KOOL beans ! your happening now
Now I can start the real work on it knowing that it's really mine.
Now that has to be comforting! Congrat's
I pre-oiled the engine last night.
I've never seen a filthier engine before! It's nasty.
I expected the grime on the outside, but the inside is just as bad.
Even with clean oil being pumped it turned black very quickly.
I've got the valve cover painted and am waiting on a new gasket.
Next step is to see if it will turn over with the switch and check for spark.
I've got a good used tank and sending unit on its way too. I'm coating the old tank with Caswell fuel tank sealer and will add it to my stock.
I got my used tank in via UPS yesterday.
I pulled the feed tube in preparation of painting the exterior and noticed that it still had a filter on the end (part number 374821C1).
It looked a little crusty, so I ordered a new one.
The valve cover is now painted with some IH red paint that was on sale at TSC, we'll see how long it holds up.
A little progress today, I'm trying to figure out my no spark issue
tested starting circuit wiring for continuity. My "R" terminal needed to be cleaned and in the process the stud for it on the solenoid broke so I had to replace the solenoid. "S" terminal wiring tested good from switch to termination points
Purchased a new coil and installed
I pulled the aftermarket amp gauge out to explore some of the PO wiring
I tested continuity on my coil wire (from coil to distributor) and got nothing. I then tested a known good one and got a beep on my meter. But, when I swapped the wires I still didn't have spark.
The driver's side window regulator is bad, so I tried to replace it. In the process I found that the regulators for an 80 and 800 are different and will not interchange.
I've got a plug wire set ordered. I'm open to suggestions on why I'm not getting spark from the coil.
Today progress includes:
installed new clutch master
installed new clutch hydraulic line
removed old clutch slave and rubber hose
Pics for parts numbers
I ran out of time and after looking at my rubber hose that connects the slave and hard line decided that it might need to be replaced too.
Thanks! It's slow going, but I'm getting there. I'm still cleaning out the original fuel tank's varnish and will either use it or another one that I got that needs to have a couple of holes soldered. My Father in law is a Coppersmith and said that he can do it. I ordered a new rubber clutch hose and hope to have a working clutch by next weekend when I can work on it again.
That pre-oil was the best thing you could have done for that motor. Keep it up!!
I got the new clutch slave cylinder hose in and as soon as I get some free time I'll install and see if I have a clutch.
The internet (thanks Biotex) provided me with a very affordable hose option ($10 shipped on Amazon).
Part number and a pic:
installed new clutch slave and hose
removed thermostat housing
After I got the clutch master and slave mounted and plumbed I immediately noticed a leak at the clutch master. I had read about sometimes needing a 3/16 fitting to make it all work so I ordered 2 (just in case) and will see if that fixes it.
My thermostat housing was nasty inside!
I wire cupped it and sprayed with some IH red. My order has been placed for two thermostat gaskets and a Robertshaw thermostat.
The Scout started right up before I did this work so that made me happy to work on it.
The problem with the thermostat is all that rust and crud that it turned into. You should clean that out.
Oh, I saved it to reintroduce to the coolant. Thanks for the heads up!!!!

The Champagne headliner was beginning to sag and I didn't want it to get worse, so I carefully pulled it out and saved all the parts.
I really don't see myself ever using it because I'm not going to keep the top installed on this Scout. I'll store it under my bed until I figure out what to do with it.
It's complete minus the short piece that goes across the back.
Still waiting on parts, so I had to do something.
I got my new Robertshaw thermostat installed today.
I also attempted to bleed the clutch hydraulics.......... again.
I've tried everything I know and just can't get a pedal.
Open to ideas.
After fighting the clutch, I decided to pull the fuel selector valve and get it cleaned.
What does the dash fuel switch do?
Switch between left and right tanks?
Randall, the dash fuel switch is for the fuel gauge. Tells it which tank to read I believe. I can never get mine to work right but thats another story. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the build. Rich
