Well, added another vehicle to my collection!  A Marc Xll Scrambler. It's all original, and not in bad shape.  The tires are the Firestone Flotation, and are in real nice shape too! Their is a odd-ball  tire that came with it, a ( High Flex by B.F. Goodrich )  never saw one of those before. Anyone out there know what they were used on? let me know.

Got most of the Grease off. with a Grease Remover.   Did a small spot with the Sandblaster to see how that would work for taking the rest off. Works Great!

Steve sent in these pics of his Scrambler Gotchas



Well, it's been a little over three years since I got my Scrambler. I started to do the restoration, then left it sit. I'm picking up where I left off.  Started to sandblast the bearing flanges and axles. Here are some before and after pics.  The bearings are pretty much all shot! I found New outer flange plate seals. the inner bearing flange housings are ok, and they take standard bearings, but the bearings require a rubber bearing cover / grommet , which I haven't found yet. I may have to find  replacement flange housings. 

I'm going to use a T-20 rather then the original transmission, and a JLO 400cc engine. Hope to have it done for the 2005 ANNUAL EASTERN AMPHIBIOUS 6 & 8 WHEELER JAMBOREE; July 14,15 and 16.

Put new seals in outside flange plates.

Also got all new inside bearings, going to pick up outside axle bearings tomorrow.



Made new cork seals for outer bearing flanges

cork.jpg (321945 bytes)

Couldn't find the rubber grommets for the inner bearings, so I used a silicon / rubber sealant.

Installed all the axles... Next week I'm going to start on the installation of the T-20

I painted the inside in a few spots because of the fiberglass, it was rubbing off on me when I would reach inside. I'm going to paint it all in a few days, also need to clean out a little bit of the sand which is still in the bottom from the sand blasting process

Here's a couple of shots. of the JLO 400 that I'm going to be using in the Scrambler.

Did a quick sealing spray. Need to do a few good coats yet.

Mock Up!

Got the Engine and Tranny in. Still need to do a lot of adjusting before I mount everything permanently. 

engineS.jpg (139007 bytes)  engineF.jpg (135872 bytes)


Had to make some changes with the engine and Tranny set up; had some clearance issues. Still having alignment problems. Got it as close as I could. The body is so warped, it's hard to get everything to line up correctly.

Next issue to tackle is the jack-shaft. I'm using 3/4" 3/16 keyed shaft and pillow blocks.




Did a little more work on the Scrambler.

Waiting for the jack-shafts to arrive.

engtran.jpg (123653 bytes)



Still waiting for the jack-shafts, so I had a old piece of 3/4" tubing that I'm using to mock up the shafts. Had too cut down the hubs on the # 41 sprockets to get them to fit.

Got the Jack-shafts done #50 chain from the t-20 to the Jack-shafts then down to # 41 chain which is the original setup. Need too make chain adjusters between the t-20 and Jack-shafts. Also made shifter assembly.

Finished the chain adjusters. Bought # 41 adjuster sprockets with the bearings already pressed in and used scrap parts too fabricate the brackets. Used old bearing axle from one of the bogie wheels of my Trackster too make sprocket mounting shafts.

Started to work on the Scrambler again. Ran all the lines. Fuel, throttle, choke. Will take some pictures tomorrow and post them. Still need to run some chains, finish the exhaust; that will complete all the major things. 



Pretty much done with the Scrambler. Just one problem with one of the Chain tensioners.
