Why would he spend the money on LPG or FI when it's a temporary mill?

A 408 will run circles around a built 392 and be 250 lbs less! Bolt on MPI is just part of the reason for the swap.

Sorry missed that! My bad! Tar and feather?

I'm not fimilar with a 408? But there are aftermarket MPFI manifolds for the 360, 400 and 440. A freind is doing the 440 and his dad has a 413, he checked and said the intakes were the same. (here say)

We just got done building a Mopar distributor for these for full fuel and spark control ECM.

A 408 is a 4" stroked/.030 over SB 360. You can build your own cheaply because the 4" stroked crankshaft is only ~350.00LINKY . Or buy one built in a crate with a standard bore as a 402 from Mopar Performance.

3 hours-- is a lift install for me.

Oh, well OS you are slow.

The only thing I don't like is the side markers, always dug the stock IH ones.

Funny you picked the one failed D90 color, my 59 is marine blue which is real close to that and I like it. Looks original.

Edit: "You have a Scout?" Had. 1979 SII, 345/727, dual power-loks (I assume that is what they were) weenie little tires though, over half a million miles on it. Fairly decent shape. Bought it off my roommate in college for a dollar. Drove a wheeled it for a couple years and sold it back to him when I graduated as I had the 59 rover by then.

It had character. Wiring was worse than anything british I ever saw, choke was busted so you had to start it with fluid and a gaint 3 foot flame.

The SSII inserts with cab top is awesome. I've only seen one other scout setup this way. You going to fab up some peices to run SSII soft doors and fit them to the cab top or just have no doors?

Anything above 35 mph with SSII inserts and no door coverage can get rather windy. There's a huge difference between a hard door with the window down and an insert with no door. Then again, if you're trailering this thing to your wheelin spot, it doesn't really matter.

This buildup up post rocks ... very inspiring. Keep the pics flowing.

GOOD LOOKING DOG!
The scout will be a nice accessary for the dog.

I sold my dog's (Laddie) scout (1972 Scout II) to one of the NW Binders, after which he pissed in my xfer case when it was sitting in the scout. He never pissed on his scout but has now marked pretty much every part of my rig. BTW - he has never pissed on my wife's rig either, just mine and other wheelers.

Laddie says : Wolfwhistle : that is one good looking dog

You'd better specify Scout wheeling pictures, or you'll get a bunch of OS's Rover

[trembling] pp..pp......pppeee petrified [/trembling]

I lost my web space a while ago and don't have any space to post up pics anymore. I do have a tiny bit of web space with my ISP, but since I use it for other purposes as well, I find that I pretty much have to delete something to add something new. I'll try to get something current to post up here soon. For now, here's a list of "to be done" off the top of my head.... not necessarily in the order listed:

Reinstall windows/hardware into the doors.
Reinstall top and lift gate.
Replace cheap JY RX-7 seats with new racing seats I obtained.
Weld harness mounts into cage & install harness.
Reinstall the heater manifold and defroster ducting (it's cold here)
Install wipers
Install hood
Make & install rock sliders
Mount gas tank skip plate
Interior paint/Herculiner
Install tank for OBA
Plumb the York for OBA
Hook up ARB line
Fab and install front and rear bump stops
Install front lockout hubs
Complete rear exhaust (currently stops right in front of rear diff)
Swap out electric fuel pump that won't keep up with TBI with one that will
Install side view mirrors
Assecory wiring and switched, etc.

I realize not all of that has to be done before it's wheelable, that's about all I can think of right now but I'm sure I'm forgetting something. I'll try to get it out of the garage this weekend and get some current pics.... it's just such a PITA to have to keep swapping tires just get it in & out of the garage. Once it gets "dried in", I can leave it outside and won't have to keep swapping the tires/wheels all the time.

Question for ya.

Have 17" steelies now with 37's and was thinking about the weld on MRW locks like yours. Thanks for coming up with the 132lb weight for the combo, but how much more is that then your trail ready's with tires mounted? Just curious. Thanks.

Sorry, no new pics this weekend. Saturday got consumed with holiday bs and it turned nasty cold today. Digging back through the archives....

this is what it looked like when I drug it home:


This isn't exactly a current pic, but it still looks pretty much the same. It does have front & rear bumpers and a cage installed since these pics were taken:



That'll have to do until I get motivated enough to take some more pics.

OS,

I like this idea. but how tall are the wheel wells. they don't look much taller than stock, just wider & deeper.

how did you attach them on the bottom end? I was thinking something like the factory bolt, but on a different corner of the ubolt plate.
