So all of this began about a year ago, I got an itch for a small project. What I ended up with an International Scout 80 which came to me in raw primer.

Let me fast forward to a year later, the Scout is still a work in progress and I got Ty and Fulwider helping me realize just how in over my head I am working on this truck. Good news is I dont scare too easily and do not mind breaking a sweat and getting my knuckles bloodied.

Before I continue the thread much thanks and appreciation to those who have helped me get to this point with the build (if I can call it that). So thanks to (Ian, Ty, Fulwider). It is rare you get those who are willing to give of themselves to see something through which is not solely for their own benefit.

BTW I KNOW PICTURES WILL FOLLOW!:4x4::scout:

It was great to meet you and your wife. You have a nice big project on your hands. It was fun getting to help work on it. Looking forward to seeing that thing on the road.

Thanks for the vote of encouragement.

I have the engine power washed and am priming the pieces right now. I received some gaskets which I ordered from Rock Auto. Rustoleum International Rattle can red spray pain is on the way from Amazon along with cork gasket sheets which I shall use to make some gasket which are no longer available from vendors (that I can find).

The bare metal thus far has been sanded and primered. The aluminum pieces such the oil filter adapter, intake, and valley pan will be sanded then hit with spray paint. This is on schedule to be completed this weekend.

Once the spray painting is complete I have to prep all gasket surfaces and install gaskets. At this juncture I will be prepared to re-install the engine. I will need to re-check compression on that engine prior to install, I asked Ty about replacing the head gasket and arrived at the conclusion that this would be a bad idea as the compression already check out good. On order as well is a service manual, in theory if I torque down all of the components coming off correctly when they go back on all should work well upon re-installation and compression should not be lost.

Concurrently this weekend I want to paint the engine bay and make an attempt at bending some brake lines, once these are rough fitted I can remove them in preparation for the engine installation. Once the 4 banger is back home I can install the brake lines and then worry about getting the brake master cylinder hooked up and bled correctly so I have functional brakes.

Pictures to follow once I get some action on some items so I can keep people posted and hopefully get some responses.

Engine and Intake Painted Oops

Should have asked first but the intake has been painted, how big of an issue is this?

Did you spray the paint on the valves? You should always tape up the intake ports. If you did, I'm not sure if it will hurt it or not. I guess it would depend on how much you got on the valves stems and the valve. I would think it would burn off but I've never done that before. I always tape off the holes. But I guess you could try and get some of it off with gas or lacquer thinner.

It looks worse than it actually is, the intake ports are taped off, I also could not find the same bottle cap stype wooden plugs on the other motor I have so I used a putty which I had over some of the bolt holes.

Checked it this morning and dries off pretty slick. The intake manifold itself I will have to wire brush and repaint it aluminum or something.

I am still awaiting the service manual which I ordered last week. I need it to get the gaskets in correctly.

No worries on having painted the intake. I'd just have left it bare aluminum because I think it'd be pretty. The engine looks really nice. If you have some old quilts or something, we can use them to set the engine on when we transport it back to the warehouse. OR we can load the scout backwards on the trailer, take it to the house, install the engine in the driveway and never have to move the engine separate.

Not sure if it would help or not, But if you wanted to use my Shop as a central point for gathering the pieces and installing the engine, I offer that option....

I might have to take you up on that offer.

I am working on gathering lots of parts right now so I can get stuff in with the engine. Of course like everything else the budget is the issue.

I would like to see your projects and or at the very least learn something.

Well, I'm, going to be working on My Wheeling Scout in the Shop tonight. Tomorrow, I'll be working both at the house (Removing the engine from the old Plow Scout) and if I can get that done, head back to the shop to put it in the wheeling scout. Sunday I'm going to be in Crozet, so I won't be working at the shop Sunday.

As Ty may have told you, If I'm not wheeling, most nights/weekends I'm at the shop, If you're in Stafford/Fredericksburg anytime and want to stop by, you're welcome too. I'll PM you my Cell number, just drop me a text to check if I'm in the shop...

That applies to pretty much anyone in ODBA who wants to stop in, by the way.

So Sid and Ty stopped by with Sid's 80 to do an engine swap and other miscellany to Project No Compression.

I gotta say, this is one straight Scout!

And they successfully got the replacement motor in;

Still a lot to be done, but I'll let Sid or Ty fill you all in on that...

Project No Compression has a new temporary home in the RVA while it gets wiring 'modernization' (we're gonna spray paint some of the green wires red white and blue).

Over this weekend we:
- Got the 'parts' motor re-gasketed and installed
- Moved the pedal box to facilitate installing the dash (and installed the dash)
- Installed the steering column
- Installed the front clip, radiator, and other pieces that had come out for the engine swap
- Discovered that the existing brake system appears to be scout II in origin and what pieces that are there look serviceable (just need some more hard line to connect it all)
- FIRED THAT SUCKER UP on ether and discovered that we likely need a new fuel pump (so it goes) :wrenching:

:oops:

Just realized I was so busy either listening to Ty or wrenching on something this weekend that I forgot to get good pics or give the honors those who are inching me along with teh project.

What a great group of individuals [Ty/Fulwider/Zuke] for helping me along with this project.

Now I need to get back to work so I can afford some of these parts.

Everyone else can see the pictures I posted, right? I put them on CVAJeepers, but believe I made them public...

It is a different site, But I linked the pictures in my post above, so you shouldn't have to go to that site, if you don't see the pics in the link above, then I did it wrong and need to fix it...

Since I have an account on the other site, I see the pictures either way,

Basically, If you don't see 3 pictures of Sid's Scout in post #14 here, then I gotta fix it..
