Yeah Mike no doubt. The stuff they put on the roads out here is criminal. It's not uncommom to see cars and trucks that are only 10 years old with rust eating through the wheel wells. I consider myself extremely lucky to have found one that "appears" to be in such good shape. I have some pics of some trouble spots I've seen already. I should be posting them tomorrow. I am working at the firehouse tomorrow so if it's quiet and we don't have many calls I will be all over the forums tomorrow. I have a bunch of questions about installing seats from a different make/model vehicle, installing an aftermarket edelbrock carb I had rebuilt, power steering/linkage issues etc etc. I just wish the darn weather would break so I can be outside for more than 10 minutes. Also I'm waiting for my service manual to come in the mail. Once I get that I'll get moving.

I have been trying to survive all this socialist shiz without having to sell my beloved Scout II of 18 years.

Like my Scout, I can take more than what most can dish out.

Just found this thread.

Josh shoemaker from martinez, georgia (augusta). New to the scouts all together. I have always like them from when I was a kid. Now that I have gotten the marriage behind me (10 yrs in 09) and a financially stable life I am pursuing the scouts. I have a 61 Scout 80 that I am planning to restore to a dependable daily driver.

About a month or so ago I decided that the Scout that I purchased 2 years ago was time to start working on it. So the first thing I began with was the carb. Found out that it was a 1904 Holley. Typed 1904 Holley into google and came up with this site. From there I found out that the carb I have is not an IH version and someone had been in it changed/destroyed some of the internal parts. Found out what I needed from there.

Then I purchased a line set ticket and found what it came from the factory with and have learned a thing or two about it but still have a bunch more to learn. Glad this site is here, I don't feel like a price can be put on the amount of information or experience that is on here. Thanks

Hi names Mike, I got a 1974 IH 100. Its got in it a 392 that only has about 50,000 origonal miles on it. I picked up this truck as my frist vechicle and I have been doing the best I can to work on the thing, I cant help but like the truck, the engeine and trans are in reall good shape, but because the tuck sat so long out side in Colorado weather it needs some work. I just got done replaceing the front weel barrings and now I pulled the gas tanks out and got them cleaned out, I'm just waiting for the sending units to get here and I should have it back on the road. I have been having some carb trouble lately, it always seems to be running Rich lol. But I figured this site might help with any questions relating to IH and I have plenty to ask.

Well the journey begins now. I have wanted to teach my boys about cars/trucks and watch powerblock on tv. We have watched the series on the 69 Scout. Then on new years day coming back from hunting my alternator went out and I went over to a friends shop to repair it. There was a 69 Scout, needing a yoke replaced.

Now after some haggleing we just purchased the Scout, and have 3.5 years before the first turns 16. Our project begins.

I've been here a while I just never checked in. My Dad has had his Scout my whole life. I remember going four wheeling with him when I was little. During the week my Mom would take us grocery shoping in the Scout. I few years ago my Dad found a 1979 Scout for sale. Long story short I bought it!

I found this site from the binder planet forum. I have been to the IH Parts America store a couple times and have always been very happy with the parts and service!

Hi all, I'm Matt and live in roseville, CA. Been lurking around on this site for a couple of years, but just signed up. I have a 1962 Scout 80 4x4 with the 152 4cly. That is in need of some tlc. So, I will probably end up asking a few questions, but a lot of them have already been answered. This site is a wealth of knowledge! I will be dropping my Scout off at the iho north shop soon and am anxious to see what I am going to be dealing with.

Hello everyone, my name is rob crabtree and I'm located in hayward, CA. I just bought my Scout about a month ago. It's a 1964 Scout 80 with stock drivetrain (152,t90,d18,d27's) I just noticed this thread so I thought I'd stop by and say hello

My name is chris and I bought my first International vehicle about two months ago. My recent purchase of a 77 traveler sent me looking for parts which brought me to this site. This is an awsome web site for all IH owners and will come very useful.
