• 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

They fall into my lap


Got a call from a fellow real estate broker who had a client the needed to sell a Scout. The Scout had been in his barn for 12 years. After being driven up from reno. I went to look and found a 1978 selective edition Scout II . I made him an offer. Next thing I knew I was winching this onto the trailer. 2 of the original gold wheels are in the back of it.



another wheeler project or just turn for a quick profit?
I'm going to flip it. I thought it about making it a daily driver but I have to many others that I'd rather do that with. I got this one started today and it runs great. I drove it a couple of miles and it actually drives pretty well too.
Need to replace the cap and rotor and run some fresh gas through it and it's down the road. :cornut:
That's a cool rig!
Be careful of those super diggers though...they've been out of production for at least 10 years. I had one come apart on the freeway some years back and really did a number on the front fender. Keep the speeds low until you get some new shoes on him!
