Well it's been a long time since last update.Truck ran great so I just kept driving it til the end on Jan. this year & boom..
...
Throttle stuck in traffic , so I tapped it (throttle pedal)seemed good for just long enough to wonder what happened,then boom.It broke the crown of the piston.So the crank turns but piston top stays up.I push the piston top down & turn crank & it will push it up.Block still looks fine.That's the throttle body regulator screw.So I had a 1972 Scout 2 that I had been working on.I had most of the parts to finish , so I went with it .Here is a picture of it when it was off to exhaust shop.
...
I got pictures of the complete build if there is any interest.
So now I will get back to the SS.I decided to go with a manual transmission.So I got some pedals & installed them.

Man, that really stinks and very sorry to hear.  Postive note the Scout looks to be some fun in the making.
