    One mechanic added a wire from the negative battery clamp to the front of the body. I asked another one to check the negative cable connection to the block, but I don't think he did so.
  2. I think one mechanic replaced the cable with a...

    I think one mechanic replaced the cable with a 12" one, since a shorter one wasn't found, and another fellow replaced or enhanced the terminal for the relay end. Perhaps I need someone to hold the...

    Well it's back to the start of the "no crank" from years ago. Turning the key to start causes a clunk, and apparently the electrical circuits cease, including all seven interior lights. My latest...

    My problem is the manual lock, passenger side. The power lock is ok. I've been told that the linkage or the rod was bent, probably by a window motor installer. So I found a rod in a junkyard, but I'm...

    Did you need to remove the headliner to get the vinyl roof off?

    The Herko is working so far, 20 miles, in my 87 mgm. Mechanic #3 said it wouldn't and preferred the reinstallation of the rusted out original. "You don't need no stinkin' fuel gauge." Mechanic #4 got...

    I headed to Florida on 1-28-20, planning to return in March. But with the virus spreading, I stayed put until last week. The letter from the tow company was about losing the car for towing and a $36...
  9. It runs.

    After two more tows, plus about $1,300 more in parts, labor, shop supplies, and taxes, from two mechanics, it runs. It seems the fuel pump electrical stuff is more complicated than I thought....

    David, thanks for the reply. Although my seats are cloth, "beige" seems appropriate. Does Marti report on Mercurys?

    tan, beige, camel?

    What are the interior colors of the 1987 tudors? Is mine a tan, beige, camel, or some other moniker?

    As I wrote in post #41, at the end of the first round, the engine cranked after the fender starter relay was replaced. The second mechanic reported that the engine started with some gas put in the...
  13. Round 3

    I'm back in town and finally got to see the tank and the rusty fuel pump. Shop #2 required $235 for their work on the fuel pump wiring, dropping the tank, and removing the remaining exhaust pieces....

    Upon closer inspection, the cats were stolen, so test pipes are now the plan. The battery finally arrived. It started with some gas in the intake, but no response from the fuel pump. Due to security...
  15. battery stolen, exhaust broken

    The guy who knows the lock combination finally showed up, and after two more days, the tow truck fellow got the car back across the street to the shop front lot at about 9:40 am. Unfortunately the...

    EaOutlaw1969, your point is well taken. OTOH the collective knowledge about our cars reflected by the posters on this thread is probably greater than that of most general repair mechanics. After more...

    Nick,

    Thanks for your offer to help. It's been sitting at a shop's secure lot for six weeks. They want to do the diagnostics and repair, or they'll charge for storage. Here are my suggestions for...
  18. Round 2

    I'm back, and ready to proceed to fuel system repair. Since the battery is done and cranking has been achieved, should I start a "no start" thread or continue here? Dropping the tank and replacing...

    Saturday was a rain out, but Chris said he'd come with tools on Sunday at nine. Then he said eleven, and finally showed up after one. I was apprehensive as he jacked the passenger side front with a...

    I was able to get close enough under the car for a few whacks, or maybe taps, with a hammer, but no change when I subsequently tried to crank. Should whacking be simultaneous with the cranking...

    I obtained a voltmeter. The battery is 12.43 post to post. Bypassing the ignition circuit yields 12.23 at the relay output, and an immediate turn off of interior lights when repeated with the starter...

    Slack, thanks for the tip. How many screws are there to get the dash out? Are there plastic tabs or other easily broken connectors to deal with?

    After another four years in the sun, the other speaker cover section is rotted. So I'm still looking for a tan, or a restomod brown one, if they exist.

    The man with tools was scheduled to show up at noon for $100. Now he texts that his e-t-a is about 4 pm. Hopefully it won't rain again today. The other six guys are on vacation, too busy, or won't...
