Re: Day dreaming about a 4.0L in a Scorpio

What transmission are you contemplating anyway? From one of of your forum links... " did my 4.0 Swap on an '87 from a'93 Explorer donor and I would not recommend doing it that way for anyone else... It took a solid three weeks (80hour weeks) to combine the two harnesses to make everything work ...

Argh.. Don't think groove is possible. When I look a a picture of the 3.3L piston there is not enough room.

The only way is to steel bush the 2.9L conrod little end and press the pin in. Tricky but doable...

Re: Day dreaming about a 4.0L in a Scorpio

I've been "re-figuring" the stroker... Use Chrysler 3.3L pistons instead. Eliminates having to deck the block and machine the manifold as a consequence of the decking. But the piston wrist pin holes need to be reamed and honed out 0.040 to the 2.9 wrist pin size. Correction - Bush and hon...

Re: Day dreaming about a 4.0L in a Scorpio

If you were doing the automatic then I think you would be fine with the 2.9L flexplate.

But with the manual I am less certain. I think you might want to get the whole rotating assembly balanced.

Re: Windshield Group Buy

Even if you could get 25 individuals to purchase, I can't imagine it would be cost effective for a company to do the limited run.

But I could be wrong. I am certainly no glass expert.

How about someone getting a quote from this place?

Re: Day dreaming about a 4.0L in a Scorpio

In the proper perspective, the idea is actually to minimize the amount of work. The base assumption is that a top-end service is needed - i.e. rebuild or rebuilt heads installed. With that as a given, it's not much more work to just install a 4L which is a much more reliable engine. My point exactl...

Re: Day dreaming about a 4.0L in a Scorpio

I didn't post the V6 book. I found that link over at the RangerStation forum. So I'm not the guilty one! To be honest..it's NOT THAT GREAT of a book. It's pretty general. The "Rebuilding the 4.0L OHV" pdf is very informative. How can I get it to you? I do have years of collecting good pdf'...

Re: Scorpio 3d models up on thingiverse...

Oh yeah... and by the way...

It goes without saying that all Scorpio owners should check the condition of their Steering bushing.
They are 30+ years old and they don't last forever..

Re: Scorpio 3d models up on thingiverse...

Curious as to how you modeled the steering column bushing; did you remove an original one from your car? Does that 175 download number mean 175 Scorpio owners are on Thingiverse (hah)? YMMV I don't think 175 downloads means 175 Scorpio owners. I suspect that some of it is automated scrapers that st...

Re: Scorpio 3d models up on thingiverse...

The thingiverse website has had issues recently. I posted a DIY e-bike battery case a while back and it took 2 months to show up in my personal account or to show up in a site search. But I could still post a link in a forum and people could get to it that way. Then a few days ago it showed up in my...
