    Combine, it sounds like you have a lifter tick. How many quarts of oil are you using? When you run on the interstate with a Scout, it's normal for the oil pump to completely drain the oil pan of the...

    I'm definitely all for the unique projects. I'm not too much of a purist when it comes to certain things. Like say, my new turbo and intake set up on my diesel. Not exactly factory specs anymore. ;)

    I'm sure if you're mechanically inclined enough and have the ambition, you could make just about anything work. If you go with a Jeep turbo set up, you might even be able to use the TBI from that...

    Pictures of where you're at right now would be a help. Most times someone can walk you through just putting it back together. The Holley 2 barrels are pretty straight forward.

    Any good radiator shop will be able to tell you with a pressure check if it's worth fixing. That would be the fastest way to repair everything, and the cheapest. Refurbs for radiators cost about 150....

    I believe the Holley's that came on them were 1940's. I'll have to ask my parts store buddy to get the actual kit number that you need though.

    Side thought... since you've got a 75, and those...

    Sounds like a carb problem to me, like you said with the float being too low. Or the inside is all gunked up (very common). Do you have a 2 barrel carb or 4 barrel? The 2 barrel is super easy to...

    Factory wheels would be around 15x6 or 15x8. Tires would be no bigger than a 31.

    The nice rule of thumb to follow would be "if it works, don't mess with it". I'd leave it alone until you have a solid plan and enough money to replace it with whatever you want. If you want to stay...

    Hydro-boost was the answer to not being able to get a good vacuum out of a diesel. It's a hydraulic brake system run off the power steering pump. I picked mine up for 200, used out of a 1986 Chevy...

    Yes, you could do that. You just won't have power brakes unless you change to a different system. I love my hydro-boost system that I upgraded to. I would highly recommend it.

    Yup. Wierd, rare set-up. Not really worth a crap, either. Mine never worked right anyway though. Only other vehicle I know of that does the same thing is the Chevy LUV with the Isuzu diesel in it.

    Alternator wouldn't have anything to do with the brakes themselves, only the power booster. So if you have to stand on the pedal and push with everything you've got just to get anything out of them,...

    Better upgrade (but more costly and requires more modifications) is to use a Hydro-boost system that runs off the power steering pump. I did it, and my power breaks work amazing now. No more of that...

    Cuz it's an International, and they NEVER seal up right? ;) The guy is asking 300 for it. So I guess I'm getting a pretty decent deal then?

    I knew a guy who had 2 such Scouts with the 4wd engaged with a pull knob. He said he never had a single problem with them, but they only had the single 4wd option. No High/Low range.

    I'd say if it can't keep itself running, time to rebuild the carb. It's probably all gummed up inside. Not a bad idea to go through all the tune-up parts and make sure everything is in good...

    Depends on a lot of things. What engine do you have? Don't expect any power or speed from a slant-4 cylinder. They're rated at a whopping 50 horsepower or so. Not exactly show stoppers.
