  1. Bleeding the Brakes with Hydroboost?

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Hey everybody, So I recently got finished with installing all new cobra disk brakes on all four, and also installing a hydro-boost system on my Mk 3. I've bled brakes on my different cars but not one with hydro boost on it. So recently what is happening is that i fill up the reservoir and and...
  2. Want to Buy: SN95 Splash Shields

    Parts For Sale / Wanted
    Anyone have the splash shields for SN95 front spindles they are willing to part with? I have '94 spindles but no splash shields and would like to install the shields if I can find them at a fair price. Thanks ewh123
  3. Torque for SN95 Wheel Bearings

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I have installed SN95 spindles on my MKII and am confused over the torque for the wheel bearings. I have tightened the spindle nut down to where there is no play in the bearings and the wheel spins smoothly. I have now heard that the bearings need to be tightened to 250 foot pounds. This seems...

  6. 94/95 T5 conversion from AODE - help?

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I just bought my donor, a 1995 GT with AODE. I understand the general swap process to get to a T5, but I've seen some conflicting info on the bellhousing/input shaft arrangement. It's obvious that the 94/95 transmissions have a longer input shaft, but for putting it into a FF MkIII, can I use...
  7. Anyone running IRS/FFR Konis/SAI/15" non-pindrive?

    Brake and Suspension Tech
    I know the SAI mod is intended for 17" wheels, but I love the classic look of the 15" wheels on these cars. I have looked through the forums and see that some have done the SAI mod with 15" pin-drives, but was wondering if anyone had the 15" non-pindrive set up this way. Just to re-cap, here...
