We're back from the nats! The Scout took first place in class and a second place in engineering. I was very happy with the reactions we got from the folks viewing the Scout at the show. Those remarks alone made it all worth it. Soon as I get caught up around here I'll get all my pics downloaded and post up the end of the build.

Sorry for the delay in getting the rest of the build posted up.

Last pics showed us dropping down the tub and cage. From there we started running hoses and wiring.







Brake lines were made and the adjustable brake proportioning valve was mounted.



The temp sensor for the gauge was mounted in the back of the thermostat housing as there was no where else to place it.



Adjusting/checking the belt tension.

The dash after paint. The a/c vents, a/c-heater control, and auxiliary switch's were installed.





The vintage air hvac system was installed under the dash and hoses were hooked up.





The engine oil cooler and lines were installed next.

And now for a turn of events. After installing all of the coolant hoses Darren performed a dry pressure test of the cooling system to verify no leaks. Well were we surprised to find that the cooling system would not hold pressure. In fact it sounded like it had a pretty decent leak and it was coming from inside the valve cover area. After some more detective work we found the leak. After all these years the passenger side cylinder head had a porous casting and was now showing up.





With the cooling system under pressure you can see the geyser of oil spray up as we searched for the leak.



So off came the cylinder head. A quick trip over to huthcinson racing and the head was fixed.

With the engine back together we continued on with the build. The gauges were installed in the dash and then the dash was installed in the Scout. Darren then began the lengthy task of wiring the Scout with one of our kwikwire 22 circuit vehicle wiring kits.







Most of the relays and fuses were mounted where the glovebox would normally be. Basically every circuit has a 'fail-safe' built into it and runs off of relays.

It took nearly a full day to make the steering column cover out of two pieces of steel.



More electronics were placed under the cowl of the Scout.



Darren built a cold air intake out of a piece of 4" mandrel bent exhaust.

A transmission tunnel cover was made.



More of the miles of wiring that went into the Scout.



We got the partsmike superarms installed that were on back order and found there wasn't enough clearance between the tierod and oilpan so some modification of the tierod and draglink were needed.

At this point we were a day from having to load the Scout on a trailer and send it off to ohio for the Scout nationals so not a whole lot of pics were taken towards the end of the build.
