    Source for injectors and nozzles?

    Super Scout has parts probably not pieces for individual injectors, but I did order some sealing “washers” for the injectors. Rebuilding injectors is tricky but adjusting them is. This is best left to the professional. Nissan used an exact copy of rhe Bosch injector pump and injectors (they. did...

    A/C Compressor mounts for 392 Loadstar?

    This may or may not help. The 345 had the a/c compressor mounted above the alternator which had a bracket to hold both the alternator and a/c compressor. I am not sure how the air compressor for the brakes is mounted. Perhaps of you could post a picture of engine showing how the compressor is...

    30/33 gallon tanks.

    Areotank in California built one for me in about a week. I used the same tank design that was used in the Scout. I needed to move the filler neck and removes some of the emission lines because this tank resides between the frame rails on my travelall. High quality and heavy duty. They made all...

    bigger turbo on 1980

    The way to get more and quicker speed is to use a Mercedes exhaust housing that will spool up faster. You could fit a turbo from a semi but it would never spool up. there is a balance between too big and too small there is also a section down below for diesel and if you use the search function...

    TB700R conversion question

    I will believe that the 700R4 is a fairly reliable tranny. It is based on the TH 350 which was a decent “small block” tranny. If you have it built right and don’t try smoke the tires it should last. They are picky on the kick down adjustment. If you can try and find the type withe the K cast...

    1980 Scout II Side Trim

    I believe the only trim available on the side was a stick on type. It was not stainless or aluminum.

    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...
