Default safty blue 1969 scout800a 304

Hello this is my first post. So here it gose. The begining of 2013 my wife told me she wanted to get an off road rig that the top can come off. She likes open air off roading. I was looking at jeeps, had jeeps for a long time. Then a friend asked if I would like a Scout to change things up. Being my uncle had a 1968 Scout 800a 266 when I was really yung then had to get rid of it do to vandels I said sure. The wife was not sure at first but who could blame her. It was ruff when we got it. The previous owner had got it and was going to make it a mudder... I wanted a slightly lifted Scout that could go everywere I went in my Jeep with no issues. I wanted to keep it Scout but also wanted to up date it with things like power steering and boosted brakes disk brakes and fused/relayed wiring.
Like I stated the Scout was ruff. The previous owner (po) had cut one fender well out in the front trail clearanced the other three. Had installed a crappy rear shackle hack job reversal. He placed the rig on 2 inch blocks with five inch shackles up front and a home made block and 10 inch shackles out back. All on two inch springs. The rig did not come with factory axles but did come with two sets of full width Chevy 1 ton rear 8 lug axles and 3/4 ton front 8 lug axles. The wires were all disconnected and they were messed up by the po. The po also had cut fuel lines and installed a electric fuel pump. He also replaced the carb with a Holley 4412-2 500cfm carb. A new rebuilt distributor.

I know I am going to catch flack for using none IH parts but the point of this rig was to make a off road rig for a decent price that could hang with my friends and family off road...

I fixed some miner problems with the rig as in rebuilding latches. Body mounts. The suspension, running gear(with what I had)
fixing some holes in the body, upgrading some things, rebuilt others. This is the list of some of the things changed.

Holley 4412 rebuild kit I set it up like this. 59 jets, 30cc accelerator pump, custom ground acc. Pump cam. Throttle blade holes filled, 6.5 power valve manual choke. After doing research on your this sight I got the dwell, plugs, timing, and carb tunned right it runs like a champ now.

I built a custom front bumper and am working on a rear, still have to build good roll bar, rear tank (using just driver side factory for now) some rock rails with step. And fix wipers.

This build had a lot involved but to much to type. Here are some pics of before, after, and on its first outing to test and tune. (sand lake oregon)

You wont catch crap here unless you ask for it. And you got my vote with the sv8. Its a good looking rig and its not a j**p. You took time. Made it the way you wanted it. And no one can take that away. Congrats on a good looking rig. And welcome to club IHPA.

Also if you do feel the urge to catch flack just say jeeps rule. Id be happy to make you feel more welcome lol

Thank you for the compliments. My goal is to keep it Scout power train till gives the gost. Which according to the po should be a while the motor was rebuilt when he got it (so he sais) it runs strong like was but who know?
The jeeps rule thing its hard cause I have several of them... Thay are all considered out casts by the hard core wrangler/cj groups. So being on the out side is looking in is ok with me.
I could not pass up a Scout. To rub it in on the wrangler/cj groups..

When, not if, you change the valve cover gaskets, swapping the valve covers to the opposite sides will put your filler in a much more convenient location. Valve cover gaskets just seem to be a regular maintenance item on the sv motors.
