Gotta luv them chew chompen bubble gum welden gun slingers.

Pulled the tank with crusty hoses along with duct tape holding vent tube in place

surprisingly, the sending unit looked to be in good shape. But since the one vent tube on top of the tank is completely broken free, I will be swapping tanks with a known good tank that I've got laying around.

Well, in preparation of getting this thing road worthy, I'm finally getting around to fixing/replacing something that's been bugging me ever since I've had this Scout. New u-bolts and spring plates for the front axle. Due to the bent u-bolts, I ended up using the gas axe in order to cut out the old crap.




Turns out, that there's another issue that became apparent when I started cutting out the u-bolts around the diff pumpkin. The spring pack pin is missing. The leafs started to separate while I was removing the old u-bolts and brackets.
now I'm kinda stuck on hold till Monday when I can call up and order a new pin. And since I'm at it I plan on ordering the same parts for the rear end.

Finally, after clearing out the front half of my cave and finishing up the u-bolt, spring plates and leaf spring bushings for the front end, I was able to actually drive ole' yeller out and drive up & down the street. First time, since I have had this rig, that it's been able to have forward motion on its own power. The spare used transmission seems ok for the moment. The true test, for when I get it insured and registered off non-op, is to actually drive it around town.

Just got done replacing the rear spring bushings. And it looks like I May ultimately need to do some surgery and/or replacement of the rear axle housing. I was hoping that I had another pair of spring center pins, since one pin is whooped and barely holding the leafs together. Apparently there was some axle shifting on left side that caused the hole, that the leaf's centering pin sits in the spring perch to get wobbled out and oblong. it will have to wait for another day. Going to baby it until another rainy day of maintenance.

Scooter this thing running yet buddy? I think I got you beat, the Scout 80 is finally running perfectly and was worth the wait.

Did all the upgrades we discussed (petronix, weber 32/36, new exhaust, new radiator with electric fan) and wait for it... 4 speed mated to a Dana 20 with terra low.

Goog for at least 51% of that v8 you said I should have gotten!

Hope you're well...

Yup, it's running and can be driven. But this rig will be more for mall cruising, with limited camping and light trails, and wont be much of a wheeler like my other beast.

But, ever since I have had this rig, at least one of the problematic bulkhead connectors has been falling apart and refuses to stay connected. Along with some po virus hack work. Plus, I feel that replacing the 43 year old oem wiring is looking better all the time.

With a few recent parts order purchases for two of my own scouts, here's a preview of what's to come in the next few weeks for this ole girl.

I know the kwik wire kit doesn't really require it and you might already have a idea in the area of the bulk head connections, but just in case I thought would throw up these links.

These might help for the bulk head connections and end point connections. I have bought both in the past. They seem high quality to me.

Thank you for the links and heads up. If my current oem wiring was in decent shape, and had atc blade style fuses, I would have considered just upgrading to the delphi style weatherpack bulkhead connector.

I have done a few complete re-wires over the years, including one with the kwik wire 14 circuit on a 69 Scout 800. And have incorporated some weatherpack connectors in several areas, depending on application.

After spending the last few months, or so, of working on other members rigs, I'm finally getting a chance to get back to working on my own Scout/s. Part of the trade off of working on another person's Scout is swapping for parts or supplies. Thanks to silverscout, 'ole yeller' is getting new shoes. When I first got this Scout, it had two pairs of un-matching donuts, along with one having a plug in the inner side, wall causing a slow leak. Yesterday, I spent a better part of the day doing some tire/rim swapping. The rims ole yeller is sporting now came off an old '90 Bronco that I had 10 years ago.

Finally spent most of this weekend gutting the old wiring and mounting new fuse box/wire harness. Also patched up the old holes left behind. Along with plugging up a few po hacked hole that wasn't needed.

While doing the wiring, I realized that the one maintenance issue that I didn't do, was intake and valley pan gasket replacement. Well, once I tore into it, ran into a freken po bug. Some knuckle head used a bucket full of blue snot called sillycone on the valley pan gasket. Turns out, upon further inspection, that the valley pan itself was warped and bent out of shape. And that blue snot was a piss poor fix. Luckily, thanks much to fdchappie, I was able to acquire another one in decent usable shape. In the mean time I figured I do something similar to what I did with my 73 beast. And this is what I ended up with.

Now I can tidy up and finish the wiring in the engine compartment. Also, one other issue that I need to address - is the little hole in the front of the block for a dip stick tube. Since this a Scout motor with the dip stick in side of oil pan, I don't need the one in the front. So the fun begins of plugging it while the motor is in place

Thank you for the complements. Currently don't have much in the way of progress. I still need to finish up the complete re-wire and transmission rebuild. My full time job keeps getting in the way. I was actually skeptical at first about the color when my friend first told me about it. Then after some google searching and digging up an old photo of another friends boat motor, I started to like it more and more. The photo is a furd 460 in a boat

Well, this has been a long drawn out build. Was hoping to have this up and running by now. But, life and work gets in the way. Which translates to no wrench time this weekend. But, last weekend, I did manage to finish up the over sized fuel tank and install it. Even with a slight snag of 3 of the mounting tabs off the tank falling short a 1/2" to the frame cross member under the tailgate. So I had to cut the tabs off and fab up new ones.

I have also set this tank up for future plans of going efi at some point. And I routed the internal fuel pick up tubes to all four corners of the tank and hooked up to walboro fuel pick ups

Along with a baffle so to speak in center of tank

When I first picked up this tank about 10 yrs ago from the jy, it had a drain plug in the bottom right corner. Nice idea but slightly a pita with a plug and being so low on the tank. I wanted an easier way to drain the tank if needed for servicing. So, a drain peacock was installed. Along with some added protection.

One more added feature. In order to be able to service the inside of the tank. I fabed up the top and some angle steel. After lots of measuring, welding, and lots of drilling and tapping, I came up with this.

During this fuel tank swap, I realized that the filler tube was made out plastic pos. Fortunately, I have had several metal versions sitting here on the shelf. So I swapped that out.

Also, never mind the yellow wire dangling from the right rear shackle. That will be tucked away neatly till needed. That's for an electric fuel pump that hasn't been installed yet. That will be done when I get to the point of actually going efi. Now I need to hook up all the vent and filler tube hoses.

**edit**
fixed the phot links
