Post My sons Scout
Ryan got this about four years ago already built. Recently he changed the clutches in both Power Loks, he's saving up for new tires too.

He did most of the work himself, I helped him through it. One of the front inner wheel bearings was really stuck on the spindle, ended up breaking the cage off and ruining the seal in the process.

Cool Scout, I've always loved the 80s. Does it have the 304 or the half-a-304-inline-4 or something else entirely? Is there a body lift on there or just a lot of suspension lift? Looks a little high for the tire size.

Some more stuff we did. The prior owner had a home made drag link going into a tapered hole in the tie rod with a straight bolt, he left it loose so it would'nt bind. Doh! This made for sloppy steering. Knuckles were already flat top, we had the passenger side one machined flat on top, drilled and tapped. Then bolted on the arms, they have spacers welded to the bottom of them. We need to reposition the spring hangers though, they're too high in the front. When it flexes, the drag link will hang up on the spring. We removed the clamp on the spring pack right by the drag link.

The alternator quit working, and we replaced it. It had a Saginaw power steering pump in a bracket with only one bolt into the engine, couldn't keep the belt tight. Can't use a Scout II or D Series bracket, it puts the pump too far over. There isn't enough room in the earlier engine compartments. So we used a TRW pump, used from 69 to 73. We were able to put this in a stock bracket that let us tension the belt good. It's the same thing I have in my truck.

Thanks, he's proud of it. You're right about it being high for the tire size, that's how we got it. We can look into it when we rework the spring hangers. Ryan got that radiator, the old one was leaking. They're available for the more common Internationals, not my truck. he's hoping to have it on the trails this season, he got two new tires yesterday. Two more when he can afford them.

Speaking of money, tell him to start saving money to replace those yellow tops :angel:

I don't know what you mean by that, I'm guessing the batteries........

Our annual snow camping trip is next weekend, six IH rigs are going, and probably as many or more non IH. We have a lot of fun.

I'm just teasing about optimas reliability. I used to be a fan but they're quality went way downhill about 5-6 years ago. They're just living on reputation at this point.

Hmmmm. I might just have him get regular batteries, that's what I use.

Yes the old optimas were great batteries but once they caught a military contract they went to "cheapest bidder mode". I like regular old interstate batteries.

Thanks for the info, I don't know that we would have paid that much for a battery anyways. That's just what it came with.

Here's pics from when we changed from a 2.62:1 Dana 300 to a 3.15:1 Dana 20. The Dana 300 case had been cracked and welded, and bondo used on the surface that mates against the transmission adapter plate. We didn't know that when we bought it. This took the crawl ratio from 67 to 81.

This was his first time driving to and from the snow run, I trailered it two years ago. He did pretty good, all four wheels are pulling with the fresh Power Loks.
