    Hey all! I'm pretty new to the site but I know there's a ton of knowledge here! I recently recieved my line set ticket for my 62' and need some help figuring out the codes. Any help would be appreciated! 20200730_105814.jpg 20200730_105417.jpg

    If you do a google search or a search on this forum I believe there is a TON of info on how to dissect. Or, you can google the individual codes or numbers.

    I'm your huckleberry. What do you need to know?

    First, the International Scout Encyclopedia, the 2nd Edition of which is just about out, may answer many of your questions.

    What I can tell you to start is the you have a later production '62 Prototype 4x2 (don't let the 'Prototype' carry you away, that's an IH term for a standard build configuration). It's in 4154YL Yellow (a catchy official name!). It was built as a Cabtop (IH for pickup) with very few options. T-90 (IH T-13) 3-speed and the standard 4-152 engine. RA4 rear axle was the standard open-diff Spicer 27.

    It has one notable feature, roll-up windows. August of '62 was just about the first time they were widely available. Previous they had sliding windows only. Plus they were an interim version that were different than the rollups that came out later in 'early '63.

    Again, ask any specific questions you want... though bearing in mind I and many others will be at Harvester Homecoming this weekend.

    Thanks for posting this. I've seen some IH related sites list the 2nd edition as available sometime in September 2020.

    Without spilling too many beans, can you share if you were able to go into further depth into the SR-2 ?

    thank you

    September 2020 is about right. If lucky, maybe a little earlier. We will have copies to view at Harvester Homecoming this coming Saturday (10:30AM and 2:30 PM in the old Scout factory) , as well as some special pre-buy deals. Bring your first editions for John and I to sign.
    Little bit more on SR2s... nothing earth shattering. Goldies, mainly.

    thank you for the update Jim.

    I'm a bit too far south to attend the event, but well-wishes for all those who are able to attend.

    Thank you! Thats a huge help! Funny thing is, it hasn't gone far from where it was sold, ive been trying for about 3 years to get my hands on it because its been sitting in a field for atleast 6 yrs. But its solid, even put a battery in it filled the tires up and drove it on the trailer. I'm smitten, but just like my jeep I know it'll be a big hole to dig out of to get it to where it needs to be ‍:pinch:

    Did you do the engine pre-oiling so the camshaft doesn't have future problems?

    Welcome. The hole may have gotten bigger. Pre-oil is important for these engines after they have been sitting. At least that’s what everyone tells me around here.
    Pictures???

    She's rough but solid. Somewhere down the line they replaced the engine and transmission. So far all we can figure is a small block chevy v8 with an "odd" transmission configuration... but it works for the moment.

    FYI - in the rear - those are "Sport Top" Scout bumpers.
