    Hey guys hope you are all doing good and still enjoying your IH iron like me. Been slow on the Scout lately I had so much going on with my vehicle having to go to the shop under warranty and me and the wifey's 27th anniversary she is a good woman to put up with me. Also worked on one of the atv's and few other things we had going. But I did get the power steering mounted up and am working on getting a new pulley and I washed out the radiator and few other odds and ends. Anyway hey everybody hope all is well.

    I slowed down a bit as well. Body work has buried in what seems to be a never ending exercise. I'm working on quarter panels at the moment, but nothing worth putting in photo. Soon, I hope to have the scout in primer and get final prep ready for paint.

    I am trying to find the right pulley for the ps pump I talked to a couple people today and still not 100 percent so I am calling march pulleys tomorrow to talk to a tech guy. I think I have it figured out but want to be sure I think a Dorman 300-121 will work we will see. Also i got the J**p back from the shop and did the right thing and got rid of it yesterday. i never knew how much I liked my Scout until I bought a j**p man that was a nightmare. So now i'm down to 6 vehicles I have to get busy finding another one. Can't have just one.

    @arkansasdave, is your radiator original and if so, can you pose a picture of your radiator? Specifically where the overflow joins the filler neck? Mine came off and I need to see how it went back together.

    i am going to see if it will hold water so I can use it to run the engine around the place until I get the new one. I think I am going to use a 79' Ramcharger aluminum new radiator it has a center cap, downflow and lower on the passenger side by the water pump and i read about someone else using one in a Scout and had good luck and the size is pretty close to perfect.

    Can you check if this part is soldered on or removable?

    That’s what I figured but didn’t see it. Mine fell off and the jb weld I put on finally gave way.

    I'll look it over close in the morning and see for sure, what drivetrain is in your scout?

    Ok cool same drivetrain mine came with. I ran an Edelbrock carb on my 345 for along time it seemed to like it best, I tried other carbs but it ran out the best.
