Patched the outer pipe with JB weld so now the heat gets to where it needs to.

Going to look at a running 360 Sunday. Guy wants $200 for it w/o AC or PS pump.
I'd buy it no questions asked

That's my thinking. He's also got a TH400 trans he's selling if anyone in the area is interested. I'm not.

Yesterday when I rolled into beach town for the weekend as I was coming off the beach we just disappeared in a cloud of smoke. Raced home round the corner parked up, and shut her down.
The cowl drain pipe had come off, leaned the POs oil pressure line against the extractors and it was bleeding straight onto hot exhaust dammit. So today I gotta find a plug so I can still drive it this weekend. Funny how it happened 50 metres from the house not 50kms down the highway

Oil changed, horn wired to a button on the shift knob since I can't get the aftermarket steering wheel to work with the horn, spliced in a plug to the center console so it can be removed for passengers in the rear seat, adjusted the rear brakes, and used it to go cut some firewood for Mom in the "back 40"... not bad for a few hours!

It literally just opened like a week ago. It's really shiny and neat in there, but everything was too expensive

I'm looking for a Scout II Dana 300. Drop me a line if you have any leads. Thanks

Maybe I should look into something like that some day. I'm 6'5". When I put my steel doors on for the winter I had to take the inside door grabber handle off and have to keep the window roller at a certain position so my knee doesn't get stuck trying to use the clutch.
