    I used to have a VW powered Ural,it was a black rat too.A ton of grunt,never used 1st gear.....but top speed was down on the Ural as the VW is a low revver.

    I had an AS110 when I was 18 (1972) to haul our dirt bikes.They were 18 cwt and made every other pick up look puny,16 gauge steel and every bolt stamped IH.We had them from Canada,Australia and the US,mine was Canadian.4 mpg....and we have big gallons...had.

    Good morning friar Mike
    The utmost respect for Your question then if I need any parts
    regarding my beloved scout II 1972 4 cyl (196), 4 speed manual
    I should answer this way
    the car is old...
    but its ok...i mean it works ok too ...just ok though
    Parts that I would like
    ...too many to list
    that I really need ...a few..
    ..sure making an ss conversion ...a dream:norton
    If U actually have a list of what You got there ..:wink:
    ...sure a dana 44 front disc must be costing a fortune to ship:cry
    but a little thing like the rubber boots for the gear levers may be not
    post a pic of the shed inside if not too much hassle
    My prayers be with U friar...and all the scouts and bikes too:evil
    Cheers
