I had purchased a scout that the po said it had over 350,000 miles on it. It was her dads and he lived in New Mexico and drove it back and forth to Alaska. They claim that everything was original, engine, trans, transcase. I did find in the owners manual that the trans had been rebuilt at 210,000 miles. No way could the motor last that long. It runs strong no oil use etc. The speedo did not work when I bought it. I took a cable of a parts rig and my odometer runs backwords, when in reverse the speedo will show miles per hour. My guess is the trans case had been removed and changed. A cable is a cable. My uncle said consider yourself lucky with the odemeter running backwords. But I want the speedo to work. He said you can change the grear in the trans case that drives the cable. Anyone done that before? How do you do it? Thanks!
