35mm Offset

Will a 15 x 7 wheel with a 35 mm offset work OK on my 94 LX?

Thanks

Tony

I doubt you'd have any problem, especially with 7" wheels. Stock offset is 39mm, so you'd only be 4 mm off, (a little more than 1/8") - it'd be hard to even measure that small a difference on the car.

And hey, Tony - I'll be visiting my folks in Berthoud for a few days over Christmas - we should get together for lunch or something...

John,

What days are you going to be here? Give me a call @ 970-690-2341.

I work on Monday and Tuesday I think but schedule should be pretty flexible.

Wed or Friday would probably work OK also.

I'm flying in on Christmas day, then leaving Tuesday afternoon, the 30th - 'short stay this time. But Fri, Sat, Sun, or Mon works for me. 'Evening would be OK with me too - maybe catch dinner and a few brews or something...

I drove the Mark VIII out last summer with my GF, but that was an even shorter stay, since we were catching all the sites on the way out and back, (Arches National Monument, Breckenridge, Mesa Verde, Monument Valley, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Death Valley, Yosemite, etc.). I really do like driving vacations when the ride's nice, (but not in the winter...).

OK. We will get together for sure. I will be around all of those days. Hopefully I will have my 3:73 back in. Was supposed to go in today but my mechanic said he came accross a Ford TSB addressing a vibration in that pumpkin and he wanted to do a little research on it.

I love a nice road trip myself. Arches is fantastic.

Hey ,

Yes that is the one. I do not have all the particulars yet but he said it involved the ring and pinion. I will let you know something as soon as I find out. Dont want to post a bunch of mis information if you know what I mean.

Compression turned out OK as far as I can tell. The dry numbers were a low of 150 and a high of 165. The other 6 were either 155 or 160. The wet numbers were a high of 205 and a low of 190. The other 6 were either 195 or 200. I am at 5000 ft altitude so I think the numbers are pretty good.

I did not do the leak down test as I do not have a source of compressed air and really did not want to pull the valve covers off. The test is a little more involved than I realized.

There a ton of guys with those pumpkins (myself included)... I have not seen any bad "press" about them.. if your guy comes up with something solid, let me know...

If you aren't losing a significant amount of oil, don't worry about the bleed down... if your compression numbers were all within 10% of each other, that's a good sign..

Yeah I hear you on the pumpkin. I think the failure was caused by the bad DS.
Will let you know if anything definite turns up.
