Re: Scorpio heater core replacement

Are we turning into a classic car owners club? PeterP11c We are an underappreciated classic car owners club. Yes - there is plenty of head turning. I've pulled up into a parking lot and had a young motorhead comment "Wow - that's a rare car!". But the Hagerty valuation tool sums things up. Take pri...

I could use a spare EATC if the price is right.

Re: Will the real Scorpio Cam specs please stand up?

I'm confused by the (what it appears to me) as insane duration numbers and that it is listed as mechanical which I take as meaning not hydraulic. I am also confused a little..so I did a little reading. European Autocar magazine had an article in Dec 86 regarding the new 2.9L and it stated the follo...

Re: Will the real Scorpio Cam specs please stand up?

That Kent cam seems like a proper replacement. Off course it is from the UK so depending on where you are at the shipping could be expensive.

Re: $400 Key Fob???!!!

The thing at the hardware store, that lights up when you put your key near it, just detects an rfid. So they can tell you if it is a chip key. The chip is really small and the key may just look like an ordinary key. I agree with you guys alarms going off or even just chirping is annoying. On my Mom...

Re: a4ld won't shift into overdrive

It was always my understanding that you could drive an old car around town just fine if the lockup converter didn't work. It would drive just fine and shift through the gears like normal but since it didn't completely lock up your fuel mileage would suffer. Usually that didn't justify spending the ...

Re: Will the real Scorpio Cam specs please stand up?

Thanks Brokencase. Why are they (Scorpio 2.9 cams) so hard to find new? None on EBay.co.uk or de Steve I think your best bet is to find a cam grinder who can grind to spec OR search for an aftermarket 2.9 Ranger cam with the longest duration you can find. Perhaps Camcraft H39-0606? https://www.camc...

Re: a4ld won't shift into overdrive

Bob - that vacuum switch releases torque converter lockup. It is not associated with overdrive. It should trip at 15 inches of vacuum. As far as I am aware the torque converter can lockup in 3rd or OD. But here is the description from the EVTM... The torque converter will lock up hydraulically when ...

Re: Will the real Scorpio Cam specs please stand up?

I believe they are. However, the important point here is to indicate that the the Scorpio cam is different than that in the Ranger.

Re: Power steering issue

The high pressure line is the one that has the metal connection to the power steering pump. It then transitions into rubber as it goes down to the rack (where it transitions back to metal). You're not going to be able to buy one of these hose assemblies as a new replacement. Unless someone has an NO...

Re: Power steering issue

How about this hypothetical... The rebuilt pump and rack were actually fine. But what if there is a problem with the 30 year old high pressure hose? For example the hose internally collapsed or, even worse, chunks of hose are breaking away and getting forced into the rack. That would mean that the p...
