Finally getting something accomplished. Trans rebuild is complete. Now I need to pull out the pos used tranny that I made the mistake of purchasing. Might just get busy doing the trans swap next weekend. Unless I get sidetracked with playing with my new plasma cutter, when it comes in next Thursday. I had already rebuilt the d-20 transfer case awhile ago, that's sitting on the shelf waiting patiently. Just several things being checked off my laundry list of things to do to make this Scout road worthy.

As some May recall in another thread elsewhere, I have a defunct wiper motor. The plastic gear is buggered up and apparently made of unobtainium. Plus, the motor is in need of a rebuild. Through another local IH member, who turned me onto a possible source, I ordered a 2 speed wiper motor that has the potential of a being a good Scout II replacement. I will post up more about it next week when it comes in. Unless I'm doing the tranny swap, then it will be a week or two for me to know for sure if this new wiper motor will work or not.

Been a few months since I posted my last update. Rebuilt trans is installed and half filled with fluid. I still have another gallon of red juice to add. Within the last few weeks, I changed the pan gasket on the motor. New oil awaitng to be poured in. Also replaced the heater hoses along with a new plastic heater control valve. Spent half the day today completely piecing my drivers door back together with power windows. Passenger side is having issues with power up. Currently struggles and stops half way up. The chrome frame in the wind wing is cracked. And the roll up/down window is starting to do the same. So, I plan on swapping the glass out with some spares that I have laying around. Recently, since my manual choke cable was so long, I ended up cutting roughly two feet off the end just to be able to have a decent routing to the carb with out kinking it. Also, since most the work on motor is mostly done, I mounted the air cleaner. And awhile ago, I took the time to install the fan shroud.

Finally been able to get a little wrench time in the last couple weeks. Found out last week that my alternator was bad. So I ended up getting a rebuilt one from a local repair shop a couple days ago and installed today. Roughly 14.8 volts at idle. I would take it out for a test drive, but I don't exactly trust the battery enough to start back up if stalled out. Plus, I need to reinstall the gauges.

That seems a fuzz high at idle, Kimball. 13.8 to 14.4 is more typical depending on battery status and current loads. Might wanna keep a close watch on that.

Indeed. Might be due to an extremely low battery. Started off with just over 10v on battery when I had to jump off my 2002 yoda. After idling for about half an hour, several times, battery was holding just over 12v.

Just one more thing that I plan on replacing soon, is the battery. My current one doesn't have enough gogo cranken juice.

Oh yeah. That'll do it. Alternators definitely struggle and strain to replenish severely depleted batteries.

While slowly getting her to be road worthy, I decided to do a little breather/vent relocating. The bracket was a simpson strong tie angle bracket from home depot that I chucked up in an ole bridgeport at work, drilled and cut to fit the fittings that I purchased through egay.

Front axle, transmission, transfer case and trans adaper to TC are now breathing through the filters up on the firewall.for the 5th empty filter, eventually, I will route tubing for the rear axle.

I also purchased a new battery. No more need to jump start off my yota to get her started. Hopefully, within the next couple weeks, I will be able to start driving and enjoying ole yeller. Instead of staring at a huge door stopper

Well, finally, after months of procrastination, lack of funds and time, last Friday, I got her insured, registered and was able to legally drive her out of storage and take her home. Furthest I ever drove this since I owned it. Long story.

Handle exactly how I expected. Like crap. Typical scout wandering, along with a P.O. piss poor job of an install of a crappie tilt steering column. I'm kicking myself in the butt for not replacing the column when I had a chance, along with doing the shackle reversal install when I still had a shop space with power. I already have the reversal kit on the shelf. And went against my better judgement of wanting to see how it handled before I did the install

Be about a month before any new updates. But future plans of reinstalling the front bumper with a possibility of a winch, along with a dual battery install. So stay tuned

Well, I somewhat retract my thought if driving like crap. Guess that I been getting a little spoiled with the creature comforts of my '02 yoda sequioa. Coupled with not driving my own scout in about 4 years.

It drives like an old truck. With the typical road manners of scout wander. I had a chance to drive it around town a couple times this week. I kind of surprised myself, that the 727 didn't puke all over the place. Since that trans was the first Chrysler transmission that I ever rebuilt on my own bench. Felt like I need to do some band adjustments, overall seemed to be okay. Although, trans temp seemed to be getting high at 190*. So I will be looking unto that as well. Currently have othdr obligations at the moment, so it will be a few weeks till I get to it.

Also, the non-stock tilt column will need to be replaced. Hopefully with a non-tilt version.

Now the fun begins. Dual rectifier and second (group 27) battery on hand. Getting ready to install the dual battery setup. I'm considering installing the 2nd battery in the bed between the passenger rear wheel well and the tailgate. Once things get mounted and installation of cables, I will post more photos and details.in the meantime, I need to order up a battery box and 1/0 cable. Just haven't calculated how much length of cable will be needed yet

Spent some time installing the battery box and battery isolator. Since my plan is to route 1/0 gauge cable from the inverter to the battery box at the tailgate, under the length of the cab, I mounted a pair of through bulkhead connectors next to the box.

Here's a shot of the group 27 battery that I will be using as my second battery, along with the DC to AC inverter that will be mounted near the box by the tailgate.

After driving Ole yeller around town the last few months, I got tired of not having a rearview mirror that normally gets glued onto the windshield. The original mirror had fallen off at some point before I acquired this rig.

As I was searching in my storage for something else, unrelated, I decided to take care of mounting this mirror, that I managed to salvage from my rolled scout. Surprisingly, the mirror didn't get crushed.
