  • From all of us at Scout Motors, welcome to the Scout Community! We created this community to provide Scout owners, enthusiasts, and curiosity seekers with a place to engage in discussion, suggestions, stories, and connections. Supportive communities are sometimes hard to find, but we're determined to turn this into one.

    Additionally, Scout Motors wants to hear your feedback and speak directly to the rabid community of owners as unique as America. We'll use the Scout Community to deliver news and information on events and launch updates directly to the group. Although the start of production is anticipated in 2026, many new developments and milestones will occur in the interim. We plan to share them with you on this site and look for your feedback and suggestions.

    How will the Scout Community be run? Think of it this way: this place is your favorite local hangout. We want you to enjoy the atmosphere, talk to people who share similar interests, request and receive advice, and generally have an enjoyable time. The Scout Community should be a highlight of your day. We want you to tell stories, share photos, spread your knowledge, and tell us how Scout can deliver great products and experiences. Along the way, Scout Motors will share our journey to production with you.

    Scout is all about respect. We respect our heritage. We respect the land and outdoors. We respect each other. Every person should feel safe, included, and welcomed in the Scout Community. Being kind and courteous to the other forum members is non-negotiable. Friendly debate is welcomed and often produces great outcomes, but we don't want things to get too rowdy. Please take a moment to consider what you post, especially if you think it may insult others. We'll do our best to encourage friendly discourse and to keep the discussions flowing.

    So, welcome to the Scout Community! We encourage you to check back regularly as we plan to engage our members, share teasers, and participate in discussions. The world needs Scouts. Let's get going.

    We are Scout Motors.

My 64 Scout has the 1904 carb which I have rebuilt and gone thru a couple of times and cannot keep it from flooding from the "vent" hole on the top. I have looked at new replacement ones and all of them have the choke connection turned exactly 150 degrees opposite from mine. I have taken it off so many times that now where I connect the fuel line is stripped and won't tighten. I thought I had found one on ebay but the flange that connects to the motor is wider than mine, something new that I learned. Any help would be appreciated.IMG_0004.JPGIMG_0002.JPG
Check one of the forum sites that specializes in Scout's. The problem you are probably running into is the basic 1904vwas produced for a number of applications and manifolds, several Ford's among them and what is sling for $100 on ebay.

Leaking out the vent to me means an out of adjustment float or valve that is not seating and not shutting off flow of fuel.

If Grose-jet has an application for the inlet valve thst would be ideal. I used those on my MGs

Edit: you would use a Grose-jet HY-33

At this point I would opt for a 4 bbl that fits the manifold
