Default 1980 International Scout II

So I bought a 1980 Scout II with the intention of building it up to be a 4-wheeler. So far things haven't been going too well...

A bit rusty...pushed through the sheetmetal in a few places.

It started up wen I got the battery charged...but after a minute or so, there came a rattling noise and while smoke out the left exhaust pipe. Shut it of and pulled the valve covers... Missing a few pushrods!

Pulled the oil pan and discovered this:

So yeah...broken cam, thrown rod, scored crank, 1 pushrod still not found. Now I am trying to get a hold of another engine for a trade for the plow...we'll see how that goes.

And for those of you whou are interested in IH's and 4-wheelers, here are the specs so far:

IH 304 V8 - blown
T-19 (with hopefully a 6.32:1 wide 1st)
Dana 300 transfer case
Dana 44 front and rear axles.

Ultimately I plan on doing a spring-over-axle conversion, something around 35" tires, and full-width axles.
1986 VW Jetta Coupe Diesel - SLOW
1987 Audi 4000 V8 quattro - FAST
