Thanks, their was a lot more to this resto and a lot more to do, brakes need attention and it has a horrible hesitation which I think is the accelerator pump, I found a rebuild kit for the carb in all the parts I got with it, so I'm assuming the po rebuilt it.( the box had old parts in it) I pulled the fuel tanks and cleaned them, they looked good, and the compartments where rust fee which was amazing.
I need to find or build a roll bar for it and repaint the top. If you know of any roll bars for a 800 laying around let me know.

I entered my Scout 2 at the binderbee and won a peoples choice award for it. I bought it for $180 dollars a couple years ago, tore all the Scout running gear out of it and replaced it with wagoneer axles and springs, a cummins 4bt mated to a m5r2 Ford 5 speed and a 205 xfercase, after all that I never want to lay on a concrete floor all winter ever again.
