my peers were only encourage to vote not vote for me.  That is why I did not get 1st.  So take your TROPHTY, whatever that is, and stick it.   :o
