• 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.

Emissions Label 1975 Scout II


New member
Hi All,

My name is Gregg and I’m the proud new owner of a 1975 Scout II w/ 345 v8. I recently purchased this beauty from GA, and I live in northern CA. I went to the DMV to register it and do the vin check and then realized the emissions label is missing in the engine compartment. Problem is, I can’t register in CA without one.

Has anyone gone thru this before? I’ve been searching for emissions label specifically for a 1975 IH Scout II and haven’t found anything yet.

thanks in advance for any advice!

Found this (see attached), will this pass CA DMV so I can get it registered ? Not sure if this has everything per what the original had?

Yup. It is exempt, but it needs the emissions label still? Not sure why, but can’t register in Ca until it has one usually in engine compartment.

would you mind taking a pic of yours and posting it here!
