    Hi All,

    Picked up another Travelall over the weekend. Just had a few questions. Is it actually a '68 since it is the older body style? When did they start using T-19s and NP 205s in these? Obviously it is far from stock, so I was just wondering if these came in '68s or if someone swapped them in. Thanks.

    Thats a 68 style, if you go looking for parts , go with that. I-H sold some 68's as 69's based on the time of sale.... can't help with the rest... nice looking truck

    My 67 T-all has the NP 205, and was available with T19. Mine had a 3 on the tree but I put in a T19 along with the 392. I looked at a 58 that was set up with T19 and the transfer case was in the same location but I don't think it was an NP 205.It had the tall iron levers. Also it had the old style truck axles. That truck had been purchased new to shuttle passengers to the top of Pikes Peek. You have a beautiful truck there. I know after seeing yours that I'm going to lift mine some.

    Yep, 37" tires seem huge to me, but they look great on that truck. Can't wait to get the registration done so I can start driving it.

    I have an NP202 in my 67 T-all. It looks nearly identical to a 205 except that the bearing covers around the yokes are cast iron instead of aluminum. I'm not sure what year they started with the 205 but I know that my '74 had one ...until I swapped in another 202. ---Jan

    I wheeled one of those for 18 years and 200,000 miles.
    A. Reinforce the frame under the steering box. 3/16" plate will do.
    b. Box the frame for 8" at all spring mounts.
    c. Carry extra rear axles. Those 37" tires are axle breakers.
    d. Reinforce the rear of the body at the top of the tailgate and at the top corners above the tailgate. Also, drill 4 or 5 one inch holes in the bottom of the tailgate for drainage or the rust worm will get your hinge mounts.

    My new one will have 3/4ton 8-bolt axles and barn doors.

    Great wheeling rig. Don't let anybody tell you its too big!

    This is really good advice. Those corners tend to separate and can get really bad. It is on my list to do to both of mine.

    There are slots already in the bottom of the gate for drainaige...you just have to clean out the crud that has probably accumulated there...and keep em cleaned.

    And they definitely are great wheeling rigs. You may just have to make more three point turns than others! ---Jan

    Would this be something to do on a real 69 to 75?

    I like the rig, real cool, just needs some mud splatered on the sides.

    Doc and everyone,

    Thanks for all the info. I will take care of the recomended modifacations once I get my welder setup. I'll probably end up swapping in some 8 lug differentials from a '73 pickup I have sitting here, so that should solve any axle snaping issues.

    Anyone have pictures of where they reinforced the body at the top of the tailgate and the top corners above the tailgate? Thanks.

    Here are a few more pictures.

    I recently resurrected a 68' Travelall 1100 from the dead.

    It has to be one of the most satisfying builds I have ever done, and pretty much sealed Scouts out of my life forever. :D

    Click here for project: Terror-All

    Hope it helps you with your rig.

    Keep on Binderin',

    John

    Ed,
    I havent seen any cracks there on my 73, but it IS a 2wd, so not as much body flex as a 4wd I would think.

    The D series tailgate hinges can rust freeze, then are forced to move when opening and closing it, causing the mounting area to bend, etc. Keep em lubed well.
    Watch for the hood hinge bolt area to rust from behind.
    The top may rust above the tailgate and above the windshield.

    One of the real problem spots on the D series (69 to 75) is the cowl area. Look for rust in the cowl vents, they go down to the kick panel vents (clean em out!).
    Look for rust holes behind the dash area that let water down onto the floor under the carpet. You know what happens then.
    :(



    Nice truck Sven! :D
