    Well, what's a few years or five? Still enjoy seeing the additional upgrades, and in a selfish way, I hope this thread keeps going for another five years! But I'm sure your goal is more like five weeks :cornfused:!

    :thumbs up:
    Your builds are just as nice!!! :yes:
    Lol! I think everyone is getting tired of this forever build! I am ready to just drive it but I as you know they are never "done" so stay tuned!

    Got the upgraded power steering pump installed and was very pleased with the added power. Second best upgrade is the PSC steering box/power steering assist ram! Wow! Easy one finger turns of the steering wheel while in park makes it feel like it has 29” tall tires installed!

    Did have a setback however. Once the pressure was up from the power steering pump I applied the brakes a few times to purge the air in the system. Got out and noticed a fluid leak. Turned out the brass proportioning valve split inside the lower mounting hole. When the brakes are applied it looks like a sprinkling system coming from the mount hole – brake fluid everywhere! I can only think that it is an internal machining error so will have to order another.

    I also received a couple of Tabor’s IH water tube clamps and installed those. I used the two best clamps I had when I assembled the engine but when I saw these, I figured they were a pretty good upgrade to what I used.

    Ok the fun has begun! :no:

    [​IMG]

    I have been working with Tracy (Bussy) via text on this and think I have the pattern correct with his great input. Ring and pinion experts please chime in if you think I should make any more adjustments. Backlash is .008, runout is less than .002 and pinion preload is 22 in lbs.

    First attempt after checking backlash.

    Thanks for the input!! :thumbs up: First time setting up a ring and pinion and was second guessing myself. I have been putting this part of the build off for years!

    Hey thanks Justin!! Appreciate it! Going to the nationals is definitely on my bucket list! :yes:

    Got the rear ARB completely installed and tested out fine.

    [​IMG]

    Got to finally install these Dutchman Axles from IHPA we got way back in 2015!

    [​IMG]

    Hoping to have the front ARB done or at least close enough tomorrow so I can get measurements for the front drive shaft and get that ordered.

    Completed the ARB install in the front axle! Now it really is “All Wheel Drive”! :cowboy:

    [​IMG]

    A little more work to get this ARB in verses the rear. Had to remove the passenger side spring in order to spread the housing. During mockup of the axle’s way back in the beginning of the build I made a mistake. :hammer: Should have done all of this while they were out of the Scout! :laugh:

    [​IMG]

    Pretty much the same as the rear except the inner axle seals. Had the old-style seal and used the newer style. Not sure how that old seal actually prevented water from entering the diff!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Assembled the 4340 Chromoly front axle shafts and installed those.

    Once the differential was back together I was able to get the drive shaft measurements to Tom Woods and they built the 2” shaft.

    Sitting at ride height

    [​IMG]

    Full droop. No binding but its close!!

    [​IMG]

    I was a little worried about the shaft contacting the transmission oil pan but it clears.

    [​IMG]

    The airline routing follows one of the hydraulic hoses up then I passed it through the frame right behind the power steering box back to the driver’s side fuel tank compartment were the air pump resides.

    [​IMG]

    Hope to road test tomorrow. :bananrap:

    Naw……..but your wish is my command! ;)

    [​IMG]

    Todays work - after reading Jerry’s thread torque specs for Warn locking hubs? and looking at the bolts and broken lock washers/tabs on mine I realized an upgrade was required!

    Hey Josh, do you think we could help poor Jay out by offering to break it in for him? Or even perhaps a long-term test drive? For no extra charge mind you!

    Jay, I've (probably incorrectly) assumed that the 80s and 800s had pretty similar bodies, the 6 and 8 cylinder lines notwithstanding. So..... do the 800s have the second X brace under the DS floor pan or was that just for additional good looks/stiffening?

    I’d be afraid to drive it. I prefer the slow tractor like handling of my stock scouts lol!

    Lol! You guys come down and you can take her out for a cruise! But I get some free body work and paint on Krats from both of you!!!! :laugh: :yes: :thumbs up:
    You are correct they are pretty much the same. Once I removed the drivers seat base from the floor it was a little flimsy. I thought about matching the C channel like the passenger side to stiffen up the floor but adding the "extra" X brace was easier. Would have been fun to do the same on the passenger side but I got lazy looking at all the tack welds on that C channel!

    Now this sounds like a plan!! However, I have a feeling it would be more IH yaking and beer drinking than work!! :beer: :beer:
