diesel scout

I'm looking at a '80 turbo diesel scout and have a few questions being a newbie to scouts but some 4x experience. From what I've read on this board they are slow but when I test drove this one it was so bad that at wot on the street cars had to drive around me. The freeway was downright dangerous this thing was so slow. I've driven an Isuzu stakebed turbo diesel that was faster with about the same size motor. I didn't hear the turbo whine on the Scout and I'm wondering if it's not working properly. Also is there any adjustment to the clutch pedal? This one engaged right off the floor and I'm wondering if its out of adjustment or out of life. Final quest. Is the head light support available? This one has been hit and I'm wondering how hard it is to replace/fix it.
Thanks in advance,
DaddyO

Re: diesel scout

They are not going to set any land speed records. But if properly maintained can go forever and do it efficiently (20+mpg).

There's more specific diesel Scout info here....
