The Vintage Air mock up evaporator came it today and it’s a great fit! I chose the Gen IV Magnum which is their largest and most powerful unit and the one that Silverback uses. It will provide heat, A/C and defrost and is servo controlled with NO cables...I’m pumped since I hate those cable operated flap doors. This will free up the space under the hood that the heater occupied.

Gutted the doors and welded up a couple of cracks...those vent windows are a real pita to remove when they are rusted up. I’m also doing some trial and error fitting on the A/C to make sure the defrost vents will fit and the hoses have enough room. My son and DIL want round gauges and since the originals are suspect I’m more than happy to comply. Priming and painting a few odds and ends while taking a break from door wrestling. The picture of the Orange dash is what they want, not necessarily the color.

that is a great fit on the unit! I will most likely be going this route on the next one that I am going to build. Thank you for the detailed pics.

JJ,
Once I’m thru with the mock up unit you are more than welcome to it. In fact, anyone who wants to install a Vintage Air hvac system can use it for the cost of shipping...we can pass it around instead of buying new ones each time.

Had a little issue with Sally...lost our marina and boat. We’ve gone thru several hurricanes including Ivan (the worst) and Katrina and this one was as bad as Ivan...even on the same date, 2004.

Good news is that no one was killed or injured! It takes about a year to rebuild the marina and this will be our fourth time. Boats can be replaced along with everything else and now I’ll have more time to work on the Scout!

Made some headway today and the body is off the frame and on the lift. I hope we have it on the rotisserie by this weekend so I can cut out more rust. All in all I’m pretty impressed by the frame and body...thought it would be much worse.

Good News! I think the metal is better in the earlier ones anyway. Example I have 2 sets of bed sides here for a pickup, one set from a '70 and the other from a '75. The ' 70 set is probably 30 lbs heavier than the '75 set its that noticeable but they sure look the same. IH had some real quality control issues mid 70s when they were cheapening up the metal quality. Hence the reason you could buy entire sides back in the day. Late in the game they started the "100,000 Mile" promotion but it was too late...

Rotisserie is installed and the tub is balanced and I’m ready to start working on the underside. While I was at it I made an additional rotisserie for the frame so the painter can get to everything with ease. John will be here in a little while to remove the exhaust, brake lines, parking brake and anything else that need it. I’ve got to figure out the CG with the suspension on and off so we can use it to blast and prime everything. I used the cheap HF engine stands to build the rotisserie’s and probably have $100 in each.

John pressure washed the frame and cleaned the dirt from the inside in preparation for sandblasting. We removed the exhaust system (dual exhaust), brake lines, etc. and I removed the ‘flap valve’ on the passenger side exhaust manifold. It’s locked up and I’m wondering if it’s necessary. Lots of other small items cleaned up and inspected.

Whats the timeframe on running and driving? Cause it looks like you guys will be in business soon!

My personal thoughts on the heat riser is not needed. If you lived in a cold climate and were using it as a daily driver maybe. If you want one I actually have an NOS one here that I will never use. But I digress. I didn't replace them on my '76 Scout II or on my '73 Travelall when I had the exhaust redone.

Thanks JJ. I’ll just leave it off when the exhaust is replaced. It currently has dual exhaust and I’m thinking I’ll replace it with a single since it’s a 2 barrel 345, less to buy. The rear spring mounts have 6 258 stamped in them and I don’t know if that’s a part number or the engine it was born with. I need to replace the shackles which were used to provide the lift with something that doesn’t look like it came out of the scrap bin. I plan on a small body lift and a 2” suspension lift to accommodate 33” tires...should I buy a suspension kit with new springs or stay with the longer shackles? It currently has 33s on the rear and 32s on the front and a mix of 15 and 16” wheels. Go figure.
Thanks, Perdido
