I don't know if this could be your starting issue, but there is a switch on the steering column that has a combination of magnets, springs and metal rod that engages when the key tumbler is turned. The one in my yellow Scout was dirty and corroded, it was doing the samething yours is. Jesse took it apart and cleaned it and it's working fine now.

Most parts stores will have that part in stock. Just ask for the starter switch for a 73 vega.

Matt's yellow Scout is right hand drive. We considered buying a new one, but when we compared a standard left hand drive switch to the right hand drive switch, side by side, the right hand drive switch was clearly different and incompatible. There is no listing for a right hand drive starter switch, Scout or vega (I didn't have a problem finding a listing for a Scout starter switch). We had to take it apart and clean it. But you're right, it would not have been worth the trouble to take it apart and clean it if a new one was available. In this case, one wasn't.

Taking that switch out is a pita , but if sean has checked everything else and can't find a problem, he May have to pull it.

Is the switch (left-hand drive) available at the large parts stores, under a Scout II? I looked at IHPA's switch section and didn't see it...did I miss it?

It's a miracle! She healed her self. Power of prayer? Either way, I'll try to make it early enough jessie, it'll be a big help to split up the trip to loon.

On a side note, it turns out boiling omelette's in a ziplock bag does not increase estrogen levels.

I'm installing a push button remote starter so I can bypass that switch. Key will still need to be in the on position so you just can't jump in it and push the button and take off. What it does do is give me another option to start the truck if the switch acts up.

Installing a cs144 alternator for more juice for the fans.

Were you worried that your 5 o'clock shadow was waiting until 6?

From the ziploc website:
can I boil in ziplocŪ brand bags?
No. ZiplocŪ brand bags are not designed to withstand the extreme heat of boiling.

But on the same site: it's total fine to nuke em in the microwave

turns out the bags can become soft at 195 degrees and that's why it's not recommended. Could be a liability issue with molten cheese burning people if the bag leaked.

The glad website says to use freezer bags as they are made with thicker plastic.

Are you bringing a case of bottle water too

Matt helped me finish up the Scout so I could get it started and drive it.

Looks like I bent my front drive shaft to the point its an issue I have a spare and will change it out.
Once that is done, a good steam cleaning of the inside and I'm ready to start packing.

Went to Craig's yesterday and got the steering stops welded in and modified the lip on the 14 bolt. Got my remote starter installed tonight. Last thing to do is get the cs144 installed.

Craig, is this the connector I need?

standard motor products alternator connector s-838 : amazon.com : automotive

Suspect a broken gear. I will take a couple days to confirm,
but it looks like I'll be walking with johnnie as there little hope that stak will have parts in stock

I was hoping it was the front axle, as parts could be found the next day. I plan on pulling the t/c tonight after work. Hopefully that will go smooth. But then I need to crack open the case. Found a you-tube vid on the process, so that's good.

Had I been thinking last night I could have drained the oil

Blows. Throw the old 20 back in and call it good. We can finish the trail early. I know you don't want to spot/stack for me any more.
