• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Anyone near Cotati?

    Any BABS members up near or willing to drive to Cotati to pick up a Harley engine for a good friend of mine and fellow Scout guy Levi of Old Iron Offroad?

    Type of fan used on 196 Four Cyl

    Horsepower! A six blade fan will rob the engine of more power than a four blade fan since it is pushing more air. The four cylinder, being a smaller engine, doesn't need such a robust cooling system like a V8 engine does. Since you are not having any cooling issues, I would leave the four blade...

    addco rear sway bar install

    You need to tighten up the bolt some more as I don't see the bushings looking squished at all. Those bushings should look close to half their current size when properly tightened down.

    3/8" fuel supply line for dual tanks in a 71 Scout 800B

    I believe you are correct in that plastic tanks do not have a drain plug. I'd have to get back with you on that one and see if we have done a conversion in-house with plastic tanks. I think there is a big difference in performance but the overall difference will be dictated by how well your...
