    73 Scout II is by far the best looking year of all the scouts...best grill and orange from the factory :)

    Couple things worth noting...

    AFAIK in 1980 with the diesels, the only gearing options you had were 3.54 and 3.73. I don't want you to waste your time building a flux capacitor in vain. :D


    You mean the bulkhead connector? :confused:
    It changed style somewhere around '77 or '78, but on up through '80 they still had a harness plug through the firewall at the fuse block...and they still cause trouble, too. ;)

    ya got that right mike! mine was nasty when i pulled the wiring. it wasn't the cause of my woes, but would have been at some point in time.
    gotta agree the 1973 scout was the best looking. i like my traveler for the extra room to haul gear, but it's butt ugly. what me worry? :D

    <<Next is the 76 Patriot Scout, even though it seems not much more than a color scheme.>>

    now *that's* what I'd *really* like! I have a few pics of one that I'd upload, but until I find a spare $20, I'll have to be a registered user. :(

    How much would one cost, I wonder.<sigh>
