• 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.

    Jeff Ismail

Have a scout not sure what year pickup with removable top
How do you post pics on here have serial tag photo and pics of vehicular on my page
Did you ever find a project?
I have a 71 800B all original (had lineset ticket attached; placed somewhere safe, apparently)
Been sitting on it for about 10 years now and don’t ever see myself having the time to work through it
Will run and drive but needs work to be roadworthy
Very solid

Novato, CA


Still on the lookout.
I’d also be interested in building my first scout 2. 1973 front grill preferred but I’m open to solid projects of the scout II body style.


Jeff I was interested in the half cab but there are too many question marks on drivetrain condition and body rot...
