      Hello guys,

      I love American cars, I've already own Cadillac SRX V6 3.6 and JEEP Grd Cherokee V8 4.7

      Now I bought an Explorer, first generation, and will try to take it back to life. It has problem with sugar in the fuel tank and don't start 1or2 years.....

      Today I put out the fuel tank and :

      Wow, the body and paint looks to be in excellent condition!

      This would be a great time to inspect the gas filler tube for cracks, they are known to c wrk with age.

      I knew there were different headlights on some of the European versions of our first gens, but I didn't realize that the tail lights differed as well.

      Truck looks to be in really good condition! Can't wait to see what else you do to it!

      M@X33 I would not change out those tail lights to all red. Its illegal!! I lived in Munich Germany for 7 years and saw many Ford Explorers!!! Its the law in EU that the turn signals must be Orange! In Germany if you get pulled over for speeding etc.... your fine is determined by how much money you make "salary" per year. I dont know if France does that? Person I worked with got a speeding ticket cost him $1700 euros. Driving a car in europe is a privilege! way different in USA.......

      Godzilla took a piece of that caliper!!

      I would replace all of those brakes -- calipers, rotors, bearings and all. Looks like the prior owner did not take good care of the brake system.

      I see it still has the automatic hubs. Good luck with those, I hope they're still working for you. If they are worn out, you may never be able to get the bearings / hub adjusting nut properly torqued -- leading to premature rotor wear and tire wear. After you get it repaired -- check for wheel play, up, down, left right. If there is any -- you may have done a great job torquing, but the worn out hubs allow too much play.

      I like the European tail lights! But I can see you changing them to the American-style -- it is something different for you. I hope with such an old vehicle, in France you can license it as a "historic vehicle" -- maybe then it is not subject to the French regulations about tail lights. ??

      I don't see any grease on the caliper slide pins and the grooves they ride in. I strongly recommend lubing those points.

      I wouldn't drive it until I lubed the pins. It's very important.
