Update

Here's a link of the driveline in action!

https://youtu.be/30BUpf7rdN0



Yesterday I mentioned the CV joint getting machined to get more operating clearance. Here you can see they grinded down the ears a little bit and they got it to work at 30 degrees now. Which is more likely going to be more than I will need.

it's on the move!!

Started her up and drove it around the driveway over the weekend!!

Built some trailer ramps and put the scout on the trailer for shits and giggles, just to start drooling I guess.

Been working on getting the wiring inside the scout lately. Got 99% of them done. Heater, wipers, CB and center console is all that is left.

Got my new H4 conversion headlights installed. Still routing the wiring to get them to work.

[IMG][/IMG]

Used my radiator support brackets to mount the included hardware.

[IMG][/IMG]

Im borrowing my brother in laws 2500 this weekend (my weekend) so i can take the scout to the exhaust shop! Im also trying to get it to another shop to get some tube bent to finish off my tire carrier and roll cage.

I'm trying to get everything prepped for the tube work other than the actual bending of the tube. So I fabricated up some rear body support pieces out of .250 wall plate and then back plated it with 3/16 plate. With a little heat from a torch a vise and a big hammer, I bent everything to the shape of the scouts panel. The two pieces are for my rear tire carrier swing arms.

[IMG][/IMG]

Next I took the bushing and placed it in the bracket to make sure it fit and then welded up the three pieces to make a pivot bracket.

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

The passenger side...

[IMG][/IMG]

And the final product...

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

Next step is to cut down my old rear bumper to match the dove tail of the scout. Then I can weld up the bumper and get the tube to be bent and fit from the pivots and well be good to go! For a visual its going to look like a Poison Spyder rear stinger carrier, with a few Scout upgrades.

exhaust

Well as promised I got the exhaust done at a local muffler shop! Did a great job! A lot of little twists and turns with a four link and a big np205 in the way.

Here she is loaded up and heading out the driveway.

[IMG][/IMG]

A pic of her new home for the day.

[IMG][/IMG]

Pic of the exhaust and the bend between the link tabs and tranny. He got it all in there with one piece!

[IMG][/IMG]

And heres the "Y" going from 2" to 2.5".

[IMG][/IMG]

Ended up having to run a flowmaster "cherry bomb" style muffler, in order for any type of muffler to work with the limited space.

Some good things and some bad things came about with this exhaust being done. First, when I parked the trailer and off loaded the Scout and drove it across to road to the shop, it wouldnt shift out of first gear.

So while it was up on the rack I took out the tranny govenor and found out the valve was stuck, not letting it shift. So while the exhaust was being worked on, my buddy and I went to the local PNP and grabbed a couple govenors and headed back to the shop and installed one. When the exhaust was done I drove it across the street and low and behold it shifted!!

Tuesday I took it to the tube shop and he couldnt get the scout in until next tuesday. So when I got back home I decided, what the heck.... I got this great sounding scout, why not drive it up and down the road real quick like.

So I did. Sounded awesome! But now it wouldnt shift into 3rd gear. When I finally pulled into my driveway the scout died, i figured it ran out of gas. So i put it into "N" and coasted down the drive, and when I came to a stop, I couldnt move the shifter into any position

I took it apart and found a loose nut had wedged itself in between two brackets and it couldnt shift. So I fixed that, just to find out it still wouldnt shift. So I crawled under the Scout to find a nice new black burn mark on my new muffler and a completley melted covering on my shifter linkage.

I took out the melted linkage and orderd a new one, with two day air so I could get it back installed by my tube appointment on tuesday. Doing some reasearch, I checke out my tranny's (700r4) TV Cable thinking it may be the reason why the tranny isnt shifting into 3rd. I tried adjusting it all the ways I was told and each of them said it should "ratchet" out when adjusting it at WOT. Well my cable isnt "ratcheting" out and I have adjusted it both ways to still have the cable be loose. So I ordered a new TV Cable from Summit in hopes my linkage has stretched, and I also ordered a long heat sleeve wrap to prevent another shifter cable meltdown.

Stay tuned, the next time I post pics Ill have my bucket seats and center console installed, my roll cage finished, and my tire carrier done.

Heres the front suspension at work. The only reason we couldnt go higher was the front bumper was in the way.

Cut that fucking bumper dildo off of the end and stretch that bitch out!

Looks good. Good to see the progress on all of these jack stand rigs.

Thanks HOS. The bumper dildo will be cut off soon enough. Waiting for another person to help take the bumper off so I can cut it, put longer battery leads on the winch and repaint it all.

I got everything all done at the shop. Just need to weld it all up and put some jerry can mounts on the tire carrier and we're all done. I think the cage turned out pretty bitchin

Thanks Mechanos! I've already made the appointment with the doc!

I know it sticks out a lil but but you gotta take the good with the bad. It's far enough out that if I were to ever put a tailgate back on I could and still clear the tire and with the swing dwn I don't have to worry about lifting a 42" tire up past my shoulders. Leverage will be my friend. Atleast that's what I'm telling myself anyway.

Next question was, is how do I keep the VSS for the computer working. Well I already had the adapter for the np 205 to my speedo cable. So I ended up just needin to cap and plug the VSS adapter. Ended up finding a plastic cap that fit and then used some silicone to seal it.

Thanks. There's only one way to find out. I'm sure I'll hit it from time to time. I'll also place a skid plate on it as well to counter that. Like I said earlier, have to take the good with the bad. If I built it any less rearward, my 42" tire would be where my tailgate would be if I decide to place one. Any higher and the tire would be a really high center of gravity on the Scout. Well see what happens...

Progress is going pretty steady with the Scout.

Got the roll cage all welded and painted. Cut and made the engine bay support tube removable. Wired the whole scout up. I actually have working windshield wipers, and a three speed heater(minus ductwork) now.

Replaced the old brake/running and reverse lights with LED's. Installed all the gauge wiring and all gauges are functioning correctly. Adjusted the master cylinder in hopes to get a stiffer pedal, which still needs some minor work done.

Cut the bumper dildo off as Harvester of Sorrow called it. And I started her up today and let the motor warm up to 210* and let the thermostat open and the engine fan kick on.

I took it out on the street today for a short 5 min lap. Let everything warm up and strecth her legs. Which felt AWESOME! We're almost done!

My next dilemma is with the front fenders. How much to cut off. I did some research and found a few posts with pics of front fender cuts, but none of them I seemed to like. So I put some tape and photo editing to work to see how it would look before I started hacking.

What do you guys think? Alright or a little too much taken off?

I spent the last two weeks working my ass off trying to get the Scout up and running for an event called "Wheeling With Cops" up at the Bambi Inn just up the hill. The event took place yesterday and included a large amount of kids from the the local Boys and Girls Club.

What a great event!! I met several local wheelers, caught up with old friends and most of all had a BLAST treating the kids with some good ol fashion wheelin!!! Nothing too hard core but they didn't care

Took em up to Colby Mountain fire look out and then back down. Ended up being a nice mayden run for the scout. I will definitely be back next year!

Nothing broke and only minor tweaks needed.

Over the few weeks I got my gas tanks skid plate cut to clear a full bump from the 14 bolt, painted and installed.

[IMG][/IMG]

After installing the spare tire and having a friend hop in the back of the scout for some added "tool and gear" weight. The scout was looking like a prerunner. So I cut n lowered the rear spring mounts 1" and welded her back up.

[IMG][/IMG]

Wired up the front bumper lights and rock lights...

[IMG][/IMG]

While test driving it awhile the heim joints would blow out causing some major death wobble. So I call the manufacturer and got a few sets of new C-clips to replace the older style rings that didn't work.

Did some front fender trimming which was sad to do But a necessary evil, I suppose.

I also installed a HF special ATV winch on the rear portion of my roll cage to assist with lifting the spare tire up and down. What a great investment! I tried lifting it once and my back was tweaked for a week. Now I just push a button and watch

Here are some pics of my rider and the fun we had!
