    First post ! This is our new corona virus project. I have three boys. 18, 14, and 12 years old. Since they don’t have school I wanted them to know how a car runs. So I looked around and found this 1974 scout ii with a 345 engine. Got for a very low price. Didn’t run. We have rerun the wires and got the timing down.. got it to start. Then after many searches on binder planet forums we figured out how to run. The external oil pressure gauge to see if we had oil pressure. Yup 20# at idle and 40# under throttle. Now we have to fix the brakes to get it to stop and we can drive it on it’s maiden voyage. Thank you to all the people on binder planet that take the time to answer questions. It really helps all of us newbies.

    Welcome to the addiction. Looks like you're coming down with a bad case of Binder Virus. There's currently no cure, other than to just keep plugging away at it. Great father/sons learning project. Hopefully they think it's cool.

    All the things you can teach a young man working on these. They are just lifelong lessons fewer and fewer people know.
    Be sure to check the Binder builds section. There is some amazing work going on in those threads.
    Welcome to the sickness.

    Awesome I loved wrenching with my pops. I have never paid for someone to change my oil because my Dad showed me how. However my brother has never not paid someone to change his oil. Same Dad different results lol. Enjoy your Father-sons project.

Major accomplishment for the boys. Needs some
    More carb adjustments as it died at the intersections but man we made it to town and back! I’m pretty stoked right now!

    Looks GREAT. What a priceless education, this is the kind of thing that they, and you, will remember for the rest of their lives. Important life lessons, for sure. Enjoy.
