Post My son Daniel's Scout
My younger son just got this for $600, almost completely original. We got it from someone I know from the Scoutswest club, I'm a member. He even brought it to us from Bakersfield. His son had it running two years ago, used an electric pump and a gas can. The battery lit up my test light, and is charging right now. No seats, the doors have been taken apart to clean up.

My son says he wants to get it going the way it is, and maybe modify it later. He's been out there inventorying parts, and cleaning it out since it arrived.

Awesome. Gotta love old iron! Is that the famous IH slant 4? .1 hp per cubic inch :mrgreen:

Yeah, slant four 152 CI, 93 HP. When we were first talking about it I told him it couldn't get out of its own way, he says "you mean it's slow?" He didn't know that saying. We checked it out a little, it's D27s front and rear, Power Lok rear, open front. I think it will be cool to get it putting around.

Since the slant 4-152 was essentially half of a a 304 (or the 196 half of 392) I wonder how much they can be built up power wise. I've seen some pretty strong 304/392 engines so I would assume an aftermarket head and header would be easy to source. Might have to get a custom ground cam and build an intake to flow more air, but would be cool to hot rod one.

I've heard of someone that has done that type of stuff, and really likes these engines. I had a Scout 80 before. It's cool, but leaves a lot to be desired. Not a bad place to start though, it's a good platform to build on.

The battery took a charge, and cranked the engine strong. Didn't start though. There's power to the coil, but pulled the coil wire off the distributor and didn't see a spark. Used a different coil wire and did see a spark. The ignition wires are pretty old, I said lets do a tune up. Then we'll see what happens. He did some pressure washing too.

Sounds promising at least. What year is that one? Should be a fun little cruiser.

It's a 65. My 62 had 9" cam adjust brakes, this has typical 10" brakes. The brakes look good too, front at least. We figured out that if you keep cranking it it won't start. If you let the key come back to the run position, it starts. All we changed is the spark plugs and he wanted to try it, I said I don't think that will do it. He comes back all smiles, saying it started. Funny ignition switch problem I guess.

Starting up.

Most older cars had a "start bypass" that gave extra power to the coil when cranking. Or if it's an aftermarket switch it is probably bad or wired wrong.
