Ahh, the curse of the scout build strikes again.
I swear that's the way to get things going in every other area of your life, start building an IH.

|binderbound||I wish. No, I finally got a decent job but had no time to work in my own shop/business so I closed it down. I have no place at my house to work on it so it sits tarped in my back yard. My garage is full of parts and stuff, just no place and no time. I will be married soon and have a family now that absorbes a lot of everything. I have a feeling, by the time I have a place and time to work on it, the stock class will be no more, but we'll see. Thanks.|

I need internals for the tranny. I have an AA reverse pattern full manual valve body and a good torque converter. I need basic rebuild kit, 4 pinion planetary, bolt in sprag, HD clutches/frictions, etc... I really didnt want to bolt in some marginal trans just to pull it out in a few months because it ate itself testing.
I'm not half assing this build for the sake of finishing it. I want to do it as right as I can the first time around.

What's your next "small" purchase?
What do you need right now to get something started/finished?

I don't know if the mount finally tore in the rollover or not - but that's ultimately when I pulled the body off to do the repairs and found that, along with the other mount damaged, the engine mounts folded down (engine trying to exist the bottom) and however many other fatigues and failures.
A few years after the body mount plating, the cab side of the mounts began to fail. Ultimately, this was all "solved" (until the final roll) by coming up off the frame into the seat bars and supporting the body/cage in additional points other than the body mount.

|yotota||In for updates on this one, it looks like a great budget project. And I have to support the fellow PNW guys on here.|

For an update....major work slowdown has really limited my race truck funds. So, not much forward progress as of now.

Looks like the condition of the Scout and frame magnify the look of the welds and fabrication to be 1000X better...
cool project & best of luck with KOH

I really like how you have boxed, plated and wrap the spring hangers to the frame.
Are you going to doing something like this for the body mounts?
I know your cage will go the frame, but those body mounts can fatigue the frame with the cantilever weight they carry. I know your dropping all extra weight, but I found a post by Tom in Montana where his front body mount tore.
