General Parts Cross-reference
by Hessel Kooistra, III, M.D. (Dr. Hess)

Dr. Hess collected these from various web sites and mailing lists from all over the world, and researched some himself from catalogs in various forms or by going through boxes at the auto parts store. "Confirmed" means that this is something he has tried and personally confirmed that it works on his car. It is a pretty high standard for confirmation, but there are parts substitution lists out there that are wrong or parts are listed for the wrong years. Unless otherwise noted, this applies to a 1989 Non-SE Esprit Turbo. Many of these will cross over to other Esprits, especially 88-92's. The table on Dr. Hess' site is updated when new data comes in.
