Default 73 beast

Well, this is the latest addition to my fleet of Scout II's. It's a 73. Origanally it was a later model year when it rolled off the manufacturing line, but I'm all good with it now for being a 73, since I dont have to deal with the ole smog crapola out here in califunkia. It does have a 345 with the auto 727 in it. It is sprung over, along with a Ford 9 inch in the rear and disk brakes and a Dana 44 front with disks. Although, who ever did the work on the front end for the SOA, did a piss poor job in the welding. The booger welds almost doesn't look safe. I won't know how bad it is until I actually pull it out, for a possible gear change to match the rear. It's also sitting on 35" shoes with a 2" body lift.

Here's a couple pics of before I got it:

I will add more as I go along.
So far, here's a few of the things I've done to it in the last month since I've had it:

the small puny battery was replaced emediately with my odyssy dry cell from my rolled Scout. That was so heavy that I ended up using my over head electric hoist, just to lift it up onto the fender. I be getten to be too much of an ole fart to lifting the bolder of a battery up above my shoulders.

changed engine oil and filter.

A major tune up including plugs, wires and coil. Along with a pertronix install.

Just replaced the alternator last night. The old one was on it's last legs and barely working.
