Re: heater box - paint interior?

I think it's a good idea. I used a Rustoleum black paint inside of mine so the surface was smooth and clean, instead of a dirty, rusty one. Any paint smell eventually clears.

Re: Scout II 4-cyl EFI installations

I know the D's are taller (learned that the hard way once). So the Holley 4bbl and 2300 series 2bbl (same air horn size as the 4bbl) isn't the same as the TQ? If so I'd forgo a D so I don't have to...

Re: Scout II 4-cyl EFI installations

Bill,
Does the air cleaner used on the 79-80 Scouts with the Thermoquad have this 5 1/8" opening, you know, will it fit this TB?

Re: Rockers Welded vs. boat style

Your broken welded rockers rung a distant bell. I wonder if your springs weren't tired and you over-rev'd it (lower rpm's by the spring's standard) and kissed some pistons, which cracked the rocker...

Re: Delco 10si Alternator question

I figured it was a resistor but not why it was there. I'll leave it in place when I reassemble this thing this weekend. Yes, gazillion kits out there for around $20. The diode trio was literally...

Delco 10si Alternator question

I put a rebuilt alternator in my Scout about six months ago, and it has very few miles on it. It developed a problem where the battery would go flat overnight, and I traced the drain to the...

It's there, just faint or eroded away.

I'll take the seat bases if you still have them.

Re: Limited disassembly of a 1980 IC 196

Thanks, Robert. I'm not going away, but must re-order certain things.

I still want to pick your brain when the need arises!

Re: Scout II Rallye Steering Wheel

It was in better shape in person than in the pix. I sanded the spokes and gave them a satin black finish, which is close to original. I used plastic polish on the cap and the center decal is still...

Re: Limited disassembly of a 1980 IC 196

I haven't posted in a while. I am nearing retirement and at a point in my life where my priorities have suddenly shifted, so regretfully I need to go in a different direction with my project Scout if...

Re: Sold Scout II Rallye Steering Wheel

I love this wheel. I repainted the spoke and cleaned the cap; just need to buy a leather cover for it. Installed and looking good!

Re: D300 popping out of low range

I misspoke. Thrust washer would then clear the clutch gear journal. The shim i think of adding might just be one used for setting endplay. Have to consult the exploded diagram again

Re: D300 popping out of low range

We are looking at machining a pocket 0.008" deep in the thick thrust washer that is held in place by the bearing cone (rear output) to reduce the axial play of the clutch gear back to the spec'd...

Re: D300 popping out of low range

No, it's the correct bull gear. We've got a discussion going on BP that may have honed in on a solution that may address the problems with worn parts. Next time you have one of these critters apart...

Re: D300 popping out of low range

I posted my gripe over on the BP. This week put the 5/16" ball bearing under the rear shift rail poppet, and slightly deepened the rail's notches. Still pops out, just not as quickly.

Stumped as...

Re: Aluminum Radiators for Scout II

These were used on the 345 79/80 Scouts and the radiator is the specific place where they were "needed". IIRC, this is where it is shown on the smog decal. Having gone through several CA inspections...

Re: Water Pump Gasket

I live in an area where it can get very cold. I have found that I get small, bothersome leaks when the temps plunge. The culprit is usually the lower radiator hose weeping/leaking at the water pump...

Re: Servicing a T-28 Transmission / Borg Warner Model 8 Transmission

This is an excellent write-up. I read this just for grins, but then realized that I once owned a 1972 volvo with a big straight six in it, and it had the bw35 tranny. Adjusting that rear band...

Scout II 4-cyl EFI installations

Bill,
it's finally time to start the dialogue. Know of any pics of an install of your kit on a Scout II w/196? I'm at a point where I need to do a serious reassessment of where I am with my...

Re: Limited disassembly of a 1980 IC 196

It's been a while since I've added any new information, mostly because of the never ending rain and cold weather here in the sierra foothills, and I don't have a suitable man-cave. The Scout is...

Re: Can we run hollow pushrods?

I took close to 0.035" off my ic-196 and the stock pushrods still gave me about 0.085" clearance between the lifter's snap ring and plunger (preloaded) with the cam on the base circle, but my cam had...
