Meh, just a knock off, very nice work. I like the attention to detail. I have a couple scale Scouts. I still need to do a rebuild on my Go Cart. I will be following this, NICE WORK.

GreenGo80-the big one in the background is four wheel drive

JetFxr- I've seen the rc crawler and i envy it....i thought i was decent at making rc car bodies but that tops the cake.....tell me a little bit about that Scout-kart.....from what i understood they were some sort of promo or giveaway.....how many are out there? it looks pretty fun

I will be hustling on the Scout III this weekend and will definitely get some pics up.....i might be covered in "sanding dust"

I checked out the one I have out back. it has a 5 speed, 11 hp engine and a walking beam front end. It also has working head lights time to look for some more wheels like the rears to put some atv rockers on.

Samford, what do you know about the 5 speed transmission that is part of the rear axle? good, bad?

As I understand it, the carts were a dealer promotional item. Story I have is that if you bought a new Scout, you could buy a cart. What I have found is there are four out there beside the one I bought. I understand they were made by a company that also made other promotional carts, I have a cart chassis from one of these also. My cart is in Minneapolis waiting for a truck heading this way. I will do a frame off on it when it shows up, I have worked with Mike Moore to get the required decals. Tempted as I am, I will keep it stock. I love the idea of getting one of those 4x4 carts and making a rock crawling Scout cart but I think it is to rare to hack up.

Looks to me that it lacks triangulation. Nice work otherwise.

'71 800B- Post a picture and i will see if i recognize it but i really dont know that much about garden tractors, Gramps and I just use what we have.

JetFxr- Its too bad you are so far away cuz the guys at IHWR in April would get a kick out of that thing. That looks like a Briggs motor in there, what hp?

Chris- Cool story bro...... hey can you build a mini cage for me?

ok some updates for today.....Gramps had the day off and was on a mission to get the hood done

but before that.......here is the exhaust painted with the hangers



after we got everything installed, the carb rebuilt, and the body put on, I took it for the maiden voyage around the block. It did great and even got into some water!!!! You know, real triple diamond stuff

heres the hood

That hood is friggin I will get a picture when it stops raining. The trans I have has the drive pulley on top of it and the axles come out the sides of it. I could see a rear suspension working as the drive belt would allow some movement if set up right.

I am really diggin your build. Keep it up

samford, that thing is totally insane! I have one of the original promo karts, problem with it is there's no room in it if your adult, unless your double jointed or a "little person".

Top notch work, can't wait to see more progress, the craftsmanship is amazing!

Hers my kart:

These little karts are cool pieces of IH history....that one looks like it has a Honda clone OHV motor....I'm guessing that its been replaced. I wonder what came in this originally?

Anyways, progress on the Scout III

-Second try on the hood hinge didnt work, now for Plan D
-The scout is now one color (first coat of primer before sanding)
-Started planning for the headlights, taillights, gas cap, and door handles

Pics

I have to agree, it is pretty amazing! I have to admit I was pretty bummed when I picked up my kart and saw the layout up close, just cause I could not ride it

Oh yea, Samford, mine does have a honda in it, 6.5. Not sure what they used originally, I would guess a Tecumseh 3.5 or 4hp, Some of the other cars that company produced I think used them. Tec's were in pretty tight with the minibike/yard kart companies that were still afloat in the '70's-80's.

When you all done shaping etc.. what do you guys use to seal and strengthen the body? What kind of woods are you using?

the skeleton is made out of redwood....its a little soft but the paint will harden it up a little bit
and the panels are made out of masonite

we are using a primer sealant.....it wont see much weather and will always be garaged.....maybe a little dirt, we will see
