[DMCForum] Re: SSI: 2nd Edition



My DeLo was an eBay purchase as well (as were 3 of my 5 Lincolns).

Every used car goes through a shakedown period. Old systems, many of
which have sat idle to the point of age deterioration alone, *WILL*
fail. Questionable engineering and low quality manufacturing *WILL
NOT* stand the test of time. Any purchaser who fails to expect such is
not being realistic.

Unfortunately, the only way to discover what has survived on a vehicle
is to put it into service. Some failures will be vehicle specific (for
example: broken dash clocks on just 2 of my Lincolns, one of which
only recently stopped). Others are endemic to the entire marque -- not
a single automatic headlight dimmer still works on any of my cars, nor
on the cars of anyone I have corresponded with. It's an arduous
process to debug a used car, but what else can an owner do?

Congratulations on being immortalized in print. I got a copy of SSI(2)
for Xmas too. Read the whole book in one sitting.
