Frame mounted pumps works fine especially on a non baffled stock tank anyway. Plus no dropping tank to change. Keep a spare and change in 10 min on side of road. But The Airte E2000 works as mentioned and is affordable. You will need a vette filter/reg if you fuel rail is returnless just mount down stream of pump, return line can go in to an EVAP port on tank or add a return to filler neck.

The DD gauges are nice spendy. But Speedhut are affordable and you can fully customize faces to what you want and can add text and graphics. http://www.speedhut.com/gauges/

Get a Scout II PS box. Install. Buy PS line for LS. Cut the oring side off flare for the SII box, no special lines needed or made, takes 10min to do if you can 45* flare line. If you get an 1980 PS box its oringed like the LS already. If your worried you'll blow a line in BFE you can get a adapter for the lline too.

If you don't want to do PS right away you can run with out it remove pump and just reroute the belt IE will need different belt.

If you will never have hard top on then just leave compressor off. It runs on its on belt anyway.

But for A/C VA is a complete waste of fucking money. You have to high mount a sansen pump so extra money for a bracket, compressor etc etc. If you have the sock SII evaporator, if not buy one used, and just run the GM compressor and get a new condenser/drier. Make lines and enjoy.
And its a pain in the ass to run the radial compressor as OBA over a york, not worth the trouble.

Cool build but it would have been even cooler if you had kept with international scout v8 because they are great sturdy engines. The 5.3 will be fun to drive and efficient but nothing, like the old IH engine.good luck with the project

Yeah because the 150hp and 10mpg of an SV is great.

VSS HELP

First, thanks for everyone?s help! Now, I need more help haha.

I had my wire harness made and tuned by PSI conversions. Everything is good other than the VSS plug.... my transfer case is np241c pass drop. The harnesses does not properly mate due to size difference. See pics. Any suggestions? Thank

GM changed the VSS sensor in early 2000's.

One buy correct plug for your VSS you have in trans case.

Two the later drivers drop 241 VSS should thread into you case, will be correct plug. Should be AIRTEX/WELLS 5S4663.

Love the thread. I just started my 1975 LS swap last week here in Augusta, GA. Using a 2002 5.3L 4L60e and NP241c. The fuel is my biggest concern because I havent been able to visualize what I am going to do. Been googling LS swap fuel kits for the scout but havent found any in depth. Looking forward to your progress.

Don't know that you are going to find any Scout, or, sounds like Scout 2 specific in your case, swap kits.

The short of things, is probably you will want a fuel tank with a pump built in, although you can do an external pump. You're also going to need to have a (fuel) return line to the tank.

Those are the basics.

Does that answer the basics, or am I completely misunderstanding your question?

Scoutco and anything scout sell fuel system parts for SII as well as motor mounts. Google each for their websites.

You can use a frame mounted fuel pump and run a return to top of the tank or sender. But most time you need a new tank anyway. Binder Boneyard has new large capacity aluminum tanks not cheap but way lighter than the steel 33 gals units plus will not rust! There is swap info in my sig for SII.

It will take a while to recoupe cost of a swap unless you drive it daily. You can buy alot of gas for what it cost to swap it in the end, but some people can't math well. What you do gain is way more power and drivablity and less stops at the gas station is a plus.

There are universal inline pumps for the frame rail that come with a mounting bracket. There's also a 33 gallon Scout FI tank. I would find out what they have for a sump though. Tanks Inc. has all the parts to convert a factory tank.
Not a fan of aluminum tanks. Seen too many crack a leak. Stainless would be good.

Yeah i agree with the AL. But I would not run a steel tank at all it will rust.

Yes thank you. I went to Anything Scout and got a new fuel tank and all the parts I need for the fuel system.
