Default Re: I have a running scout

i have a laptop but need to get a cable, the fuel is a nice cone. the o2 sensor is new the temp sensor is not. would running the esc and knock make that much of a difference instead of the bypass wire?

i was having the exact same problem. i didnt think there would be that much difference running either configuration you mentioned. turned out i was getting air somewhere in my fuel line. just a thought.

no! by tying the signal high your just telling the ecm the motor is not pinging. (i.e knock)

are you running a stock 350 chip? there are 4 letters / numbers on the prom that will tell us if its a 350 chip. when i first started i had a 454 ecm and had issue trying to get it to work as it would dump fuel like a mofo. next would be to make sure you have 305 or 350 injectors vs 454 again they would dump more fuel then you motor can handle. there are numbers on the top of the injectors. very small, faint numbers at that.

did you set the tps throttle positioning sensor to .57 volts?
bill has a startup procedure on here. the laptop cable is what i used to see what mine was doing.

i can bring the cable and laptop to hollister.

i need to go through the start up procedure again and double check everything. i kind of have a bastard setup. i have a sbc400 with a bb tbi, i am not sure what injectors are in it. i will go out and see. the ecm is from a 350. i missed the part about setting the tps voltage because i never touched that.

i am not sure if i am going to make it to hollister, for sure i dont think the scout will.

Default Re: I have a running scout

ok so last night my scout almost burned to the ground, i was ready to set it ablaze. i go out to drive it to pull some old fence post since it is soft out. i have 2 flats issed: get them aired up and scoot around to the back field, as i get out to hook up a strap the scout sputters out and dies. wth, i was pretty sure it had fuel i had just put a few gallons in it when i got it all running. so i am cussing and fighting it, it would start then run for a second and die, over and over. bang there go the keys into the windshield, now i need a new one. i go to get some gas and all my cans are empty, great. crap is flying everywhere now, i was not in the mood to deal with it. if some one had 100bucks here last night they could have had it. so i left it out in the field overnight until i cooled off.
so this morning i got some more gas and put in it, fired right up. of course it is out in the field now with 2 flat tires, screw it i will drive it like that. get it around to the front and back in the drive way. i go in the garage and fire up the air compressor to fill the tires, turn back and there is a giant puddle of tranny fluid. i just cannot win. pissed off i came inside before i do something stupid like cut it up. doing a little research i found where it is leaking, the stupid down shift cable hole that i do not have a cable for. i did not know that the th350 needs a kick down cable, i thought thats what the vacuum mod on the back of it was for. ok easy fix i hope.
now i am trying to figure out why when i hammer down it floods out and dies. i have 2 different injectors in it, and 1 sprays fine the other just dumps. i hate this damn scout, but would be mad if i did not have one. i just want it to be done so i can drive it. after i save up a few grand for tires.

wow! that'll sure teach that douchebag of a windshield to let the air out of your tires and fiddle with your tbi. i bet it thinks twice before it ever messes with you like that again.

the scout has been getting some much needed attention lately, i have 90% of the new cage tacked together and most of the wiring put back in. i had a vacuum leak at the factory tbi adapter i was using so i just made a flat plate adapter and it seems to run a lot better. now i just need to have a ps hose made to go from an o-ring pump to the flare fitting on the box.

looks good. for the passengers sitting in rear bench seat, the last photo works. maybe adding a gusset or two from the vertical tape to the top tube.

my own experience being involved in a barrel roll down a trail in hollister last year, tells me that the rear cargo area, behind the rear bench seat, won't get to much damage. unless one ends up end over end type of a roll.

i think if for added security, for the cargo area, the second photo in combination with the last photo works. end result would triangulate more so of what you already have tacked inplace. also, not sure how you have the cage setup right above the front seats (roof area of cage), can't really tell from the photos, but just from my own experience, i just might suggest triangulating that area of the cage between the two front hoops

how did ya do the bottom half of the front hoop below the dash? i ask due to the one in my scout was very poorly designed by one of the previouse owners before i got ahold of it. i currently cannot open glove box and the e-brake handle was cut off to accomidate the front hoop.

i plan on completely re-doing and redesigning my current cage
