A: If you stick to the same size engine and fuel type then anything will do.
You will almost certainly have to change pipework and fabricate new mounts though, making it a long job.
If you can live with it being off the road for a week there are plenty of companies that will recore and/or repair the old rad, which would be preferable
Q: How do I prevent my International Scout’s doors from “falling down?”?
The doors on my 1973 International Scout are “falling down”– as to say, they are literally beginning to lean downward and I can hardly close my the doors anymore without slamming metal against metal, the sides wearing down as a result… Any suggestions?
A: Sounds like the door hinges are wore out. Repair if possible if not replace them…………….md

Just got my first Scout II 4×4 and LOVIN IT! I am replacing all general fluids, greases and filters but I can’t find nor do I know how to replace fuel filter? Also am looking for some nice looking roll bars at an economic price? Any ideas?
A: If fitted with an in-line filter, it is usually inside the left side frame rail near the transmission. If not, then the only one is in the inlet of the carb.

ive got a 1976 INTERNATIONAL scout with a 345. rumor has it with the correct bell housing a 283 or 327 will fit wright in. idk?

Q: What is the difference between International Scout makes in the years 77, 78, 79?
I have seen some Scouts listed as Scout II, then others as travelers, others as travelalls…. What is the difference?
A: These were all made by the same company. The scout was built to compete with Jeep. The traval all was an early version of a SUV. It was big, come with a V8, and was available in four wheel drive. They also built a smaller scout, they called the scout two. I may have it backwards. There are very few around in my area, as they were very prone to rust. Not many left.
Q: where to start on restoring an 1968 international scout?
does anyone have any ideas on where to start on trying to restore scout? I know this kid who’s dad died when he was 4 and the scout that was his dad’s is the only thing he has left of his dad and he has some learning disabilities and has no idea even where to start on trying to restore this. He has no current family and is in the foster care system and they have no idea and are not willing to offer any help. I appreciate any ideas that are not mean and that would be helpful thank you!
A: It depends on it’s current condition. I generally start with the drive train. I get the vehicle in good running condition, then I do body work. I like them to run so I can move them around and am able to take them different places for different things. Fix dents, cut out rust, repair and paint. After paint I work on the inside. A lot of people start with the body, but then you take the chance of scratching or denting the car while working on it.
Q: What would a 1979 International Scout 2wheel drive be worth if it were in excellent shape with 87,000 miles?
Everything is original. It is a 2wd and is in excellent condition.
A: $2500 at the most.
It would either be sought by a collector, or 4X4nut.
Frankly anything “SUV” like isn`t worth much these days…Y`know because of the $4 a gallon gas.
Q: Where can I get an alternator bracket upper and lower for my 1973 International Scout II?
If you know of a place or a web site I can go to get these it would be much appreciated.
A: I don’t have a name of anyone,But i think the best place to find the brackets that you need would be a auto salvage yard (junk yard). You might know of one that has a internet service that you could like open.
Q: I am about to purchase a ‘63 International Scout 80. What gas mileage should I expect??
It’s the “Scout 80.” It has a 4-cyl, 3 spd manual, with high and low range. I know you can turn the 4wd off, but it will probably still drag a bit, right? I’ll be doing alot of interstate driving. Would it be wise to disconnect the 4wd while making long drives? What MPG city/hwy will I get? No guessers, please.
A: I owned several Scouts including a Scout 80. The mileage I got with a completely stock car (no lift, no big tires) was about 18-20 on the highway at 55 mph. Hopefully you have locking front hubs on the vehicle. Just unlock them and the front wheels freewheel. If you don’t have locking hubs, you can buy a set and have the fuel savings pay for them. If you have a lift and big tires, or try and drive faster than 55, you can expect less mileage.
Q: Why does it take so long for my International Scout II to warm up enough to drive after I start it up?
The Scout’s engine is a stock 1973 345 V8 that recently underwent a full tune-up. It has been slow to warm up and be “driveable” for as long as I can remember. but only recently has it taken so much longer to idle (5-10 minutes) before I can actually drive it and it doesnt stall.
A: Check the choke, perhaps its not closing (if its automatic) and also the thermostat may be stuck open or needing to be replaced.
Q: Where can I find an International Scout?
I’m tired of tearing up my fairly nice jeep and need something not necessarily nice but good enought to drive through anything.
A: try your local craig’s list.
you may also find other trail ready rigs like suzukis.

Q: 1980 international scout transfer case oil fill plug?
we have a 1980 international scout 4wd, with a dana 20 transfer case, the silly question of the day, is where on earth is the fill plug for the case? I found two possible’s, one is toward the rear of the vehicle, a few inches above the bottom (on the side of the case), the other one is on the top, next to the shift lever. which one is the fill plug, and how much does the case hold when completely drained.
A: Damn a International Scout…Now theres a truck they really made a mistake in making….they last for ever….
Q: 1980 International Scout II worth $26k in excellent condition. Why are they worth so much compared to others?
A: there are hardly any around! Most are in the bone pile. I bought one that had the whole bottom rusted away. no floorboards even. Paid 4 grand for it, had a ford 302 in it. restored it and sold it for 18 grand. You just cant find these and they are very popular in the 4 x4 groups!
