Re: Low Serial Number 61 Scout 80

As life presents many twists and turns so do the projects that we take on. I have decided to not take on the return of my original scout after all. If a home can not be found for it by its current...

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: speedo gears???????

That is the correct direction. Your POV when looking at the doohickey is the same as looking at the speedo from the drivers POV (point of view). From the back of the speedo the direction of rotation...

Re: Holley 1904 Economizer

The metering plate contains all of the low speed and premain jet calibration for a given application. There is a number stamped on the metering plate that relates to its intended application.

Re: Holley 1904 Economizer

Re: Holley 1904 Economizer

The long tail goes down and the tapered end is supposed to seat in the hole. Problem is the housing is worn out and the poppet just falls out. Your poppet is also missing the short actuator tip that...

Re: What is this hole?

On one that I rebuilt for a IH fan, I machined a plug and grooved it for an oring pressed it in. No reason you can't fine a piece or metal the correct size and silicone it in.

Re: new IHPA master cylinder questions

You have manual brakes and that master may be for a power booster. The geometry binding you are having canít be avoided. Is there a non power master available?

Re: fuel tank question

Do you have an emissions label? Do you have to smog it? If not use a vented cal that allows venting both ways. The pressure indicated that all venting out of the tank is blocked.

On that note I sincerely hope it is a simple fix, but the lifters are fed only from the...
