Another look at a melted shock boot, this time I am focusing on the Gas Tank and the Gas line. The gas line when thru the boxed frame and out the front to the mechanical pump. I liked how it was protected from almost everything the majority of the length. I kept this idea when I ran the new line.

Dropping all pans and covers I did a mechanical inspection of the engine rods and crank, fly wheel, the tranny (visible area) and the differentials. The Engine looked clean and no stress at all, this was very promising. The tranny was nice and red (no indication of any issues), fly wheel looked perfect. The only disappointment was the fact that the carriers were both open, which is fine; this will allow me to install whatever I want to in the future. As for now they will stay open and I will get the truck drivable before I start any upgrades like that.

Time to reinstall the pans/covers and put new fluids in; first I cleaned off all the dirt, rust, and old paint from the tabs, bolts, and pans/covers. The color scheme I decided on is not a traditional IH color setup, but more of the Chrysler roots behind most of the components. I decided Flat Black would be good for all hardware and diff covers and went with Hemi Orange for the pans. The Hemi Orange was the closest to the Competition Orange that the Scout body is available in rattle can. Flat black is my best friend for frames and hardware.

Painting - drive train

Before painting I took a hammer to the covers to make sure that the dents that were put in it by the previous owners were mostly pushed back out where they should be. With the paint dry and a little time on my hands I purchased all the fluids I needed to put the blood back into the components of the Scout. While I was getting the fluids, I picked up an oil filter and a new starter. The other one that was on there was a hit/miss with the bendix to get it started. Included is a before shot of the drive train, IMHO looks so much better painted. Now I know looks do not make it work, but I figured that since I had to check the mechanics before I really started to try to breathe life back into the Scout that the covers/pans would not come back off until needed; so I put good gaskets on them all and made sure that they looked good.

With the cleaning and painting bug I caught I decided it was time to drop the tank. I cleaned and painted the tank straps, and cleaned the outside and inside of the tank.

Painting - gas tank

Painted tank strap, tank, and installed. For the straps I painted Flat Black and I used rattle can bed liner to cover the gas tank.

Remember the box on top of the Scout when I mentioned that it became a storage location. Well the box had rear quarter panels in them which I decided would be a good project to do while I was waiting on my buddy to come over a week or so later to help with getting the engine started. I went to check out the goods and I was disappointed in what I found. The rear was cut at a strange curve, possible opposite curve than what was given in specs. The front door jam area was off quite a bit, and the radius for the wheel well was off too. I contacted the company I purchased these from and they refunded half my $ and did not ask for the parts back. They did this because I agreed to it, I agreed to that arrangement because I decided that I might be able to use the panels yet, even if I cut out what I want to use and keep the rest for scrap.

My bud and I got the engine to run and I started driving it around town. Well trying to drive it around town. The engine still had issues with stalling or just shutting down. The tranny needed to be rebuilt in a bad way. The only thing that seemed to work well was the transfer-case. We decided to keep working on getting the engine running well. In the meantime I called around about rebuilding the tranny. I received a few Noes and a couple Yeses. The problem with the yeses was to cost to rebuild the tranny with a shift kit. We put a stop on working on the Scout for a while until I got back from working abroad for my job. Once back the engine just kept demoralizing us. With the cost of the rebuild for tranny and the engine not playin nice with us we decided that I should look into a drive train swap.
I found a buyer for the drive train I had (his engine was a shrapnel cage) and I included the tranny and transfer for a good price (btw I still have another Torqueflight 727 tranny for sale)
Out with the old; while out I took advantage to cleanup and repaint the engine compartment.

I searched local for a truck that had what I wanted in it for a drive train and had to make a couple compromises but in the end I believe I will be all right. I found a nice 1986 Chev Sub with a 350 th400 and 203 in it for a price I could not let by. I called my bud and took him with me and some cash to look at the burban. The seller had some receipts for the engine parts and other stuff. We decided that this truck would make a great donor. After getting the truck home my buddy and I were joking around about trading his long bed for the burban because he could use it for camping easier with his dogs. After a few of these jokes and a few beers we shook on the deal. I got a 1978 GMC K10 4x4 with a 350, TH400, and NP203. The engine has a performance cam, new hydraulic lifters, roller rockers, double roller timing chain. The tranny has a shift kit in it and has been rebuilt recently, the case for the tranny is a hard to find reinforced case. The x-fer case (NP203) has the part time kit installed.

Got the trucks ready for the transplant; I live in a neighborhood that has an hoa so we had to make sure that we did the swap all at once or at least find points to stop in that we could clean up and make it look like nothing too major was going on. Since the Scout had no drive train in it; we took one day to disconnect all electrical and other connections in the K10. This also included getting the front clip removed to work and then setting the clip back on the frame overnight.

In the morning I had a couple guys come over and we had the engine removed and installed between the Scout II rails in 8 hours.
