Re: Project Double D's

I also mocked up a firewall and mounted some gauges and the return regulator. I had also mocked up some angle iron for mounting the radiator and fan shroud. I have come up with a design for the...

Re: Project Double D's

Sometimes I feel like I'm always going backwards a little bit.:mad2:

Re: Project Double D's

Ok, once again it has been a little while since the last post. We are shorthanded at work and a lot of o.t. Has been in the mix (25+ a week) leaving not much wrench time. I look at it this way; at...

Re: New old scout 800 project

Funny how things work out with these scouts. They always start with a "I think I'll change out that leaky carb".

Next thing you know, you got all of your time and most of the family savings...

Re: Project Double D's

Thanks for the compliment.
The cut-n-turn was done to fix the caster angle. Without a cut-n-turn the shims are used to gain some positive angle for the casters, and they are usually run from...

Re: Project Double D's

Now the time consuming part of the whole thing.

I have a crap load of old diamond plate that I have been using for the build and that is what I wanted to build the covers with. I wanted to make...

The vent tubes for the axles needed to be run also.

Re: Project Double D's

Next, I had to run the battery cables. Holes needed to be drilled into the frame as the cables were going inside. I didn’t want cables sticking out, this also allowed for some protection.

Re: Project Double D's

Ok, first thing first the battery cables. This is the part of the build that it was time to think about what I wanted to do about space under the hood. I needed to have something planned before the...

Re: I finally got another Scout!

Cool. I figured utah. We are in the vegas area and the in-laws live in southern utah. Do some hiking there every now and then. I knew it looked familiar. Very nice find on that Scout!

Re: Project Double D's

Yes, that is exactly what I did. I tried 1 nut but the heat shield ended up being to close to the pipe. So, I threaded 2 nuts onto a bolt. I tacked them together, then welded both to the pipe. I...

Re: Project Double D's

Thanks, I really had to think about the possible heat issues partly because of your comments about it earlier. This was not a part of the project I wanted to deal with. I found it hard to cut up a...

Re: Project Double D's

After a quick turn-a-round of 3 days I got the pipes back. I think they turned out pretty good. Here are the pics of the final product hot out of the oven!

Re: Project Double D's

With all of the welding finallized it was time to build the heat shields.
My exhaust was made with 2 1/2in pipe. So, I used some 3in pipe and split it in half to build my shields.
