Default Offical 1966 Scout 800 Half Top Rebuild

This will be the start of my rebuild story.

I found my Scout on CL. It was sitting in a shop about 2 miles from my house. The guy that had it was going to restore it and he started with a bolt cutter, thank goodness he quit when he did. He did get to cutting the e-brakes, speed-o cable and off all things the throttle linkage.

I payed $800 for it. The body is in fair shape, the bed is rusty and it had no fuel tank, or filler neck. He said the motor ran but smoked.

The seats were trash and the seats frames had been cut all to hell. The wiring was fair all but the rear end.

The half top is ok but has some small rust holes at the bottom on one side and it looks like someone sat on the top, should pop out.

I am not going the purest way so there will be some parts that I will have for trade, not much. Things like the wiring and vac wipers to start with.

Parts I will be looking for are, e-brake cables, all, scout seats, inside heater duct from firewall to dash.

Looks like a good start. I have a '67 800 and you are welcome to anything you need from it that you mentioned such as ebrake cables and heater duct if they are still in it, my axles are gone but think the cables are still there. I don't have seats but since we are going to Alpine next weekend you might PM BioTex and see if he remembers seeing any and we can drag some home for you.

Let us know what help you need along the way and I am sure there is someone here who can help at least a little.

The E-Brake cables are actually different between the 80's and the 800's. The 80's need a much longer cable than the 800 does. Easier swap going from an 80 to 800 but not the other way around.

HTH.

EDIT. I just realized V's Scout is an 800 as well so this will work. Sorry for the confusion, I assumed 80 with the half cab.

Thanks guys, I have sent the motor to Harris Engine & Grinding and should hear back from hin this week on what the damage will be. I will be here in OH for about 2 more weeks. I hope to get the frame, axles and springs blasted and primed when I get home. I have some body work that I can do and some I can't. Who is the door/window man in the club?

Called Super Scout and had about $200 in parts for springs and frame sent to my house so they will be there when I get home. I have about 1 more week here and then its time to do some work on the 66. I need to blast and paint the frame and check out the difs.

Called Rock Auto and got brake parts shipped home. This job is draging on and I am jumping to get home and work on the scout and make my first GCB meeting and put a face to the crew.

Well I got home last night and spent 1 night and had to go to Gun Barrel City, TX to work 30 more days, this time it's night shift. I do have a lot of new parts at home, brake parts, bushing, axle stuff and paint. I was thinking about geting a 100lb soda blaster from Eastwood and have it there when I get back home. Any one think they could use one?

I have the 9" brakes on my 800 anyone know were I could get a set of 10 and 11" backing plates and drums for my 27"s
