Re: Advise on a 1973 SCOUT II
My personal feeling is that is way too much! It wouldn't be too bad if it had a few more luxuries on it such as taller tires, of a better brand, winch, and a two speed transfer case definetly.
The transfer case is not a dana 20 if it is a one speed, I had a travel all that had that kind of a hokey deal, didn't like it much. All in all it is not a dana 20 if it is a one speed. I don't know when International installed disk on the front, but my freinds 74 had power disk in the front so I would take a closer look at this scout. Is it a four or two barrel carb?
Have you even looked at this scout? If not you might want to look it over once or twice before making your purchase. Just from the sounds of it I would not say it is worth it. I have seen scout II's sell for less than that and they have less wrong with them than this guy tells you already. Where are you located, I am in Oregon and there are usually a few in the local classifieds for under $2,000 and are in great shape.
My last and final question, what is a bowl gear?
