Bought this a few weeks ago and finally have time to start digging in to it and I’m looking for anything that people can see is a problem or anything that you can tell me about it.

I was told that it’s a 76 it has a 345 and automatic transmission to my knowledge the chassis and drive train is factory with the engine being rebuilt when the “transformation” started.  All the body panels were rusted out so they decided to build a toy out of it. It became a low priority and then sold it to help fund other projects.

Currently the brakes are non existent and I need a little direction with getting them to work right.

looks like fun till you get stuck and have to get pulled out - i dont know enough to be of any value on motor size identification or chassis but guessing maybe a 345 

going to be cold plowing snow with it

First things first. that ignition switch needs to be rekeyed or changed.😁

I agree with sledgehammer, those u joint angles are crazy. Even the steering looks crazy.  Looks like a few Ford parts thrown in there, is that transfer case even bolted in ?  

Can't wait to see your progress on this one

There is a stamp pad on the upper right corner of the block that will have the engine I D on it.

Right under the exhaust manifold.

The #7 plug wire is supposed to run by itself behind the carburetor to avoid induced spark caused by running #5 and #7 running to close to each other. Timing is done on #8 instead of #1. .

Yeah not completely sure on the angles and parts that’s what I was looking for information on or what to check for

On the pinion angles you want the output shaft of transfer case and the pinion shafts in the differentials to all be parallel. So if the transfer case rear output is pointing down at 2 degrees then the rear diff pinion shoud be uphill 2 degrees and the front down hill 2 degrees. To fix this you would need to cut the spring seats off the axle if they are welded, rotate the axles to the correct angle, and weld the spring seats in place. I wonder if they are currently welded. They should be, but the way they are twisted it looks like someone tried driving it without them being welded.

Some one did a spring over and a shackle reversal on the front end and they used the old lift shackle in the back this has the pinion down some.

Replacing it with a stock length shackle will rotate it some

I'm a Scout guy ---and there so many things wrong with your project that I can,t tell you where to start.  That steering system is really scarey --- I would be afraid to drive it.

Well there was that solution to making a dozer out of a Chinese Komatsu copy which involved raising the radiator cap and running a Komatsu under it.

Might work with a Scout?
