Price you're asking for the adapter you make?

Re: Coolant Temperature Sender

Always search ebay for keywords "Ford Scorpio" and then with "Merkur Scorpio"! What would you guys do without me? Don't be scared of the locations...the items will arrive. That's how I find many parts, if Jeff Herson doesn't have something. If its on eBay, you're in pretty good company... if you're...

Re: Coolant Temperature Sender

Great! I figured you'd have a solution. Brings up a question on an earlier (pg. 1?) quote that its not the same as the Bronco II sender. Just looking at RockAuto, looks like TS36 is the same (used for a variety of Fords since 1969 - 89). Not the same, or something special for Scorpios? Can pick up o...

Re: Coolant Temperature Sender

I too just developed this issue... although the connecting post on mine simply cracked off. Don't know how/why since it's underneath the TB. Anyway, Brokencase I love the approach you took to solving the problem, but I'm not remotely skilled in electronics. After discovering that the stock sensor co...

Re: Scorpio Euro Headlight Wiring

Never mind... I loath hacking new parts for something like this, but I don't want to spend anymore on this swap. So I taped-over and cut-traced the old socket cup notch pattern with an exacto knife, transferred the jig to the new light, and filed two new notches. Works fine. For a "simple" swap, thi...

Re: Scorpio Euro Headlight Wiring

Have you guys found a cross-referenced turn signal socket that fits the Euro Scorpio? My new turn signal lenses/housings use a 2-tab locking system, while the Merkur Scorpio has the typical 3-tab 1157 socket. Don't want to notch out the new lens housings to make 3 tabs in order to reuse the Merkur s...

Re: Scorpio Euro Headlight Wiring

So, ease of installation aside, do you think the H4 hi-beams are enough by themselves for most situations?

Re: Scorpio Euro Headlight Wiring

100W H3's will fry the stock wiring, and while it won't melt the metal brackets, probably melt or distort the plastic reflectors around the bulb holder. When I surfed for info on the H3 wiring, came across a lot of forums for other vehicles where people had done just that.

Re: Scorpio Euro Headlight Wiring

Yeah, same thing happens every time I clean up my garage. I have to look at stuff and seriously ask, "Am I really going to use this, or need it to fabricate something anytime soon?" And as soon as the answer is, "No" and I've tossed it out, I'll be looking for exactly that item a week later for some...

Re: Scorpio Euro Headlight Wiring

Yeah, overthinking it again. Looks like plug and go. So, white wire is HI, yellow is LOW (easy to remember, as yellow has "low" in it, duh. Except evidently for me). Got them mixed up. Lesson is don't start trying to decipher wiring at the end of a long week, and a couple beers, just because you fin...

Scorpio Euro Headlight Wiring

So, I'm finally getting around to installing a nice set of Euro Scorpio headlights I got from Jeff Herson... very nice stuff, as usual. I've converted a couple XR's to the Cossie lights, so I expected that the inner lamps were real driving lights, like the Cossies, which is also very nice to have. I...

Re: "A/C electric fan on when A/C Clutch on"

Ahh... I gotta' think that through a little more, or I've got my perception of the system a little off. In the Scorpio, the TSC operates independently from the A/C and the thermostat. The thermostat and other calculated variables determine when the A/C fan comes on. Doesn't matter what the engine te...

Re: "A/C electric fan on when A/C Clutch on"

OK... I'm gonna' guess it will depend on the temp activation point of the thermostatic clutch (TSC). E.g., if it's 185 and the original A/C thermostat generally activates the fan at a higher temp (sans special activation modes for icing, etc.), then the TSC is engaging until the A/C drops the post-r...
