1970 Scout 800A
Michael Huntís 1970 Scout 800A continues its transformation from
under powered brush buggy status to a modern hot rod diesel 4x4
loaded with luxuries. Powered by a turned up 4BT Cummins making
an estimated 300 HP. Turbo is a Garrett GT3582R dual ball bearing
61.4-68mm piece. A 4 pass 12x24 air to air inner cooler with 3 in
plumbing, custom intake plenum & mild port work take care of the air.
We just sourced a P7100 Bosch fuel pump that Brad Ponci will re work.
Transmission is a GM TH350 with a custom diesel converter. Transfer
case is a rebuilt 32 spline GM205. A custom built Tom Woods drive
shaft with 1350 U Joints connects to a Munk Race Fab built 9 inch Ford rear.
Late model 2 Ĺ inch wide YJ springs were used with custom built spring hangers and
shackles. We are narrowing a GM Dana 44 front end & considering a 4 link/Fox
coil over front suspension. Slotted/cross drilled four wheel power disc brakes,
power tilt steering, vintage air heater/AC. Corbeou leather seats. Modern audio
& a 6 point roll cage are just a few of the many modifications on the way at
the Munk Race Fab Shop. Check back often as we will continue to update photos
of this Cummins 4x4 build.
