• 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.

ScoutII 304 and 727 Transmission


Ok it is Christmas time and I am looking to move some parts out of the garage. I know guys like parts for Christmas because I do. I know they dont wrap well but all the same they are fun to get.

304 engine
I have a rebuildable 304 engine out of a 74 Scout II. I am selling it because the compression has dropped due to old rings. It has great oil pressure, not ticking lifters, heads seem to be good, just needs new rings and I am working on a bb mopar conversion so I dont need this motor any more. I am asking $250 for it. The way I figure it the parts are worth more than that considering it has a good distributor with new points and condenser, a 64 amp alternator, a fairly new waterpump, and a set of great valve covers. No carb. Check out the picture.

Scout 727 transmission
I have a 727 transmission out of a 75 Scout II 4x4. I pulled the pan and it was clean fluid, and the end play looks good. I have not ran it before but from what I see I would. I am asking $125 for the transmission obo.

dodge big block 727 torqueflite transmission
Also if you have the desire to build a big block dodge conversion or build a killer 727 transmission I have a big block mopar 727 transmission as well. This is a builder out of a motor home. It has 4 pinion planetaries, 4 friction clutch packs, 10 spring front clutch packs, all of which could make a bullet proof Scout transmission. I am asking $200 for it but make me an offer and I will probebly move on it.

392 non improve coolin heads
I also have a pair of 392 non improved cooling heads. They are in good shape. They do not have rockers on them but do have springs and valves. They appear to be in good shape but I have never ran them. I am asking $75 obo for the pair.

If you have any questions feel free to email me at jonsalter@seeleyins.com.

Items are located in lake of the pines California 95602
