Pascoscout The hope is to have a complete scout again someday...so that I can actually start my build up. I looked at buying "rust free" but people want so much for them. I am not in a big hurry so I thought I'd rebuild one, and this way I know whats been done to it from the ground up.

Once I finish the body rebuild I figure I'll start a build thread here. Plans for this are full width 3/4 ton axles, SOA, and a 4bd2T diesel engine among other things.

1966Scout800 Yep, brackets looked like Ruffstuff's just figured I'd ask. For $800 bucks thats hard to pass up considering the time it would take to come up with your own.

Yep; My dad is a mechanical engineer so he had the 4link already drawn up in Inventor. The brackets from RuffStuff were really close to what he had drawn up already and should save a ton of time. Plus he bought them when Dan was having his end of year clearance so he got that whole pile for around $800.

karphreek Jen,
I like the looks of that!!

1966Scout800 Dboy, are the link parts from RuffStuff ? Im thinking about biting the bullet one of these days for my next project. Well for me I went on a ten hour bus ride to Boise, Idaho to play baseball in a blizzard. Brother got his license today and I somehow agreed to let him to drive my shitpile while Im gone at school until his Scout 800A is done.

lagit_fj40 asked my girl friend of three years to be my wife. and put in an offer on a house.

I have one of those adapters, but then bought 2 or 3 of the CS-series pig tails and just hard wired it into place.

Cheaper than the adapter, cleaner, too.

I then ran a 4g battery cable from the CS130 (105amp) alt to the Ford solenoid, bypassing the dash.

I'm trying to decide if I put the CS130 into the new wheeler, or buy a CS144 before I do the swap. I've heard "Buick Roadmaster" as a good choice for getting the right clocking CS144 in 140amp trim.

I got a little time in the shop.

I'm waiting on parts to arrive to finish the steering redo, so I worked on the FI side of things a bit.

One Goldbox distributor now Duraspark'd



And a new hole in the firewall.


This should let me use the stock GM firewall plug thing, by pressing it from the engine bay to the cab, and using two pieces of flat-strap to hold it tight.

ECM wires come in in the "elbow" of the heater duct, and will then go up and over and mount the ECM under the glovebox.

Spent more time last night soldering up wires and getting relays installed and so forth. Awaiting a coil plug before I can really be done setting things up.

Started to mount the HEI module to the distributor last night, too.

Discovered 1979 heaters use a larger fan than 1973. The aftermarket larger-squirrel-fan modification would only gain me a touch bigger fan, so I'm leaving it alone.

It will move but not much since its only reading a small drop. But its not really that good anyway.

Also won't need a larger wire since I am only going at most 12'' to the battery. Could do 6 gauge min. at that distance and be OK but I will make it bigger than that. I will over do it as I have some extra 1/0 laying around. If I can find a terminal to fit it and the alt.

Yes, it goes through the dash and down to a plate. The stock body mount is gone and so then there is a tube that goes from the plate down to the frame.

Just a note for those thinking of more juice, you will need to make a couple changes. The stock 10 ga blue wire is not big enough to handle that much power, and the stock amp meter might just melt.

For Scouty rig we put a terminal block on the fire wall (circa 1990 chevy pickups have nice ones. ) From the alt to the terminal block is a #4 or #6 wire. The original blue alt lead will connect to the terminal block. So that wire will just feed the cab. The second blue wire that comes back out and connects to the starter will be moved to the terminal block too.
Matt will run a new #4 from the terminal block to the starter to complete the charging loop back to the battery. You can get #4 welding cable for a reasonable price and solder up some connections. I know I posted something about that before.

HOS good to hear about the boys.
Don't forget you will be claiming them on your 2012 taxes. Might want to let the EX know about this just before she files her returns next year. My bro went through that issue with his ex a while back.
