Yea. The hoops weren't done in the pic. We're gonna run a piece of the same tube straight across to the other shock hoop just above the frame. And place some gussets in places as well.

And with that shock hoop brace, were going to try and make an air tank mount as well. The air tank will go in the dead space right under the back seat. That's the plan anyway.

I'm hoping so! With the funds and everything else, I'm hoping by August. Just in time for some fall wheelin!!

Got some new items for the scout! Gonna get up n goin on Thursday hopefully.

Pricey shit but hopefully it will last for a long time!

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

Shiny filter...
[IMG][/IMG]

Fancy tranny cooler. It's a double fluid cooler, so I could cool tranny and my power steering if I needed.

But after looking at it, it's only a four vein cooler for each fluid. Which I don't believe will keep the tranny fluid cool enough. So I'm thinking about just rerouting the tranny line in one cooler and into the second for longer cooling. Any opinions??

If i go this route, I have my old tranny cooler I will use for the power steering cooler.

Roll Cage

I know it's been awhile since the last post. But the busy season at work is keeping me working 40+ hours a week. I've made some progress with the scout.

I started building a new roll cage for it. With help from a buddy and a mandrill tube bender we've made some slow progress. Lets just say working a tube bender with multiple bends screws with your mind!! But we got it figured out after some long nights. Should be able to finish it on the next time we can work in it. Hopefully Saturday.

Here's the front cross member in a pretty sweet piece of equipment. The tube notcher worked out freakin awesome!! The only down side was the hand drill battery would die right when we would get into a groove






The final result of the notcher, minus some flap disk to remove the edges.




And the front crossmember fitted in.



Sorry no more pics of the cage as of now. Going to wait til its done and the top is off.

Thanks. It's been a long road. The rear ratings are in a previous post. The front bottoms are 250 I believe. I don't have top ones yet. I'm going to order 200lb for the tops.

And and update for everyone.. the scout is pretty much at a stand still now. Scouttank got a new job and the scout has been over at my buddies place awaiting a roll cage that hasn't been touched in over two weeks. The cage isn't done and won't be until the scout is up and running.

So now the scout is back over at scouttanks place awaiting some final welding on the top, hopefully soon...

New job for Scout tank, bummer. No more fire permits I guess.

The build looks great. Lots of cool details with pic's. I know how life just gets in the way too.

Front truss for the D60? If so, then yes. Scouttank built it.

Small but still progress...

Been awhile but the Scout is slowly coming together. And of course when I just get in the swing of putting it together it rains.

Bought some new gauges. Autometer Z-series.
[IMG][/IMG]

Bought some top coil over springs.

[IMG][/IMG]

Installed a new brake master cylinder from a 97' f-250. Which has the proportioning valve built in for my rear disk brakes. Just had enough clearance with the engine compartment tube cross brace.

[IMG][/IMG]

And finally, got these little fuse panels for FREE!

[IMG][/IMG]

Hopefully next weekend it won't be raining and ill install the gas tank and plumb the fuel lines.

Clean out your inbox... I can't PM you.

But to answer your questions:

On one of my projects I used a similar fan by bending four mounts out of 1/8" thick x 1" wide sheet metal that clipped over the top and bottom of the radiator (crossflow). The fan was then bolted to the clips. No through zip tie mounts.

OR

I have this kit (NIB) that you could use. The online instructions show a dual fan, but the paper instructions included with the brackets show a single 16" fan mounting instructions. $30 if you want it:

Be Cool Radiators 72031 Be Cool Fan & Radiator Mounting Brackets - Free Shipping on All Orders @ JEGS



Yes, there are four slide in tabs (still in the original unopened packaging) that lock in place to permit different methods of mounting (see above as an example).

The mounting tabs are spaced 8 1/4" (short side) x 15 1/4" (long side).

Shipping calculation shows cost to be ~$17 (std UPS ground).

Did some little things over the weekend. Cut the driver side rear inner fender to get the fuel spout to fit. Measured for a new high pressure steering hose.

Painted the cross member of my engine compartment. And painted and spray my rear fenders with paint and some of that rubberized paint sealer.

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

Bought a lot of these...
[IMG][/IMG]

So i could mock up and mounted my fuel pump and filter.

Nothing physically done to the Scout over the past week or so. I was busy studying for a job interview. Now thats over with ill be tinkering around a lil.

But got this for free from a friend. Nothing special, but its better than what I had. Which was nothing!

[IMG][/IMG]

Put some plywood on top and itll be ready for a vise!

Got this yesterday. A stainless steel power steering reservior for the hydro assist.

[IMG][/IMG]

A new dual battery switch...

[IMG][/IMG]

And you cant have a battery switch without batteries!! Got two of these puppies at a pretty good price!

[IMG][/IMG]

The tentative plan is to figure out how to mount them underneath the scout, under the rear passenger seat. I have the rear shock hoop brace going across and I might be able to play around with that. It would keep the weight in the center and low COG. Well see what I can come up with.

And bought some hose and fittings to fit the Chevy steering pump to the Scout saginaw box. Did a lil test fit and the pump end will just barley not clear a engine block casting seem at the front. So Ill have to die grind just a lil bit off of the block to get it to fit.

[IMG][/IMG]

Stay tuned...

Got my high pressure power steering hose all made up and installed.

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

Fabbed up some radiator mounting tabs out of cardboard and tape. And mocked up the radiator, tranny cooler and steering cooler on the work bench and in the Scout.

Pretty fancy!
[IMG][/IMG]

And the potential look of everything, minus the brackets to hold everything.

good eye. LOL. You can add a radiator hose to the can and figure out a cap for it.

I would see if you can move the hose next to the exhaust manifold or cover it with a heat sleeve

Scout254:
Well shit. In talking to you over the phone. Guess ill have to get a freakin steering pump or return the reservoir and put a hose over the old pump.

R290:
Ill have to check out the heat sleeve. I figured it might be far enough away I not over heat, but better safe than sorry I suppose.

Did some reading and found some information on how to "upgrade" a steering pump to help with the high flow demand of hydro assist and big tires. So that being said, I went out and bought the highest factory flow of a power steering pump from napa.

And reading a guide from the internet (you know it has to be true) I followed the steps on how to make the steering pump a little bit better. The pump that came off of my 5.7L already had the spring stretched to two inches. And the pump I picked up at napa already had a hole drilled to the right diameter in the valve. So I swapped some parts around and reinstalled my power steering pump.

New pump.
[IMG][/IMG]

Spring at 2"'s
[IMG][/IMG]

New PSC steering pump "can" installed on new pump.
[IMG][/IMG]

And everything back the way it was.
[IMG][/IMG]

Hopefully this week ill be getting back my radiator and coolers and I can get the frame brackets placed and welded and support and mount the radiator.

I'm still trying to figure out how my exhaust is going to work with all the links up front and brackets. And then with all the area the np205 is taking up between the frame rails. Thinking about running both pipes on the driver side of the t-case. Anybody have any ideas or pics of their exhaust that they care to share??
