    Well the rewiring is almost complete. All that's left is the reverse lights. We had what I would describe as a sonic boom last week when trying to fire it up. It was a backfire that was so loud my neighbor across the street thought something had blown up behind her. Hopefully my power valve survived. We did get it to fire but it ran really rough. Still can't get the electric choke to work. The wiper motor is kicking my butt. We tested it and it spun really fast. But when it is in the truck it won't move the wipers. I called super scout and talked with them and found out that there should be three bolts holding it in. I only have one. That was the way I took it out. I looked and can't find any other tabs for it to bolt to the cowl. So either the PO had it installed incorrectly or they have rusted off. But my man Ty is coming over today to straighten me out. He has been a lot of help. He's the Man. Hopefully we can get it running and drive it today. I need to go out and take out the front drive shaft and take it to the driveshaft place here in town and get it extended. It is fully extended now so it won't work. That's about it.

    Hey Zuke thanks for the back seat. It cleaned up well and looks good sitting back there. I owe you one. Hopefully it will be running this weekend. I'm itching to drive it. Thanks for all your advice and help.

    Glad the seat worked out for you, so Last I heard was the ignition wasn't throwing a good spark last night, did you get any further yet?

    Not yet waiting for the new ignitor to come in. Should be here today. Then hopefully I'll be able to get it running and can drive it.......I can't tell you how much help Ty was. The driveshaft will be finished by next weekend and I can test out the 4x4. Thanks again.

    Oh yea, it looks like I'll be needing a new windshield frame from Mr. Moore as well as the hard top. When trying to put the wiper motor in the tabs for two of the three bolts that hold it in place have rusted off....... Just my luck.....:oops:

    I am enjoying reading this thread. I will be doing the re-wire to my truck in about a month, what fun that will be.
    I had an automatic choke on my 2300 carb and I had nothing but problems with it, so I ditched it for manual, have you thought about doing that?

    Keep up the good work guys.

    Yes I have. I'm still having issues with it. I need to call EZ wiring to find out where in the fuse panel it is coming from. Because it won't cut off. I'll be disconnecting it soon. What wiring manufacturer are you going to go with? I have used Ron Francis and Now EZ wiring. Both work well. For old eyes like mine the Ron Francis is easier to read the wires. But it does cost a bit more. Painless is another option. They have a water proof unit and connectors. That one is around 590.00 though. There are alot of guys on here who are very knowledgable and are willing to answer any of your questions. Have fun with it.

    I like to old fashon way of things just because thats what I am familiar with, so I like to manual choke. The electronic choke was too sensative and just gave me more problems. I am buying the harness from Super Scout Specialists. There are so many out there, but I thought that who better to buy it from than the people who know these vehicles the best. Plus I just want to support our Light Line dealers.
    I agree with you, there are a lot of people on here that know what they are doing and willing to help you out.
    Hope you are able to get that Scout up and running soon. It is a nice looking one.

    Update, I finally got it started. Now I just need to get it timed. Anybody want to enlighten me as to which way the timing tab reads. Is BTDC below 0 or above it. Above my tab is only one mark which is 5 degrees and below goes to 25. Want to finish this thing soon. I'm itching to drive it........

    As you are standing in front of the truck looking down at the timing marks, BTDC is to the left (The side that goes up to 25). And if you didn't know it already you time off #8.....

    And I think I read somewhere that it is supposed to be set at 5 degrees BTDC. Is that correct.

    I've heard run as much timing as it'll take without being hard to start hot. Mine's about 10 BTDC.

    What Ty said isn't bad... I usually start at just left of 10º, about 12º. Drive it for a while and if everything is good, I leave it there. If you notice pinging under load, Bump it a few degrees further to the left (Advanced) until the pinging is gone.

    These things are pretty tolerant of the timing being off. which is both good and bad, it will let you run without being perfect, but that also means it will let you run without the best efficiency. If a few tenths of a mile per gallon are important to you, then you want the timing to be just barely advanced enough to prevent pinging. (This means you are running as lean as you can get away with, burning as much of the gasoline coming into the cylinder as possible), but it also is harder on the engine and valves, as they don't get as much lubrication and cooling from the gasoline. No one buys an International for the gas mileage, so a little extra advance, and a little unburned fuel, though bad for the environment and your wallet, will keep your SV motor happier.

    /Thread Drift

    Hit ALT+0186 on the number pad....

    If you want to learn the keystroke of something;

    Start -> Run
    charmap.exe

    Make sure the font selected is your current (Destination) font, double click the character you want and look at the bottom line of the dialog box to see the keystroke, You can also cut and paste from the application...

    UPDATE***** yeah I finally got to drive it after all of the BS it has thrown at me. Now I'm going to let it get cold and see if she will restart. Something tells me it's going to be hard to start. But we will see. It is timed at zero. The distributor can't go back anymore because it is hitting.
    Something else that I noticed is the power steering is nice but the truck kinda likes to move around a lot easier. The steering wheel is off center when driving. Not sure why that is. I lined it up with the marks on the steering adapter and made sure the wheels were straight. Just a much different feel. I only got up to 20 mph in the neighborhood. So I don't know what it will be like at highway speeds.

    To give you some timing adjustability, just move all of the plug wires 1 spot over and turn the dist 45 degrees.

    Glad to hear you got it goin!

    It's scary riding in Ty's Scout...but, then, I really think that it's due to the DRIVER in that case...;)
