1980 Diesel Scout II for Sale--Nissan 633T

This has the stock Nissan 633 Turbo engine-

Body is average and minimal rust but does need some interior TLC. Rarely driven.  Odometer and speedometer don't work and didn't when I bought it.

Some work done since I bought it:

Radiator

Brake booster

rebuilt alternator

Runs well.  Occasionally the brakes go hard so that will need to be trouble shot. Also, a small…

used engines

    Hello out there !       Not to sure if this is the right place for this or not but here goes. I have two (2) SD 33 engines  that I have no use for and was wondering if anyone out there could use them. One is disassembled for rebuild the other is still together. Both seam to be missing their fuel lines but otherwise are all there.  Was hopeing to get a little for them,but more than that wanted them put to good use rather than going for scrap. Any interest please give a shout. Thanks. Jim…

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

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







HYDRO-BOOST YOUR BRAKES







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.



===============

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

sd33 GP's

I show 2 pictures, one is a black ORT terra.



All the experiments I do are tried out here first.

The latest is working out well. The GP's have been replaced with 10 sec plugs that self regulate some, for the tests.

As of today 7/10/07, the key is turned on [COLD] and a light comes on for 10 sec (as well as the GP's).

When the light goes out it dims indicating that it is cold and then the sys starts blinking the light and GP's. Now you crank until starting. The blinking of… Continue
