They look decent and fit good. No wheel clearance issues. Plan to paint black and keep the rivets polished.

Wonder if I can pop the rivets out and then pop them back in or if I'd ruin the wheels.

Well I'm wasting another $600 and picking up a rotted out parts scout on Sunday but the frame is 95% solid which is where I need to start. Couldnt get the hood open when I looked at it last so I still don't know what engine is in it. Hopefully a 345 that I can pull the heads off but more than likely a dead 304. Hopefully we don't have any issues dragging it onto my trailer with his excavator.

Got the frame scout home. She's effing ugly lol. Might get $75-100 in scrap steel out of it. There isn't much steel left lol.

All I want is the frame. Bonus was it has a 345 with only 68,000 original km. It was parked 10 years after being new and has rotted away since 88'.

The alternator was gone, the powersteering pump was gone but the rest is there. I hope the heads are good as they are likely better than the ones on my 7 cylinder 345.

I'm going to try and rotate the engine after I pull the plugs. The 2 barrel is there to and the air cleaner was still on top so hopefully internally its all good.

Axles were 3.07s? What the heck is that. Must have been a gramma rig?


But needless to say it was loaded on my trailer with an excavator.... My 7 cylinder 79 dragged the rust bucket off the trailer but now I can't shift out of 4 low.... Not sure what I did, prob snapped the pinion. Got to remove the front shaft to see if I can get it shifted.

Spare scout LST from glove box.

You need jumbo tires on the engine stand with the IH SV motors. I had a 196 on an engine stand. Felt like I was about to tip it over every time I moved it! Save that starter! Send it out for a rebuild while you're busy with other things..

Yes, that's a whole scout minus the engine.

Couple of other things you should keep,as people are always hunting,and are not made any more.First is door hinges,second window regulators and the vent windows,and door latches if still there.

That stuff was all rotten. The wing windows were decent but I couldn't get the glass rolled down in the flat windows. The regulators are all seized up. Didn't want to waste more time on those.

Well my daughter and I got to work on stripping all the parts and axles off the donor frame today. I am cutting 2 access holes in the front frame crossmember so I can get a power washer in the frame and blast it all out.

This new frame has a few thin spots but nothing that weakens the integrity.

All the grease covered areas of the frame looked brand spanking new underneath.

Well got $96 for the scrap scouts body panels and some random scrap. 1500 lbs of shred scrap.

Started tearing the old engine down and the #8 cylinder I think is full of water, the intake runner was full of water. I'm asuming this engine was parked due to a head gasket failure.

The 5 stand rocker assemblies are in far better shape than the ones currently on my Scout so I'll likely keep all that stuff.

The whole motors coolant galleries are so rusty and crappy that I'm not sure it can be saved.

Pulled all the rods and lifters today. A few of the lifters were dished pretty good rods are all okay.


#4 cylinder looked like it was once full of water. I'm thinking someone may have tried to ford a rather large creek with this and hydrolocked the engine 30 years ago.


It's nice pulling apart this engine just for the experience. I haven't been inside an engine since I had all my 2.2 Dodge turbo stuff 10+ years ago.

Well got both the drivers bank heads off today. #3 has a broke piston and the motor is seized solid lol.

She is a a boat anchor now. Another $50 bucks of scrap. 7 of the 8 exhaust valves were stuck solid all of the intake valves were crap.

None of the rods were bent. The 5 stand rockers will be going in my 79 engine with 2 of the best lifters and 2 rods.

Saving the springs and bolts, oil pump etc.

Well I finally ordered an overhead cam spring compressor to see if I can free up the valves on the #1 cylinder. Once it cools down and fall finally starts I will get to it.

Still need to get started on the frame too. Need to cut some thin spots out and weld in new metal.
