Re: 1976 Scout Starting Problems

Since you were able to start it when you got it, I doubt this problem is why it was parked. Were you able to get it to turn over using the key? Being able to jump the starter says the starter is...

Re: 1976 Scout Starting Problems

It doesn't appear to have melted. I had one of those do the same thing sitting in a box in the garage- made a mess of some other stuff in the box. Whatever epoxy they used to pot the electronics just...

Re: Fuel hose sizes

If the 2" filler hose from the gas tank to the filler neck has never been replaced you probably want to order one of those as well. They tend to get pretty brittle after 40 or so years.

Re: Vaper Recovery Chamber 74 Scout 2

It is an expansion tank. The gas from underground tanks is typically much colder than ambient temperature, so if you fill the tank completely full, the gas can expand, and the expansion tank gives it...

Re: Ignition Switch Culprit?

Can you watch the actuator rod while you are turning the key? If the rod is not moving, the problem is probably the sector gear and other parts in the top of the steering column. If the rod looks...

Re: 74 scout 2 lock position for key power stiil on?

If I recall correctly, the actual ignition switch is located down near the bottom of the steering column inside the truck. There is a long skinny rod type thingy that goes from the key lock in the...

Re: Scout 80 no start with key

Ok, that is still pointing to the switch. Since you can manually jump the hot wire coming into the switch to one of the other positions on the switch and get the starter to work, it sounds like the...

Re: Scout 80 no start with key

Hi Willy, is the new switch you installed an ignition switch, or just an on off switch? Needs at least on, off, and start positions to engage the starter. Another thing to check is the wire going...

Re: Turn Signal indicator constant on.

Re: Can't stop from Pinging

Yeah I know, but running higher octane wont hurt anything but your pocket book. The pinging/detonation on the other hand can do extensive damage if allowed to continue. Adding a bottle of octane...

Re: 73 Scout grinding while shifting

Pull the plug under the arrow. When full should just start dripping out. Passenger/right side of tranny. Drain plug is the lower plug. May want to check your clutch adjustment as well.

Re: Can't stop from Pinging

Might have missed it, but what octane fuel are you running, and have you tried any octane booster? If you look in one of the owners manuals, they recommend "regular gasoline of 92 octane or better".

Re: 258 to T19 bellhousing wanted

Don't have a spare one, but this is what you are looking for. C2 421664. You will also need a special pilot bushing, or a sleeve that gets stuck on the tip of the transmissions input shaft.

Re: New guy need shackle advice

If you go with 30" tires, I would go with the stock length shackles. If the PO did not install caster shims or do a cut and turn when he installed the long shackles, you are probably running about 4...

Re: LEAN DOWN ON DRIVER SIDE

Re: tips on bearing pre load

You might want to look into Stage 8 DNA-44 X-lock spindle nuts. Kind of expensive at around 75 bucks a spindle, but you only buy them once, and never have to worry about those stupid bend over tabs...

Re: '73 Scout 2 - 345 will not start

You might also want to check out what is going on over near the firewall bulkhead connectors by the heater box. Looks like someone got creative over there and added a ballast resistor. I'd follow the...

Re: '73 Scout 2 - 345 will not start

If that is gas on the plugs, I would say it is probably flooded, should be able to tell by smelling them. Changing the oil won't help. Pulling all the plugs and letting the cylinders dry out might...

Re: '73 Scout 2 - 345 will not start

Those plugs are pretty wet, so Scoutboy is dead on with checking to make sure you are getting spark. Might want to check the point gap while you are at it, the block that rubs on the distributor cam...

Re: 69 800A - Post Power Steering Swap Steering Wheel

Re: 1980 Scout II swap from diesel to gas

With the wide T19s 6.32:1 first gear, the 3.54s will do fine for everything except extreme rock crawling, and they will also make freeway driving more bearable. If you go with anything larger than 33...

Re: Yes Another Tire Size Question

I had 32 X 11.5s mounted on 10 inch rims with a RC 2.5" lift on my 75 Scout. They never hit on the street, but definitely hit in the back of the rear fender wells when off road. If you just stay on...
