    Happy with the overall inside of the engine, so far.

    Awesome score for your boy! What's even cooler is that he has you in his corner.

    JJs wiring harness came in yesterday and a good bath cleaned it up nicely! A few connectors off the old harness or new ones and I’m golden. JJ, can’t thank you enough...this really improved my attitude since I hate messing with electrickery.
    Thanks again, Perdido 1A7DD8BD-DC4D-4C80-88A4-7B3A40CCB278.jpeg A3EED15F-C2B3-48B1-9822-B5885FFF174A.jpeg F753E4F8-160A-4492-BB32-1BF6D246B3D9.jpeg

    Pulled the water pump and ancillaries and it all looks pretty crappy, but I’ll try to clean things up before I buy new parts. The water pump, alternator and PS pump all spin smoothly and may actually work, but they are definitely suspect.

    Glad to help on the harness, looks really sharp! I used fish tape to pull it thru the frame on mine, starting from the front back. The later ones just run under the floor.

    While waiting on body parts to come in I’ve been cleaning and repairing smaller parts like mounting hardware, valve covers, rebuilt the dizzy, etc. I cut up some old angle iron to make brackets for the rear braces which worked out well except when the clamp slipped and the angle iron locked up the saw...almost had to change my underwear! I pulled the water pump housing and it’s two tubes that run to the heads and they are in rough shape and I’ve got them soaking now after I pulled some parts out to make room. Pictures show mounts and hardware after an overnight soak in SC followed by a soak in Evaporust.

    May save you a headache. But id put on a new water pump. Depending on how long its been since it ran, it may just leak on you. Just a preventive maintenance step is all. If you do, get the pump with a cast iron impeller. Theyre better than the steel stamped 1s.

    Jeff,
    Thanks for the heads up and I’ll order one. John and I made good progress today removing the old bed, getting oil to the rockers, welding up a few places and I’m happy to say that this old Scout has better bones than I thought it did. We also remounted the rebuilt dizzy and made sure it was clocked with #8 on compression. I’m surprised that the engine turns as smoothly as it does after priming it and that makes us all happy!

    I too am a big fan of Evap-O-Rust. It is a great product. You guys are moving right along too! Wow! Engine did prime up nice too. Congrats.

    I’m thinking about sandblasting and epoxy priming the tub before I install the rear bed so I can better protect the supports. How about welding from underneath instead of thru the rear bed?
    Thanks, Perdido

    Cleaning up the water pump housing, water tubes and the heads where they fit exposed corrosion and a not so smooth surface. The water pump housing can be fixed, but what about the heads? What’s the best way to clean them to get a surface that the O-rings can seal to?
    Thanks, Perdido

    I am not a good welder so I can't answer that one. But, on the heads, I would start with a small putty knife to scrape, then a small wire brush, then steel wool, and last emory cloth. You probably won't be able to get them super duper smooth but probably good enough to seal. The IH manual says to lightly coat brake fluid on the o rings to lubricate them and to slightly swell the rubber for seal. I don't know if that is necessary with the modern ones. Maybe I have gotten lucky evey time as I have no leaks in any of mine and I have never used brake fluid.

    JJ,
    Thanks, I ended up using a small drum flap sander on the heads and the water pump housing and it worked great...same thing I use for porting heads. I stopped by FLAPS today and picked up 4 O-rings and they fit perfectly, so I may have a leak free engine. Did some more small part prep, cleaned and organized the shop (grinding welds with a flap disc creates a lot of airborne crap), painted some parts to test for color and fabbed a few parts. A really good day and I got to sit on the grandkids this 3EDBF15A-0734-4CAC-B5A2-F9C76BF0652D.jpeg 14C25FFD-1198-457E-B7B6-DF61F40A1B55.jpeg AAEE93E3-A60A-4F87-AE64-91AE9E153093.jpeg E4A499C0-E021-4DC6-9E10-B97595DECB8F.jpeg 162E9960-EF7E-42D4-A2EE-127BC021ADEC.jpeg afternoon.

    Dang, you are really rocking that truck! You'll have it up and moving soon by the current rate of progress.

    Stopped by my FLAPS this morning and picked up a water pump, power steering pump, alternator, master cylinder, hoses, gaskets, etc. and was almost surprised that they had everything in stock, but they usually do. They moved my pulleys to the power steering pump and alternator, so that’s one job I don’t have to deal with. The prices were much better than Rockauto, eBay, and the chain stores and I left my cores which is also one less hassle. Once I pickup a new carb I’ll see if it actually runs, heck, I might even do a compression check and leak down...talk about putting the cart before the horse.

    Still cutting out rust in the bed and I’m always amazed at what some people do with body work. The rear braces are beat and bent, but relatively level which is a big surprise. The rear support ‘only’ has a few rust thru spots in it and I think it can be repaired, but the front deck support is Swiss cheese and I’ll probably replace it with something a little more durable. I’m going to order a one piece rear deck, weld some metal along the lower edges of the wheel wells and interior sides of the box to give me a straight and level surface to butt the new deck to...most of it is pretty rotten. Does anyone know if the edge is all spot welded?

    Placed an order for a lot of body parts today and the shipping will be more than my son paid for the Scout! Rear bed, floors, supports, dog legs, etc. and I’m hoping it will all be in by October since that’s blast and prime time. Playing with the hvac system and ordered a mock up from Vintage Air to start the process. I’ll be using round gauges and want to install the vents in the dash and I think there will be room. Body will come off the frame this weekend and I’ve got the rotisserie mounts fabed up in preparation so I can pull the rolling frame out and start prepping it too. Busy week so far!

    Built a 3’ brake press to help with some sheet metal, fabbed up a few patch panels, cleaned up a lot of the old sheet metal parts for recycling and finished repairing and fitting the drivers side inner fender and outer fender. Progress is slow, but steady and the rust is slowly going away. Chomping at the bit for the new body parts to come in so I can begin fitting and installing. HVAC mock up will be here today and I’ll do a trial fit...fingers crossed!
