On the accumulators, I'm just curious if anyone here would be interested on the ones in the eBay link for a group buy? I'm asking the seller if he would do a group buy but, it depends if I can get anyone here to jump on board and how many you be interested in purchasing. Also, just curious on how much you would pay for one?

The Club did this years ago with a company called SPINNING WHEELS and we actually bought out ALL of their inventory :)

I would be in at $125.00 per unit.

Sorry for lack of response to this thread. I tried contacting the seller last year and never heard anything back. I could attempt to contact the seller again but, I believe the seller is pretty much firm on his price especially after selling over 150 of these now. If you look at the reviews, you see that people aren't completely happy with the price. However, these sell pretty decent as I watch the item frequently and the seller realizes they have the market cornered for now.

I just asked this question on another accumulator ball thread here. I'm about to buy a 25528382-clone acc. ball. It apparently sits about an inch taller than the original but the Mark seems to have the vertical room to accommodate it. And the pressure seems compatible (10ATM I think...?). I'm just concerned about the thread compatibility and depth..anyone used one of these on their Mark?? Mine's an '86 with the short nipple ball...appreciate the help guys...

Hello, I sent the seller a message via eBay again yesterday. So, I heard back from the seller and the lowest price he'll go if enough people were on board for purchasing these would be $250. That's the latest and greatest regarding the accumulator balls replacements.

If it is indeed the part we need, $250 is better than the $400.00 from Jaguar.

Hello, yes that is true. In order for this seller to give us the discount I would need a small group of people to be committed to purchasing these at this price. The thing here is that there is currently three of these left and then he may not have any for a while since his supplier has to produce more for him. I realize $250 seems steep however, there is kind of specialty item. I'm just wondering how many individuals here would be interested in purchasing at $250 shipped if anyone?

John, thank you for the warm congratulations on my 100 posts here which will 101 after this post. Thank you for letting me know you would be interested. We'll see if anyone steps up to the plate. Right now the seller has two of these left until he receives another shipment. Thank you again and I will wait to see if anyone else would be interested.

Guys, I just ordered an AC Delco 25528382 clone (brand new) for $169 + $10 shipping. I am placing some trust in the various people here who commented that this ball will work on the Teves-equipped Mark 7. Two specific people said that they or someone they knew had used a 25528382, one on a T-Bird and another on an actual Mark 7. I can post the seller's eBay handle here if anyone's interested as he has about 5 left...sure hope it works... :)

I bought one a few years back for the Whiteox, I'm buying this one for Blu as it is still the original one from the factory. Still working but as everyone knows they don't last forever...... Will see if they actually ship it or is it just a fluke :mrgreen:

Fingers crossed, and I might need one also. My new 92 SE has a "one pump" accumulator now, and my 91 SE takes about two pumps still.

I took the left wiper arm off of it, to give to the 92. It turns out the arm was just off of the little pin, which made the wiper turn almost sideways. It needed just two new wiper blades, rain was coming in later. The "new battery" in the 92 was fine, but the terminal bolts weren't tight, and you know what happens if the electrical connection is lost, ... no lights etc. The new car will be a bit needy for a while, until I get it coached up to act right for me. I've got just one key for it, and the owner didn't know what the keyless entry code was, or what it could do. I popped the trunk and checked the sticker on the trunk lid arm, and then added my preferred code to it. But with no lock actuators, it can only open the trunk right now. Where's my 1/4" rivet gun?

Very cool.
You're gonna have SO much fun!

Jerry is right about the jealous cars. I lose batteries in threes, transmissions in threes, cooling systems in threes, and suspensions in threes.

I'll let you guys know about the accumulator

BTW Blu and the Whiteox are in the garage, separated by a wall, so they can't talk or see each other..... Seems to work so far for me :lol: :D

I'm glad the club buy from Spinning Wheels back in the day worked out. I had no idea it had reached a 100 units. Wow! My convertible will need one some day but I don't think it makes sense to buy one now and have it sit on the shelf. Of course years down the road when I get going on that restoration I may wish I had bought one for it as they may become "unobtanium."

I now have mine ($169 + $10 shipping). It's the one pictured above by John. I will be taking my '86 (pic attached) in in the new year for all new rotors (cross-drilled), calipers (w/metal pistons, not phenolic)), pads, wheel bearings, rubber (or neoprene...) brake lines, new emerg. brake cables, new struts, shocks, air springs, sway bar end links, and a complete bleed and accumulator replacement. (getting everything done while it's up on the hoist...). My current accumulator is working OK (...I'll keep it as a spare...) but my mechanic said I might as well pull everything apart and replace it while it's up in the air...I'll let everybody know how the new accumulator works out...

Replace the accumulator separately from the other brake components, such as brake hoses and caliper. Limit how much air gets into the system. It's much more difficult to bleed the air out of an empty TEVES system, than to work out each component one at a time. I learned that the hard way, I did the front calipers, hoses, and accumulator at one time. Normal bleeding didn't do anything, and running the pump seemed to not do anything. I ended up using a second person to bleed the front manually, while running the pump by turning on the ignition. It took a good while to begin to see fluid pumped to the first(right) caliper.
