• 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.

Project cancer sucks


I picked this little gem up today for a project for my son and I. As some of you may know he was diagnosed with leukemia at the beginning of the year. He is doing great with the chemo, but cannot do any of the sports he enjoyed before. So he asked me if we can build him a scout so when he gets his license in a few years he can drive one.
The plan is scout 2 axles and 35”tires. A Chevy 350 will replace the little 4banger in it now.
It’s rough, but should be fun.



Any update on this project?
Not really, the Dr.’s did not sound too thrilled when the Boy told them about his new project. We are waiting a little bit to get started on it when he is farther along in his treatments and immune system can handle the dirt and dust better.
