Having totted up the replies in this section i reckon only 29 (?) cars so far have been noted on this thread.
 
If you have a Scorpio can you let us know to help raise the total?
 
Scorpio's for sale are still out there and judging by the number of comments along the "wish I still had one - never had anything so comfy - best car I ever had - wish I still had mine" all the ones for sale should be sold by the weekend.

Still have 2 Scorpios although mine is off the road since 2017 due to some idiot damaging the front bumper and not having had time to get it patched up.  
 
The other half is still using her Loden Green 2.0 daily and although needing wheel arches etc doing it's going strong.

Seem to recall seeing a Loden green one in a car park in Portsmouth some years ago.

Thanks everyone, as we say in the North West the car is "mollycoddled"
 
Mr Nunnspoet -- how did you fare with your water pump problems?

Good morning Tony.
 
Thank you for your query and your politeness.  Cool.
 
Well "buycarparts" sent the wrong Water Pump and it took quite a lot to persuade them of that fact.  However eventually they agreed that it was the wrong Pump and asked me to return it saying that if after examination all was well that they would refund me the cost.  At the same time they said that they are now sure that they can provide the correct Water Pump for my 24 valve Scorpio Estate and would I like to buy it.
 
I managed to get the wrong pump returned (they sent a return postage label) last week.  At the same time I reported this to them and said that I would like to buy the replacement Pump.  So far I have heard nothing from them.
 
So there you go.  Maybe they have the correct spec. but not the actual Pump,  Huh
 
Who would want to own a Scorpio?  I would, I would.  And I do - two of them!
 
Best regards

Hi Mike
 
I recently changed my water pump, the hardest part I found was removing the fans as I couldn't undo one of the electrical connectors so I just let the fans rest on the floor with the wire still connected. (does that make sense?) The remainder of the job was pretty easy although I gained a few scraped knuckles!!
 
I had a used spare pump so took a chance that it was working OK and up to now everything is good. I did however purchase a new gasket.
 
As I said on another thread I contacted SP Water Pumps in Warrington, spoke to John who said he could definitely refurbish any pump in a couple of days and offered a p&p service if necessary.
 
I do intend to have my leaking pump refurbished, just haven't got round to it yet.

Mike/ Tony.
I have just spoken to Jackie at SP and she is going to do some before and after pictures of any Scorpio pumps which she gets in. I have given her my Email so that she can send them to me.  
Once that happens I'll create a post on here so that the info we have is here for all time. Hopefully this will solve the age old problem of members trying to get the correct one.
