Yes, '92 - '93 Mustangs and '92 - '01 Rangers will have the round tooth sprockets.

Not a junkyard part per say, but for those with the stock or shorty radiator, the lower hose from a 1992 - 2001 Toyota Camry works great as an upper hose replacement. Got mine from Advance Auto for $20, in stock, no fuss. Part number is DAYCO 71679.

I trimmed what you can see there off the thermostat end. For a stock radiator, you'll need to take some off the radiator end too. The extra length there is what you need for Mike's short setup.

Starting off 2017 with a small addition to this thread...

~'95 - 2004 Land Rover V8 Exhaust manifold bolts. They measure 50mm vs. 52mm for stock 2.3T bolts, so close enough. The head is a 12-point, 12mm, so much smaller that the stock 6-point, 17mm. This might make them useful for some headers where clearance is a challenge. They also come with spacers which could be used as-is or machined in some way.

It's been awhile, but here's a small addition for when you're looking for new wheels studs just a little longer than stock and have only 30 minutes until closing time at the junkyard and need to come home with something. I only removed them from the rears as they are much easier/quicker to harvest....

2012+ Focus & Escape 12mm x 47mm
2011+ Fiesta 12mm x 45mm
20?? Fusion 12mm x 42mm

Stock length is 40mm for both XR & Scorpio. The spline diameter seems to be around 12.85mm

I'm overdue for an addition to this thread...

4-note horn set from a 1980's - 95 Cadillac

These are known as Cadillac 4-Note Horns. I don't know the specific years, but these horns were apparently equipped in many Cadillacs up into the 1990s. Specifically they appear to be found in Cadillac DeVilles until about 1985 (after which the DeVille was downsized). They also came in Cadillac Fleetwoods and some large Buicks until about 1995. Also supposedly in Oldsmobile Toronados until about 1985.
