Default 75 Scout II

I'm going to try to do a better job of documenting my build. I recently posted how I finally got a chance to work on the Scout since getting back, but I didn't put any updates yet.

First, I couldn't get the original carb (2210) to idle and run smooth and after reading loads of your guys' comments on 2300 recommendations, I bought one. I was a bit afraid of the source....it was ebay. However, I took the risk for $200 and it turned out fine. I can crank her every time now.

Next......the lights and brakes. But first, order a manual from IH Parts America (thank you )

manual received now on to the next problem....

Lights:
I worked on the lights for three hours the other night. The time flies when I'm working on the Scout. Luckily, the wife has been doing her homework, so she hasn't minded.....yet. Anyway, the po put a trailer harness in line with the original harness. He removed the left rear tail/park light connector. I ripped all of the trailer harness out an attempted to rewire the rear lights. I now have all running lights, head lights, and partial brake lights. The rear left one is still not working. The tail light works, but not the brake light. I haven't checked the reverse lights yet, but that will come. I noticed the light switch on the dash is a bit flaky. I have to wiggle a bit to get the running lights and dash lights to come on.

Brakes:
okay, I bled the brakes and no luck....the brake pedal does not want to return. It will stop, but it ain't safe. So, back to the forum. I found a entry that stated to verify the booster is getting the proper vacuum. Will do that soon.

Break break (more to come)

It's difficult to see in this photo, but the lower right of the truck (where the bumper should be) there are some disconnected wires and you can see some of the ones hanging down on the left side. Temporarily fixed now....except for that left brake light.

Brakes....

I checked the vacuum at the hose coming from the manifold and I'm getting decent pull. There is one last check I've read in a thread on here (by vancopbs--thanks), but I'm breaking down and getting a new master cylinder and booster. I mean it's the brakes....newer is better parts are set to arrive tomorrow. Pics to come.

Seats....

Speaking of breaks......my son (6 yr old) tested my wife's reflexes today by kicking a football at her face to which she deflected with her hand. She successfully protected her beautiful face, but at the expense of her left pinky. It's broken. Why the hell am I telling you this story???? After returning from the doc's, lo and behold I see a guy cleaning out his garage with the seats below. Took them off of him for $40. They even had all the motors attached. Don't get me wrong....my wife's pinky is very important to me. However, I've been eyeing these seats for a while now. More to come....

I'm sorry to tell you this, but all these pics you keep referring to aren't there. The way I like to attach images in a thread is by scrolling down to the user tools below the message box and selecting "manage attachments". That way they automatically display in the body of the message rather than as a bothersome click link at the bottom of the message.

Thanks scoutboy74. That's odd that the pics didn't show. They show'd when I previewed the post. I'll try your suggestion.

They're all there now. None were this morning. Not sure what that was all about.

I noticed that my album where my photos were (in my account) was private. I changed the album to public. That would make sense why I could see them in preview mode.

Thanks again.

Uhoh! I've got a question. After I made the adjustment on the booster, I started to re-assemble the linkage/lever assembly to the new booster (pic below). Is this lever supposed to pivot freely on the pin? Mine does not budge at all.
