Re: Having problems logging in? Read this thread

merkurclub.net/forum works just fine. As if nothing changed when logging in. merkurclub.com instant redirects to merkurclub.net, which is seamless...however the forum link at the top of that main page still sends visitors to merkurclub. com /forum - which will not let you log in.

Re: Alternate Alternator Upgrade

Available for a broader range of years, and probably the same case sizing, is the 110A alternator from these applications. It is also 2-wire.

Nissan PATHFINDER 04 from 12/03
INFINITI G35 03 - 08
INFINITI FX SERIES 03-08 3.5L (6 cylinder)

Re: Alternate Alternator Upgrade

If I'm to believe what's posted in an eBay ad, here's what is cross-referenced as using the same alternator: For a 2004 PATHFINDER thru 11/03 2004 Nissan Pathfinder LE Sport Utility 4-Door 3.5L 3498CC V6 GAS DOHC Naturally Aspirated For a 2004 PATHFINDER thru 11/03 2004 Nissan Pathfinder SE Sport Ut...

ShreddRRz Food Truck Returns for 2019

The ShreddRRz (http://shreddrrz.com) Food Truck for Saturday night at the hotel was so well received, we've invited them back for Merkurs at Carlisle 2019! This year will be even better, as every paid-up MCA member will get the "Full Monty", including self-serve Nacho bar, pulled pork, pulled chicke...

Re: Alternate Alternator Upgrade

Yea, but the Scorpio schematic does not show a fuseable link on the big wire. Might be possible to pull the big wire & fusabile link from the donor at the bone yard? But if the gauge of wire in the Scorpio is adequete, just use it. It's harder to adapt the three wire. 130 amps should be plenty. I t...

Re: Alternate Alternator Upgrade

Thanks for the additional details and schematic. Agreed that any modern alternator should be wired up with a fuse. Ford used dual-line fusible links on the 3G alternator in the 90's; later on a 175A Mega fuse was used. Looking at some more of the Nissan/Infiniti alternators, it appears that maybe th...

Re: Will a complete Scorpio rear end bolt into a XR4ti?

An interesting discussion.... In the past I'd heard about the 6-degree beams, but never really understood it. Now I do. Any thoughts on why the factory beam is 18 degrees? Was it just under-engineered, or is there some reason why you might want a street car to have a different arc? I would think bot...

Re: Saginaw Power Steering Pump Conversion

Here's a thread on the Explorer forum where someone put the same Saginaw P-series pump w/ remote reservoir in a 4L Explorer. Much of the install is the same, but some is different. https://www.explorerforum.com/forums/index.php?threads/saginaw-power-steering-pump-conversion-journey.417083/ The one n...

Re: Saginaw Power Steering Pump Conversion

And here's a shot of the pump attached to it's native bracket (Chevy Astro). I had thoughts that perhaps I could save the $30 for the adapter bracket by cutting this one up and fabbing it into an adapter bracket. Short story, it's a no-go.

I grabbed a couple more pics from a Bronco site where someone did the Saginaw swap into a V8. I mostly grabbed these just to show the orientation of the adapter bracket without the pulley in the way....

what was your part source? Your's came with the electrical plug which would make the swap much cleaner than bodging generic spade connectors
Sourcing from the junkyard could yield the quick-connector pig-tail.

Your pictures above are the Nissan variant, it has the curved cooling slots. The Hitachi variant has the straight slots. Otherwise I think they are the same.
Any thoughts on whether one is "better"?

Re: Alternate Alternator Upgrade

Just be sure to get the two connector type. The connectors are on ebay as well. Get the connector from the junkyard if you get the alternator that way. For sure. That's one of the reasons I like shopping at the junkyard for this sort of stuff - the related "extras" come along for free. :mrgreen:

Re: 11" Brake Rotor

Nice find. I'm not sure of the offset for the 05-07 Brackets, so you're in uncharted territory. I would hope it's the same, but I've never had a pair. The easy thing to do would be to just bore the holes out on the knuckle for the 14mm bolts and then it's a simple thing to spec complete 2016 Focus ...

<I'm cutting and pasting this one back into this thread. Note that I've split the topic off regarding the "Alternate Alternator Upgrade" to it's own thread. Please continue that discussion there, and leave this one specifically related to the fan change. Thanks, Brad > ------------------------------...
