Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

I guess this was worth the almost 2 year wait. Many phone calls, and what ended up with a serious threat to take legal action against them, I finally received my reproduction door panels. I think...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

Finally got time to start working on the Scout again. I found a NOS set of Champagne Series sun visors. I had the original ones but the outer covers were gone. I just had them recovered but they...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

I have 2-1/2" (supposedly) lift springs and about .75 from shackles (shackles 1-1/2 " longer). The tires are 32-10.50 (measured).
Thanks for the kind words.

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

Thank you for the compliments. I enjoy it a lot.

The front bumper is the original one that I re-welded the cracks on and had it restored. The rear I bought off of ebay and had straightened and...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

One of those can be aquired via other channles. Each scrapped Scout 80 has one and the time to make one is not justified. All I'd do would be to find a frame and grind off the little welds then...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

Drove it to work/back and around a bunch, it's definitely way better. From what I can measure with a tape I have about 3/16 toe in. It's still a Scout but a Scout with good road manners. Now time...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

Tie rod flip is complete. I have some commitments that are high priority but after working on those all weekend I figured since Monday was a dayoff from work I'd finish this project up.

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

Sorry dude , I missed your post. Out to lunch I guess. :icon_blaugh::out:

I was worried to have a funny side wall bulge. I like to see the side wall a bit rounded. To get that the tread will...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

Not to contradict your post Robert but mastiff actually has a slightly shorter lift then I do, by no more 1/4" from the details he has posted. I suspect as you have said that it can be dialed in...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

No because I am generally happy with the Scout's ride quality. Also the rev shackle requires major irreversible mods which I refuse to do. Unless it is a bolt on/off deal I won't do it. ...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

I saw the 235 and it looked funny and would be a stretch for the rim.
The 16" rim was a conscious decision because of and along with the tire availability. I felt like this while I went back and...

I have the knuckles back on and back plates cleaned up. I had to replace one brass cone because the spline was loose. At least I had some. Tomorrow I fill finish assembling it and start building...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

While the springs are different lengths and the shackle will alter there angle differently the 4deg will work fine in the rear also.

Front goal is two fold. Caster angle and pinion angle to...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

Reamer is 1 1/2 inches/ft or 3deg 34' 35" per side. An 8 deg hole taper won't work as the taper shank of the tre will rock and loosen up quickly.

I run at 60 rpm which is back gear and as slow...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

4" bolt cl shackle will give you a bit more than 3/4 lift.

4 degree is perfect to compensate for the shackle. You don't need any for the spring lift as it won't alter caster. 6 would be to...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

The angle shims need to be specific to the narrow s80 1 3/4" wide spring. The sii are to wide will not work. You could narrow those or add notches to clear the u-bolts.

Best to ask if Jeff has...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

Mass production???? I have no idea. The part that is not really sale-able is the machine work. A kit would have to have that. Most swap in d44's and use a high steer kit. I am afraid I am the...

Re: Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

I have written this already but in case it was missed. I have the mr-s springs and about 3/4 of shackle lift (1.5" longer shackle). The springs alone were fine from a drivability stand point. ...
