Re: Scorpio Lumbar Replacement?

Nice job documenting this. I saved the heating elements from some Scorpio seats I junked. I think I'll clip off the quick-connectors and toss them. It wouldn't make sense to use 30+ year-old stuff when new technology is available for not that much $.

100 ft ladder would be great for cutting tree branches. But where on earth would you park the thing when not in use...
Don't get me thinking how to justify the purchase of one! Indeed the challenge would be storing the vehicle.

Re: No adapter Big Brakes

If your OCD kicks in, a 35/64" drill bit will drill a (just barely) large enough hole for a 14mm bolt, removing as little material as possible from the XR or Scorpio spindle caliper mounting ears.

Re: Real Firetruck BBQ Grill Tailgate Food Truck

I wonder if the ladder is still functional? Old fire trucks just go begging for buyers. We recently sold our 1985 Pierce for $3500. The 1992 E-One went for the minimum bid of $2000 and was just scrapped.

Re: No adapter Big Brakes

Thanks for looking into the earlier stuff. I'm curious on the difference in the offset. I mocked this up tonight trying both the 2005 and 2012 Focus calipers with a 2005 Focus rotor. I didn't measure it exactly, but the 2005 bracket needs about .500" spacing to get it centered over the rotor vs. .2...

Re: Scorpio Lumbar Replacement?

JOC on the rear hatch glass, how long did you feel safe to let it sit before driving? Or was that during a rebuild where you could let it sit for a few days? Yeah, it sat for several days before I water-tested it. Unfortunately, it failed the initial water-proof test but it wasn't as tough as I tho...

Re: Scorpio Lumbar Replacement?

Yep, good stuff. Didn't think of it for auto seam sealing, but that's a great tip. It works about as well as the automotive specialty brands at about a third of the cost. I've also used it to glue in automotive glass. The Scorpio rear window is bonded/sealed in place with just S30. Given the size o...

Re: Hub Assembly Early vs. Later Versions

Thanks for documenting this with pics. I had noticed this years ago - there might have been a discussion about it back in the IMON list days. What I also found was that there was a servie bulletin with another update very late in the game - possibly even after production ended in December 1988 and s...

Loctite has a new shoe repair glue https://www.loctiteproducts.com/en/products/specialty-products/specialty/shoe_glue.html I was a little surprised that it comes in such a small tube. I've successfully used Loctite PL S30 Black Polyurethane Roof and Flashing Sealant for repairing shoes and seam sea...
