    Ty and I got the wind shield frame out tonight. We installed the windshield ( out of the old frame) and it was the first time either of us had done it. We watched a YouTube video from Scoutparts.com before we did it. We did what they did and I have to say it was very easy. It really looks good. But then we tried the fiberglass lift gate and not so easy. I think the glass has to be cut. We couldn't get it in. I think I'm going to have to take it to a glass shop to get that done. The glass for that was out of a metal lift gate and I think it is a bit too big. My man Ty came through again. He is awesome. Hopefully it will be back together tomorrow and I can let Ty drive her before he has to go to work.

    Great read guys.

    Brings back lots of memories of all the hours working on my scout in WY and after I moved to VA back in 2000. Now she gets started every few months, driven around town for the day, trailered & rock crawled a couple times a year.

    Working mid shift sure saps the motivation to get things done.

    Been spending my free time working on my 1986 chevy military blazer on 1 tons & 37's...

    Later
    Brian

    I feel ya on the se one shift part. I do it every 12 weeks for 8 straight days. It sucks. There isn't ever a dull moment with my Scout. Last Saturday the clutch pedal went to the floor and when you pres it down to shift it started squealing like a stuck pig. Mechanic wants 1400.00 to put in a new clutch assembly. But if I'm spending that much it isn't going to be on a manual that I don't want anyway. So in goes an automatic. I need to find some help to get the T-18 out and pedals and all associated parts. Then make my monthly visit to Scoutco and pick up all the associated auto tranny parts. Get that rebuilt and install. Fun times in the Fulwider Garage......

    Do you know if you have a T19 wide or close ratio 4spd? Do you already have the auto trans lying around? Did you check all the linkage, you maybe able to adjust something, strange the pedal just went to the floor with out some advanced warning...

    Years ago I was going to do what you are planning, so my wife could drive the scout. Never did, just had the flywheel surfaced, install new pilot bushing, throw out bearing and clutch set and wheel it.

    Maybe that is why my wife never goes wheeling with me....

    Brian, I have a T18 I believe. Reverse is all the way right and up. I believe I read that was the shift pattern for a T18. Not sure about the shift ratio though. I'm making my monthly trip to Scoutco to get the tranny and all associated parts on Monday. I want an automatic. Never have liked manuals in anything I've ever had. Hopefully this will make me happy until the kids are out of college. Then maybe I can afford to take it to Scoutco for a overhaul and upgrade the drive train to a more modern one like say a ls Chevy drivetrain. :rockon:

    Update: 727 is ready to be picked up. Rebuilt and ready to go. Pedals have been swapped out, need to put the interior dash and steering column back in. My garage is in disarray. I have never put a 4x4tranny in anything much less a Scout. Here are some shots of what the Scout and my garage looks like. Might be throwing a tranny (transmission lol) installation party soon. Everyone is invited. Haha.

    Well, the tranny still needs to be put in. Ty and myself were on task to put it in about a week or so ago and we realized that the tranny shop had ordered a Chrysler torque converter. So we had to move on to something else so his trip down wouldn't be wasted. We got the hardtop bolted in place and the dash and all put back together. Well this weekend I got the windows put back into the sides and the lift gate. Here is a pic of the side window installed. Hopefully within the next week or so I'll get the tranny back in and be back on the road.....

    Well Ty and I finished up last week. Tranny is in and I have been driving it all weekend. It feels good to have it on the road again.

    Oh yea I owe a shout out to Scoutco for all the parts to get this conversion done. They are great guys who are easy to work with. They made the process much easier.

    John & Johnnie,

    Seems like you guys with a few remarks by Brian are the only active folks on this site. Have enjoyed your discourse. Hoping there will be another larger get together at ScoutCo one of these days that I can make.

    I don't have room right now, with all the projects in the shop. We may be able to do something at the barn, and camp at Natural Chimneys. Just gotta plan a date and DO IT. After about April, my time is going to be nonexistent...got a build to finish by Nationals, and thats when it is due to be out of paint. May have to shoot for March or April, and pray for warm camping weather!

    We really need to find someone else we can impose on once in a while, but it's hard to do when Mike has such great facilities...

    I agree. Mike has a lot going on. I would volunteer but my garage is small and now full of crap that it's hard to maneuver. Who else has the facilities to facilitate a outing so to speak?
