Ok, due to the high pressure put upon me by Davis I now have to start this thread. Please be nice to me because I dont really have it all in order. Here is what has transpired over the last few years. "It's a slow build" I bought the 63 scout as a rust free scout or so I thought. Not as rusty as some but still had rust. The pictures below show how it was when I bought it. It was a mess when I got it. It had a ford 289 V-8 in it when I got it. The 289 was in really really bad shape and needed a rebuild. So I yanked it out and put in a Ford 351w. I didnt like that combo so I put in a 6.2 Diesel V-8 with a TH400 auto and a 208 Transfercase. Its a J Code diesel so no emissions junk on it. I then swapped out the stock axles that were spring over and put in Scout II dana 44's and stayed spring over. I have also done a Hydroboost conversion and a Scout II powersteering gear box. Rewired the entire scout front to back. New diamond plate floorboards 1/8" thick. High Back Seats on Chevy Blazer seat pedestals. Full Size Chevy radiator with tranmission and engine oil cooler lines. Chevy Truck Steering column cut down to fit. 4 Wheel Disc Brakes with all new steel brake lines. New rear drive shaft. 36" tires Good Year military Oz wranglers. Pipe Front Bumper. Reverse Shackle. 2.5" wide springs. Re-worker saddle fuel tank with added vent and fuel return line for the fuel injection. New Flush mount Chrome Diesel fuel filler. Scout 800 Dash "Still working on this" to fit with the folding windshield. I'm also going to try my hand at rebuilding the powersteering gear box and I will post pictures of this as I go. I will keep posting pictures through out the next few days until I get caught up on the build.
