Re: Emission Equipment on Scout 800
Yes, it's the original engine. Boought the scout from the original owner..had every receipt for everything ever done to it. The owners manual and engine compartment refer to this engine as the V266E..I assume the E refers to emission controlled. Anyway, the manual states that the airpump filter should be replaced every 12K miles etc, etc. Anyway, I took all the crap off of the engine and finally found a reference to the chirping noise from the exhaust in the binderbulletin tech talk section. Someone recommended replacing the injection tubes with IH plugs - I forget the part number. Anyway, I bought these plugs from Vintage International and installed them and they stopped the chirping. The scout is running like a top with its new pertronx ignition. Now all I have to do is replace the worn out throwout bearing.
