a 1977 traveler caught my eye about six months ago and despite a transmission rebuild, it makes me smile just looking at it. anyone have any suggestions on best place to start a thread about shipping it to ca from tx and getting it registered? thanks!

fyi any vehicle 1976 and newer will require passing the model and year smog test. you need to know if the texas traveler was federal emissions or 50 state/california equipped. if federal you will need to install all applicable equipment.
likely that will be a minimum:
air injection pump and plumbing.
egr fitted intake manifold and controls.
spark advance delay system.

there are a lot of pieces that you will need that can be sourced should it become necessary. we can deliberate further after that decision is made.

the titling process is simple. it in tales a signed texas title, bill of sale or statement of fact if the title is missing. you will then need to get the truck vin verified, either at the aaa, chp or dmv referee.

regarding xixrebos 77 traveler, federal vs ca oe emissions equipment. unless things have changed recently, you are not required to add ca emissions equipment to a fed emissions vehicle. it has to have the emissions equipment that it came with in working order and pass the fed requirements. hey robert, has ca changed the requirements? ca used to charge a "smog impact fee" when you brought a fed emissions vehicle into the state. it was later ruled unconstitutional and the fees were refunded. that was the case with my 76 scout (federal emissions) that i bought in reno when i lived in truckee.

new member. dad had three scout iis in the 70's that i grew up with, the last was an '80 turbo diesel. in oct i purchased a '74 sii (345, 727, 4x4) to fix up with my 16 yo son, for him (and me) to drive. these forums have been very helpful.

welcome to the forum, wareagle! what a thoughtful and unique retirement gift. starting off with a decent driver puts you on better footing than most beginners. good pictures inside and out from stem to stern are always encouraged. its much easier to provide germane feedback that way. one of the best investments any binder owner can make is to get their hands on a factory service manual for their particular model. they're available from ih parts, the vendor who owns and maintains this forum.

http://www.ihpartsamerica.com/store/slcts-2303.html

the documentation they contain was originally intended for consumption by trained ih service techs, not joe shadetree, so they take a little getting used to, but they are a wealth of information.
this forum is also a wealth of information, as most of the issues you are likely to encounter have probably been faced by someone else before you many times over. so you can certainly self-educate through browsing and searching through pertinent thread topics. then, if you reach a point where you still have a specific question about something that you just can't find a satisfactory answer to, by all means, start your own new thread under the most applicable sub-heading within the tech forum and we'll try to guide you as best as we can. good luck and have fun with your new toy.

Hi everyone! I had my first Scout II as a senior in high school. I've been in love with these trucks ever since. I recently bought a 1974 Scout II and it's in pretty great shape. I live in the Bay Area and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a shop in the area? I don't want to just bring it to any old shop if in case I need to.
