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.
