So the transmission is acting up in our pickup. So... I had to use the Scout to deliver a welder! Towed it just fine!

You bet it did. That's not too much trailer for a Scout. A 20' trailer loaded down with lumber or steel would be a different story.

I towed a 18' rv trailer from the bay area to the grand canyon, death valley and back. With electric brakes and a stout load leveler hitch it towed fine.

So my transmission has been acting up once in a while. If I try and climb a steep hill or a big rock sometimes I can put my gas peddle to the floor and the truck still won't go! It's happened three times I think since I've had the Scout. Once when I was stuck in the snow. Anyway... It's time for a rebuild! First step is to pull the transfer case.

I finally got 34 years of grease, oil and dirt scraped off the trans. And the extension housing. I then gave 'em a coat of paint.

I will be doing the same thing for my 72 yellow Scout with a rebuild. No forward gears what so ever. Plus, the tail housing in mine needs to be replaced. Po virus with totally whooped trans mount that screwed up the two bolt holes in the tail housing beyond repair. I currently have two spares sitting here on the bench that one will be swapped in when I do my rebuild.

What rebuild kit did you go with?

The tail section has 4 bolts and only uses two. Could you rework the mount to use the good holes? I know you have a used one already, just sayin'
I had to get the two tail housing seals locally. Not in the trans or t-case kits.

Probably the only way to use the spare two holes in the original tail housing, is to relocate the trans cross member. But from my recollection of when I saw it last, is that it's so buggered up that it's much easier to swap. The damage seemed pretty extensive. I already ordered the output bearing and two seals from IHPA. Bit pricey, but worth the lack of headache in getting it else where. Plus, they seem to be the only ones that provide both the bearing and seals in one kit/package. When I actually get around to working on it, I will start another build thread for that one with posting up the trans rebuild

I did get some more work done on the trans. Pretty much all that's left is to put the valve body back in and install a shifter seal.

I've been meaning to upgrade my alternator for a while now. I wanted a 12si but the parts store didn't have it. So they made me a deal on a 15si. I never heard of it but after some research it is most likely 78 amp. I think it's the same family as the 10 and 12si. Same plug and one post. So wiring was a no brain-er. I did run a 10ga wire directly to the battery so as not to overload the stock amp meter or related wiring. The case on the 15si is bigger than the 10. The only way I could get it in was to make an access panel. The adjusting bolt is larger, 3/8 vs the stock 5/16. A few min. With a die grinder made it work. The new alt. Works great! At idle with the ac and elec. Fan on, I'm at 14v. In drive I still have 13.5v:d

I've been working on fastening down things in the Scout. Here's my most recent solution for my jack.

Well, no sooner than I fasten the jack down, a tire separates on me and I have to use it! On my way home from an impromptu snow run and the steering wheel starts vibrating. Finally it got so bad I had to pull over. Sure enough the driver front had a big bump in it. I found a nice sam's club parking lot and put the spare on. Ups just brought my new cooper stt pros today:d:d
