Default 72 Ole Yeller

Well, since I started doing some wrenching on this 72 Scout II, I figured I just might keep it and start up this build thread. I have been eye balling this thing for about 10 years before I got ahold of it, and never knew who owned it. The short version of story is that the guy who owned it stopped in front of my man cave and we got to talking. And he towed it down here only to find out the transmission has gone sour. No forward gears what so ever. But, reverse worked just fine. The 304 ran great but couldn't actually drive it due to a funked up trans, and I aint driving it backwards around town lol




This is after a bath the weekend I paid $500 it. No top and missing passenger seat. And the driver seat was so beat to crap that the spring cushions poked ya in the but when ya sit in it.



**edite**
as a side note, the typical p.o. Hack work seems to be limited so far in comparison of what I have seen in other rigs. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that some one did a Dana 44(with discs) axle swap into this ole yeller. Also a new rear drive shaft has bee installed. The front drive shaft appears to be oem stock. There is also a 1.5" body lift. It's also rolling on 33"x12.5x15 shoes. And what appears to be stock leafs.

Last weekend I cleaned out the front half of the tub.



And the ole p.o. Virus hacked up seat frames going into scrap pile. I currently have another decent set of frames that are sitting on the rear bench seat in the above photo.


Over all, the floor is in fair condition. Even considering this rig has been sitting out in rain and shine for a number of years with out a top. Some surface rust. I have seen a hole lot worse, even on newer scouts.

Along with cleaning out the front of the inner cab last weekend, I drained the trans fluid. Ended up with a good whiff of burnt fluid as soon as I cracked the pan



I spent this weekend pulling out the tranny and transfer case.




I'm kinda loving my over head electric hoist. Which I'm currently using to hold up the back end of the motor


I good cleaning of the mess and then I can start pulling things apart. Since money is funny at the moment and monopoly funds don't exactly work very well, my shopping list of parts will be shrinking somewhat in December and first part of February. So this will be a drawn out rebuild of the trans

Slowly moving along as I start taking care of the p.o. Neglected general maintenance items, like changing fluids. Drained oil out of both axles and just finished buttoning up the rear-end with fresh oil. Along with an added bonus. All I need to say is = awesome





Now it's time to give the front end the same treatment. And since I currently have the tranny/transfer case out sitting on the bench, the motor oil pan will be pulled in favor of a new gasket and fresh oil & filter.

Yeah, diamond in the ruff. Will be nice once I'm actually driving it. The motor itself runs great at idle. Since the auto trans has gone sour before I got ahold of it, I never was able to actually drive it. Probably be about February when I'm able to finish up rebuilding the trans and transfer case. The t.c. May not need a rebuild, but knowing how the ole p.o. Virus May kick in, I May end up sticking my foot up my own butt if I don't do anything to it while it's out.
