• 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

Newbie- 1971 Scout 800b Anniversary Gift


New member

My name is Charlotte, I am an avid adventurer, baseball cap, get dirty kind of gal! Of course outside of my executive job at the VA. I worked in the automotive industry (Brakes/Tires/Suspension) during my 20s/30s as a sales rep for Michelin, BFG and Goodyear. I loved every aspect of that job!! My husband acknowledged that the garage may own his tools but I will master it, hence the Anniversary gift '71 Scout.

Safety is always first so...where do I start? The Yeti runs, in project mode so I'd like to start with a brake disc conversion F/R with a power booster. Thoughts? Yes I can turn a wrench or two. Completed a 4in Metalcloak lift in the garage on my Rubicon, 37 in beadlocks, gear change, etc.

I'm ready!!!!
This forum is sponsored by a great store (IHPA). Check out their kits for brakes and steering (if not already power steering). Also, there are may in-house builds with great pics and descriptions. You have landed at a great starting point to take your project as far as you want.
Keep us posted. We all love pics!

Thanks! Yes it has a PSC power steering box. I'll check out the store. The guy gave me a new powebr boster and mentioned to put it near the battery wall left side. I want to say he said it crossed over from a ford? I'll have to research the cross over items. Guess I should start with a manual and inventory what needs to be replaced.
