I didn't want some old worn out oil pump , so my only choice was getting a new P/U pump and modding it to fit.


I never liked having a O-ring seal a sucton side of a pump, so it was going to be NPT for me. I reworked the bypass return and the inlet for a rear sump pan.


I started on my custom 7 QT beefy oil pan. It will have a windage tray and oil traps. I'm going to use a sight glass in the side of the pan to eliminate the water intrusion from the stupid rubber dip stick flange .

I really like this idea, Robert. How are you going to determine how high the fluid level in the pan should be? Also, what are you planning to use for a sight glass? An external tube, or something integral to the pan like on a bike?

The stock pan is full with ~1" of oil over the pick-up. The sight glass will cover a range of 3.5 qts so I'm not to worried about finding the correct level right off.

I built this ugly POS out of aluminum. It was just too fugly to keep, but I think it was on the BB last week and receiving great praise.


I liked the aluminum and cut it down, but still didn't want to keep it.
I had cut the fenders and installed 2" LED side markers.



The truck had the factory cooler and I thought it might need a little help. You can see the blower for the engine oil/PS coolers on the right.


My local industrial surplus had these 180mm 12VDC fans for 3.00 ea.


I mounted them behind the cooler. They move a suprizing amount of air.


I started on a real bumper/winch mount. I needed to replace the turn signals and LEDs added a little bling.


Some more Bling with some diamond plate and lights, plus a high amp 12V plug in.

Oh my goodness ~ I just realized that I've seen that bumper in person ~ It may have been Hollister Hills 99 or Tulare 99 ~ not sure...maybe since then...not sure.

Bought scout, four years later, still never wheeled.

Bought disco, 3 hours of mods later, wheeling.

There is a lesson somewhere . . .



BTW if you take off the cross bars it will be quieter in the disco.

OTOH I bought a scout, 10 minutes later I was wheeling, I bought a rover and it took me six months to get it together. The current rover is pushing your record.

3hrs , It took me 3 hours to build the long travel rear shock mounts.

The cross bars were needed for that trip. The canoe was back at camp



You have a Scout?

I had a client ask me to rebuild a control panel for him. I open the box and was happy to see Clippard parts. I ordered up the replacement parts for him and pick up what I needed for my ARB controls to boot.
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/uploads/arb-control.jpg

I then took a small project box and made my ARB control panel for my console.


Started to work on painting her. I stripped the whole rig down to bare metal. I used heavy duty paint stripper. It took about six hours to do the whole rig. I found rust under the factory IH primer! I killed the rust by washing the rig in Phosphoric acid.

The hood after I removed the factory paint:


The hood after I has washed the middle with some H3po4



I shot a coat of self ecthing Zinc Cromate primer, then a marine epoxie barrier primer.





The color coat is Dupont industrial polyurethane, Imron 333. It's cheap and tough. I had it tinted Land Rover Arles Blue.

Up to date! This is current stuff from here on out.

I sold off the 2001 Chebby van seats I had mounted and bought a set of PRP from from Rock Buggy Supply. Dumpped the doors for a set of SSII inserts. Added a cheapy stripe and some rubber flares.
Started my cold air intake.





Oh yea I picked up these Superior Cro-Mo axles for my whimpy D44. I put a set of OX u-joints in them.

OK actual techy kind of question - yea right...
Do you have a automatic radiator or are you just using the small factory cooler? Is it enough to actaully work on its own? what about connecting two of those factory coolers together - would that be enough to cool a 304?

I have the same cooler on my rig, but that's all I currently have.

Sweet write-up/pics,just as meticulous as the work itself.

Looks great and should provide some much needed enthusiasm for those of us with Scout parts littering the property.

Stupid low-tech / no tech question for you OS.

Where'd you get the stripe? Is that decal? or did you mask and paint it?

Looks like wheel spacers on the rear in one of the pics, if so is that to widen the rear to match the Cheb front?

that subuaru pump..........I was under the impression that they didn't run all the time as installed in the cars, will yours run all the time?


Looks good btw now get the dam thing done

Someone should offer up some kind of prize for race between me and OS to see who gets done first. Maybe that would keep the fire lit under our asses to finish these things.

I, too, an suffering from motivation deprivation associated with a long build. Hell widen the challenge to include Chiscouter.... he's into a marthon build as well.

I have a standard auto radaitor cooler in-line before the aux cooler in front.

It's just regular old 3M automotive stripping. The international sticker was made by these guys:http://www.decalzone.com/creat.php

yup the rear was built wider than stock but needed 1.5" on each side to be 1" narrower than the front.

Quote:

The Subaru has rack and pinion steering, so it needs boost all the time. They did slow the pump down at speeds above 50, but never turned it off.

What is left:
finish up some low level wiring
Run ARB lines
weld on some frame beef for the steering box. The box was rebuilt by PSE and modded for hydro assist. I'm leaving the ram off untill I wheel it a bit.
Pull front axle a drop off at Mark H's for gear/ARB install.
Build cage/seat/belt mounts
Install sliders, I have already built them.
Finish up oil pan/pump mods
Install full manual 727 valve body/deep pan.
Exhaust tail pipes. Muffs currently stop and rear diff.
Install 1350 rear CV yoke and 1310 front CV yoke on the D300.
Finish front drive line. Home built using tractor parts
Order rear drive line from High Angle
Bleed brakes
Wire up Stereo and CB
Build SSII door inners
Build 1/2 doors
install heater


Ohh yea. I have purchased a Chrysler 727 for my engine swap. I will be building a Mopar 408 for her, but will wheel the boat anchor for now.

I like "most" everything on it. I would have went with a different color.
How about we all plan to have a get together at the next IH run on the Rubi next year? Isn't it held in Sept?

I have the same cooler on my rig, but that's all I currently have.
I just saw an add in a magazine that claims it's tranny cooler is twice as thick, has fan attached and not need for radiator hookup.

I don't think theres enough cooling from most tranny coolers for that, they are designed to be added on.
