    Soft brake peddle & brake line leak

    When you change the line you will need to bleed the brakes. In-line tube makes a complete set of lines and being your Scout is over 40 years old it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to change them all.

    Getting a 77 Scout 2 out of a field

    Before spending big bucks on wheels and tires I would look underneath the Scout. Unless you are sure you can tackle all the rust issues you may be better off passing on this one. Usually when a vehicle is sitting in a field the rust is extensive. Depending on where you are I have a set of...

    Scout II replacement rocker too short?

    First you have the rocker too far forward. It is actually a cover rather than structure. The cut out portion goes between the dog legs Which is the part that curves down in the picture. I hope you are replacing or at least re-enforcing your inner rocker as well

    Road Salt experts?

    The major problem with washing the underside is if you have any areas where the snow and ice can pack in and you don’t get removed with a under side wash you will be trouble.

    Painting question

    Harbor Freight does market a”touch up” help gun as well as a suction gun. A suction type gun does and can produce wonderful paint jobs. You just need to practice with it and try and get the hang of it.

    1973 Scout 2: While I'm in there...

    1973 Scout 2: While I'm in there...

    The transfer cases are interchangeable. The bull gears however are different. A word of caution there are differences in some of the transfer cases in the gears. So you need to take care in getting the bull gear making sure the pitch of the gears are correct for the transfer case you are using

    1973 Scout 2: While I'm in there...

    First off you are going to need a transmission from a scout. The Travelall have a divorced transfer case which means it is separate from the transmission. Second you did not say what year the 392 was.IIRC some of the early 392 non IC were not drilled and tapped for side mounts.
