Re: carter 800 cfm

Throttle return springs are inexpensive and can be purchased in different lengths and diameters. You get one slightly longer than needed and trim the excess off the straight ends. Stud fittings on...

Welcome! Looks like a good one. I'm jealous. Mine needs a lot more work to get to where yours is.

Re: 2 barell holley 2300 Carb- base plate replacent question

I moved your thread to the appropriate category. That breakage happens when fasteners get overtightened. Unfortunately, that throttle body is ruined. The JB Weld won't hold up to fuel exposure, and...

Re: Problem starting engine

What's your history with this Scout? Has it ever worked right for you? Is this an old or a new issue? Is the wiring harness original/stock, previous owner molested, or aftermarket? How about the...

Re: 72 Scout II water Temp Running at 220

I take it you have an aftermarket temperature gauge installed to be seeing these numbers? Is there any chance it could be an instrument issue? Are there other indications that the engine is running...

Re: Confused about the 4WD system

Not really that rare. It won't really have much impact on the value either way.

Re: Should I change my 4bbl to a 2bbl

The IH 2bbl intake is a common pattern that will accept any Holley or Motorcraft 2bbl carb. I know plenty of folks have gone with the Motorcraft on an IH engine. I'm more familiar with the Holley...

Re: Compression difference in a 345?

No, just don't cycle it a bunch of times. One squirt won't hurt.

Re: Compression difference in a 345?

Yes, or wedge the linkage wide open at the carb. You want air to be drawn into the engine unobstructed. Is the engine able to be started and ran? If so, it would be e best to warm it up first, then...

Re: Should I change my 4bbl to a 2bbl

You won't be out anything, except the money for a new carb. 4bbl carbs weren't designed to work on 2bbl intakes. The adapter is clumsy stop-gap measure. Your best bet is to make the carb and...

Re: Compression difference in a 345?

Were all the spark plugs out? Was the throttle blocked open? Those numbers are consistent. There's only a 16 psi difference between the highest and the lowest.

Re: 78 Scout II Rear Wiring Mess

I forgot to mention that the early SII models used metal light housings which derived their ground via fastener and direct sheet metal contact. Your Scout likely has the all plastic housings which...

Re: 78 Scout II Rear Wiring Mess

I'll be referring to the FSM covering early SII models '72-74, but as it pertains to the rear wiring, I believe it should still be mostly, if not entirely applicable to your Scout as well. Beginning...

Re: Harmonic balancer difference?

The other part of your question about #8 plug wire location has me thinking that maybe you aren't ensuring that the #8 piston is at the top of the COMPRESSION stroke. It will be at the top on the...

Re: Harmonic balancer difference?

I can't give you a definitive answer about the balancer. What I can say is these engines were externally balanced, so ring gears and balancers factor into that equation. Swapping those parts around...

Re: Forth of July Sale!

One of the items, a RS t-stat, is on sale. So that's what fouled me up. The one thing I really need at this point is a fuel tank sender for a D-series truck. That's just pennies shy of $82. ...

Correct. The figure I stated was the pre-ship subtotal. The grand total with shipping, but without the discount applied, would be roughly $130. I populated the cart from my wish list. Maybe that...

Re: No Oil in the Driverside Head

Jereman, your last few messages haven't made much sense. Incoherent babble mostly. I'm going to need a translation, or maybe you could try again in complete English sentences this time.

Re: No Oil in the Driverside Head

Did the builder offer any warranty? If it was a screw up on his end, he should have to make it right.

Re: No Oil in the Driverside Head

Cam shaft bearings. Carrier bearings are found either in axle differentials, or as center supports between two long drive shafts.
How do you know you're not getting oil to that bank? What's the...

You had to take a wrench and undue two nuts from the back of that gauge. Each one of the pegs had a certain number of wires attached to it. Maybe one had three and the other had five. Doesn't matter...
