they are the currie johnny joints - those are actually from all pro. I used em on my yota and they worked great - got rid of the squeeks and didn't wear out bushings on every trip.

I made an attempt to put in the motor without modifying the frame etc, but that just isn't happenin' so I chopped some stuff out today - core support and front crossmember/motor mounts. All the while my 8 month old daughter was snoozing about 15 feet away in her Jeep stroller LOL

I was wishing I had a torch of some kind today! BUT, I was glad I had a portaband

Keep up the good work. I'm watching it. Doing the math this week to see if I can afford (and have the time) to part out my old dodge, and use most of the parts in a scout 80.

I need to keep a running cost total for the project, probably about $500 so far but $200 of that is still in the mail on its way to me.

Helps having parts from a previous project!

UPS man is my friend..







I paid the extra $10 for the iron cross on that thing to match the one that is supposed to be in the front bucket (this pic from their site)



But no cross when I got it They are beef but I was pretty bummed my bling bling was missing its bling bling!





Bummer it works out the thing is gonna be sticking out in front of the frame - I'll have to make a tube gusset deal to blend it in or something

Rubicon express also sells JJs if the curry ones aren't ideal for you.

I'm hoping to do this with a second pair of JJs fitted into the frame side spring eyelet on my wagoneer. I have a pivot system up front now and a slider out back that does the same thing (keep the spring level under articulation so it only flexes up and down, no twisting) but it's a rather bulky system that's costing me clearance. the JJs make it a clean, high-clearance installation....

yes you do!!

If I go through with this (the deal on the scout I wanted to buy looks like It may fall through) I hope to spend under 2k.

But thats because I want to reseal my motor (rebuilt in 96, hasnt been run since 98), rebuild my 727 (about 100), buy a 203/205 adapter (450), a 205 (200), get the drivelines re-tubed (about 300), then I have to do highsteer on my 10 bolt, get new wheels for my mtr's, etc.

I think it will end up closer to 4k.

Find any nice scouts for sale for cheap lately, preferabally that run and I could do the con in as is?

no but I know of a 61' for $300 with a half cab top - it's stock though so to do the ruby it would need some tlc. Good starting price though for a straight body etc.

cheap and running dont always go hand in hand. I'm with HOS - thats a loaded question. I been building my free scout for almost 3 years now and it still is not driveable. If you want a scout - pay a little more and get one with some capability in it.
OR
go cheap and work on it for years - then play when your getting too old to enjoy it.

couldn't get a good sideview of where the tire will be but I'm guessing it's 2-3" forward (I forgot to set a benchmark dimension for the center of the old spring, oops)





Rear suspension - I had a block between the frame but ditched it, and shortened the shackles. I want to keep it as low as possible this time..



Front of rear suspension - just tacked but tacked pretty good - this is pretty much set, about 2" back of stock for center pin with wagoneer rear leaf springs flipped front to back for departure angle.

not much to add, squeezed in a little time after work today but it's gotta be about 150 degrees here! Gotta go get some new blades for the bandsaw but in the meantime I used the cutoff wheel to remove the shock towers and bump stop brackets. Also the old spring hangers. I'll be back at it tomorrow..



For some reason my welder is running like crap

Seems like there is no juice and I got it cranked. Not sure why - might have to bring her in

What kind of welder is it? Is it binding in the spool? I had a problem and it ended up being my liner. Runs like a champ now.

The scout looks good. At least you have the dedication to get as much done as possible when youhave time. I am cutious about those rear shackle hangers. I wonder if they will force you all over the road, or if you shuold be fine that way.

I used them on my truck with much longer shackles as a DD - no effects at all honestly. I've heard bad things about putting them in front though. Did some more work tonight, unfortunatly with all the heat and the family gone I think I hit the too much and didn't get as much done as planned. Oh well, got tomorrow and a couple more days

Just cut off the rest of the bump stops and spring hangers tonight, that's about it. Did some runnig around and got some stuff I needed. Tried to pull the spool out but that SOB is in there tight! I dunno, gotta pry it out with something. Shafts are slid out and the carrier bolts and whatever ya call those things are off, it should just slip out.. uh huh...

Dude - how's the cruiser???

Anyway, taking friday off and will be doing more tomorrow, hope to have some progress but it always take ME 10x longer than planned..


oh yea, picked up a new liner and tips for my hobart 135 (poor mans Miller), but didn't get to put it in and test it. I need a bigger welder, but I have done a lot with this one, can't complain..

picked up another "donor" rig, mostly for the straight much less rusty than the one I have top, and a few small things.





next comes the chop in half and off to the yard..

I have both axles stripped completely and I have the ring gears on the new ARB's that are gonna go in the diffs, just need to clear my garage back out and get the gears setup. Got a dial type in-lb torque wrench in the mail on its way and I picked up a digital caliper for making measuring shims easier.
