My Beloved Diesel Scout Died......

A moment of silence please

Today my beloved International Scout with a Nissan Diesel engine passed on. The victim of a cracked piston. She was a good engine. Kind and easy to start on a warm morning with just a whiff of ether. Never asked for much more than a tank of fuel every other week, and some oil. Lots and lots of oil.

In later life she did start to hit the bottle more and more. What… Continue

I thought there was some progress on this issue from past contact I made with WIX filters, Carquest, and NAPA. I see something changed, the Wix website again lists a bunch of incorrect filter applications for Nissan Diesel Powerd IH Scouts.  The air, fuel, and oil filters are incorrect. using the wrong filters WILL cause major engine damage. See the filter list for the correct filter numbers. copied below are documents with past communications with WIX, and a bulletin showing the correct…

Hydro-Boost your brakes

This article was published in Binder Bulletin #19 February 2000


What is Hydro-Boost?

Hydro-Boost is the name of a hydraulic power brake booster patented by Bendix in 1974. The Hydro-Boost unit is used to increase fluid pressure in the brake system, while reducing pedal effort. This unit does the same job as a vacuum booster, and is connected to the brake system the same way. The main difference is the Hydro-Boost… Continue

Parts Sources

adding info for Scout and Diesel parts sources

Fellow Diesel Scout owner Ray Mull from Geronimo, TX has Scout Traveler liftgate cyinders available.


I was wanting to help the IH community too in some small way. I was hoping you would add this to your list of vendors or tell me how. As a merchant, all my life, I know how important a good source of quality parts at a reasonable price can be for anyone, but particularly for the IH owner. As I seek… Continue

Hey Eldon, thanks for the invite to the site. Are you by any chance looking at a Serro Scotty motorhome? I saw the name Eldon on another site and thought it could be you. Anyway, nice site. I'm gonna go explore it a bit. Talk to you later.

Thanks for the invite, Eldon.
Just got home from the Midwest Classic, hoped to see you there.
I think rain may have kept many away; the turnout was a little spotty.

Hi Eldon the site is great.

Glad I got to see you while you were here in STL. Look forwards to our plans for the diesel tech for Nats. Can't wait to see my blocks and heads get gone over for everyone's enjoyment, as well as learn more about these beasts. Don't forget to check out the Terra we will have out there-one of a kind Midas, which now leaves a '79 Diesel, and SSII to complete having one of every type made in '79. :) Look forwards to seeing you and helping you and Rose get stuff set up out there. Keep me posted as to ideas and stuff. Keep the rubber on the road, and look forwards to Dieseling before year's end.

As my brother in Soccoro, NM [another '80 Traveler SD33T parent] said; " the binder community may teach others how to keep and maintain older vehicles." And YOU have really added to this effort. I hope to be able to add a little too in the future, but in the meantime, I'll be learning from all of you. THANKS!!!

Eldon, I finally did the hydro-boost upgrade and it works great.  I posted a couple of pics.  Man what a difference.  Thanks for the information.

Hey Eldon,
How have you been lately? You been driving scouts lately? I hope all is well! The yellow scout is still kicking strong. I need to get an elbow eliminator soon though. My EGTs are pretty high when cruising. Take care!
