I'm biased, but I'm very happy with mine (15%). It was 80-85* outside and my fan ran less this year than last year when it was in the 70s iirc. This year it only turned on half a dozen times. Last year it ran about the entire trip. I'll post up in the cooling sub-forum as well.

I like the sound of that. Let me know how much they are, need 2. Neither of my scouts have a smog pump pulley if that matters. My electric fan on the hood sure moves a lot of air out of the engine compartment, but the ability to move more coolant through the motor sounds like a much better option.

Great trip. From the trail to the company to the food, couldn't have asked for a better time. Three of my tires were suffering from bead leaks, thankfully, every one carried some form of air. Other than that, we had an awesome time.

Here are some pics:

Well, I went on the rubicon for the first time!! Not in my Scout unfortunately, but as a passenger with Craig. It was quite a trip! It is really pretty country up there! I wasn’t expecting so much dust on the trail! I really enjoyed seeing the scouts and some other rigs going through the trail!

A special thanks to Craig for letting me tag along!

Also thank you michael dimock for your help fixing the spring center pin when it broke! I was impressed with all the tools you had with you! And of couse your ability to use them

as Jesse said, I do have some video of our trip. I will get it uploaded soon.

A few pre-trip checks at loon lake.
