Yesterday I purchased a IH Scout 80 and its quite the beast.
I have a dumb question to ask to start things out and get people lauging at me ;-)
This is my first 4 Wheel Drive vehicle, I've only had two wheel drive manual transmissions before now, and suddenly I have a extra two sticks!
Can someone please explain or diagram what the other sticks do, and what configuration I should use for my normal day to day driving?
On the drive home I seemed to top out at about 40mph on flat road but going up hills I was able to go faster, maybe 45, I'm guessing I'm in the wrong gearing or something similar.
The Prior Owner bought it a couple months back, drove it home and let it sit outside in the weather where it collected a bunch of junk inside the cabin with the roof off for about Seven months without using it, He didnt know what the other sticks did.
The engine sounds great, the brakes work poorly, the E-Brake doesnt pull out at all, The passenger side door wont open from the outside and there's no brake lights but thats all I've found wrong with it sofar, Quite a find for my first 4x4.
