    Hello! Thought I would join this forum to not only build a Scout but to build relationships with folks that appreciate neat old rides.
    My name is Dan and my wife’s name is Tosha.
    My wife and I purchased a 1973 Scout ii two years ago and the rebuild is going very slowly. I wanted to buy an old beater pickup to fix up for hunting, fishing, camping and hauling purposes during this endeavor my wife mentioned that she grew up with an IH Scout. Let’s find an old scout for the job she said and I said, I like the sounds of that!
    We found our 1973 Scout ii at a pawn shop of all places, when I spotted it I had to stop and take a look. I talked with the pawn shop owner and he told me that it was indeed for sale “as is” . He mentioned that the engine was rebuilt but never fired ( carb, distributor, radiator and such still needed rebuilt). I pulled the valve covers and it was fresh under the sheet metal so I have to believe it indeed was rebuilt. I didn’t think we were in a position to buy it at the time so I didn’t mention it to my wife. One year later Tosha asked me if I still wanted to buy a Scout to fix up? I had to tell her that I found one a year ago but didn’t say anything about it. “What”!!! You found one a year ago and didn’t tell me? “Let’s go see if it is still there”!
    We drove to the pawn shop and there it was. We looked it over together and she said “ we need to rescue this truck”. We went inside and I let my negotiator do the talking and she bought us a Scout!
    This is our story and we are looking forward to getting this beast on the road. We will need a lot of help from all of you to help us with lots of questions during this process. In closing I hope to make friends and acquaintances along the way.

    Welcome to the Binder world and congrats on your first Scout. One thing you need to know up front is IH ownership is addicting and they have a way of multiplying like Rabbits.

    You picked the best place on the internet to get good info on Scouts and any IH for that matter. Everyone on here is truly trying to help, unlike a lot of “help” you get on FB, etc.

    So you started your first post off in the right forum, now just keep updating it with your work and lots of pics, we like pics, and you’ll end up with a fully documented build of your Scout.

    Good luck and keep those updates coming.

    Welcome to the forum/IH ownership! I can confirm they do indeed multiply(and they dont need pairs to do so :p). Make sure to take lots of pictures, even of things youd rather just forget ever happened; they're quite satisfying to look back at down the road. Unless youre the luckiest folk alive, you WILL find botched fixes/and butchery from previous owners. Dont let it discourage you, rather look at it as comedic value for the thread on previous owners and their fixes(and remember it can always be worse). Once your rig has been fixed to your satisfaction you'll love it forever. Looking forward to your progress.

    I’m AE0FC242-AF67-44D3-819C-CB923DACA347.jpeg DEDFD31F-F62C-40AB-A24F-5279AC1A2A21.jpeg BA2A33FB-FB72-4832-9475-80D222C478CF.jpeg E13CC4B2-F504-4477-9BE1-642666EA1F8F.jpeg Here is some pics of Old Yeller.
    Originally the plan was to give it a good deep clean and fix the necessity’s to get it on the road. This truck spent some time in a barn at one point or another in its previous ownership because it was full of mouse droppings and it smelt like mice bad! The wife said the carpet had to be replaced and the smell had to be eliminated first thing! Well the seats came out then the console then the carpet and cargo mat... well I’m sure you can all relate to what comes next. So removal of the previous items exposed the rusted out the floor boards and bed pan, not good on new carpet so repairs will need to be made before it all goes back together. Nest in the glove box A/C and headliner warranted further tear down. Well one thing lead to another and more and more parts kept coming off and piling up in the garage. I was all over the place with no game plan... not a good idea, I have so much stuff apart that I’m sure I forgot how it goes back together. We aborted the first plan and decided we would go through everything before it hits the road which will take a lot of time and money as we are finding out. It’s all good though, it is a fun project the both of us can enjoy together. My wife is amazing and a very very hard worker but her patience has proven not to be her strong point. She is slowly learning why the old restored collectibles are soo pricey. I have more pics coming along with a brief explanation as time allows.

    Youve described the domino effect perfectly. This phenomenon, believe it or not, explains how one can attempt to swap a radiator and end up rebuilding large gearing components, or in your case: odor elimination leading to major body work. If it aplies to your case, I'd recomend avoiding hours of frustration trying to save hacked wiring; the oem bundles are reproduced and look/fit just like factory and are high quality. As to your piles of parts and avoiding future confusion, thread screws and bolts back into the holes they came out of after the part is disassembled, or bag/tag and masking tape to a larger part for sake of knowing where they go. The service literature is a good read and can help ID some of your various bits and pieces including screws. Leave it by the toilet and you'll have read it within a week

    Your hilarious dude! Thanks for the input. First time on a forum like this and I am struggling to figure out my way around. I will try to check out the service literature in the near future. Thanks again!

    You say I'm hilarious, but I'm speaking from personal experience :D you have to have fun with the frustration otherwise you bog down. The service manual Im refering too runs aproximatly $150ish??? If im remembering correctly. I may not be correct there, but I'll tell you its expensive and its well worth it, I wish I had my doom binder the first two years i spent with my pickup. (The doom binder (biggest binder size they had at staples) wasnt big enough to fit the owners and parts manual with both service manual volumes so i also have one other binder and a book lol)[​IMG]

    Yeller, congrats and welcome. Sounds like you are off to a good start and you are lucky to have a wife that supports/encourages your habit. :)

    I bought my ‘56 Ford because it had a fresh rebuild so I could focus on the interior. After blowing the water pump and radiator, I drove it a couple weeks before sending a rod through the block. It took a couple more years to get back on the rod, but rebuilding the engine was a great experience. I’m pretty sure everyone on this site is familiar with the snowball effect.

    Good luck on the body work trail!
