    Default Books and parts....

    Ok I was just wondering what the difference was between all of the books. I have a 1978 Scout II and was wondering why the manual was so much and what the difference was between them and the other years. Also difference between all of the years, are they interchangable? I thank you for your time guys. I'm sure I'll have more ideas and what not.

    The primary differences from 78 and later are the ignition systems. The 1980 has a different t-case, and the 1980 diesel has a turbo. The brakes, front and rear ends, frames, bodies (less trim, etc) are pretty much the same. The traveller and terra models appeared in 1976 and later, but aside from body and frame length, there isn't much difference.

    Try and get the right manual, though. Whatever goes wrong will be one of the minor differences...

    For your year of Scout you need the the Two Volume set. The only difference is in the later years they started offering different options such as four barrel over two barrel. You also have the different engines that were used in the later years verses the early years. Yes, some parts are interchangable from all years, but would suggest get the right book for the right year.

    I bought the two volume set for my 78...it's expensive but worth it...lots of little items that are helpful...at the same time..it's no where as easy to read as haynes manuals. of course I am doing a complete rebuild except for the engine..so I have to have them.

    Ok I see... That's kind of what I thought about the different years. And also the books. I thank you guys for your time and info. So anyone who might know of a service manual for a 1978 International Scout II or know of anyone who has one and it "might" be for sale. please please please let me know. I will need it because I too am getting ready for a frame off resto, once I get my barn the way I want it. Once again thank you.

    EBay has them, and Super Scout Specialists have them. They're getting kind of spendy for the late year manuals though. 100 bucks or more. You'll be hard pressed to find someone that'll get rid of theirs, too. I got lucky on mine and got a full set for 70 bucks from someone who got rid of their Scout a few years ago.
