You can always make a sleeve, or bore out another pulley with a smaller hole to the right size, etc, etc...

In fact the whole art form of alternator swaps is built upon shims, washers, spacers and sleeves!
Understood. But the less of that ^^^ required, the better.

Re: Conversion from Clutch-based Mechanical Fan to Electric

XR alternator, 17 mm; Scorpio should be identical: That's what I was thinking, but I wanted to examine the Scorpio alternator more thoroughly so I pulled the one from the parts car today. To my surprise, the threaded section of the shaft measures 14mm. It's possible that the threaded section is ste...

Not sure about the shaft diameter on the Bosch.
I just tried to measure one with the pulley still on it. It would seem it's probably 16mm.

Here we go...I think the link below shows the right pinout. The Pathfinder is the same as the one in the middle.

Nice job on the research. What's the year range on the Pathfinder?

Re: Rear Wheel Well Liner alternative

Any pics? I'm curious how they look. I didn't bother to take any pics. Next time I've got a rear wheel off I'll try to remember to have the camera handy. As for the quality of the stock liners, I'm inclined to agree with Jeff's theory that the '87 cars got crap liners. My '89 parts car and the '89 ...

Re: Conversion from Clutch-based Mechanical Fan to Electric

I'm not at all adverse to an alternator upgrade. Both the Brat and F-150 are upgraded to 3G units. I wouldn't mind running the same alternator on the Scorpio, but if something from a Toyota (or whatever) swaps in with less effort, that's fine too. For reference, here's a link about using the Contour...

Re: New to Merkurs - Where is this oil coming from?

I ordered the motorcraft one from Rockauto. Are you sure it's the CORRECT Motorcraft one? What is the part#? How would I even check the sending unit? If it's wet with oil it's a good chance it's leaking. I would be blipping the throttle and see if you see any oil leaking. With as much as you've got...

Conversion from Clutch-based Mechanical Fan to Electric

I've never been a fan of clutch-based fans - one of the first projects I did on my '91 F-150 was converting to an electric fan - I used the dual-fan setup from a V6 Contour/Cougar/Mystique. And so I'm planning to do the same to the Scorpio, as time permits. No urgency, as the current one is working ...

Re: Sunroof Drains - Where are they

Just keep in mind, it's very often NOT one of the 4 drains being clogged that is the interior leak cause, but rather, a tired and dried out seal that surrounds the sunroof glass. The water gets by the seal and eventually leaks overhead, often rusting out the sunroof metal bracing when left unchecked...

Unfortunately, correct. It's sometimes tough to get things done in an all-volunteer organization.

Does anyone know the brand of bearing and part number?
It's not an "off-the-shelf" part that you're going to find from a general bearing supplier.

What are you guys using for Panel bonding adhesives? If you can post a name/manufacturer and part number that would be great. This is perhaps the best stuff on the market right now for this type of application... https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/3M-Impact-Resistant-Structura...
