• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

266 V8 engine, lots of new parts $500


New member
I'm selling the engine from my 1968 International Scout 800. It is a 266 c.I. V8. The engine has approximately 80,000 miles and runs perfect. It doesn't leak or burn oil. The engine is still in my Scout if you want to see it run. I will be removing it this weekend. I am only selling because I upgraded to a new fuel injected engine. $500 includes the engine, carburetor, and accessories.
This would make a perfect upgrade for your 4 cylinder Scout.

Work/upgrades include:
new alternator
new water pump, thermostat, and bypass hose
new power steering pump, with brackets
new coil, cap, rotor, wires, plugs
new brass freeze plugs, even on engine rear.
Block flushed
new valve stem seals
new gaskets: valve covers, oil pan, valley cover, intake manifold, rear main seal, exhaust manifold, carburetor.

I also have the following parts for sale separately:
re-ground flywheel
new pressure plate and release bearing
re-cored radiator with new hoses
2 bell housings, v8 to t18/t19
solid state voltage regulator
new electric fuel pump and pressure regulator
engine mounts

if you are interested in everything, we can work out a deal

I am located in north san jose.
