This is an excellent site for most anything Scout related. I don't know what happened but there was a split of some kind and all the information that used to be on the Binder Bulletin is now here.
I started out many years ago as a subscribing member of Binder Bulletin and while there were many times the site was not on line (for various reasons I am not privy to) on the whole it worked pretty well. One day Binder Bulletin disappeared and I thought that it was gone permanently. After a bit of a search I came across Binder Planet and tried my user name and password and viola it worked! I have been mainly using Binder Planet but I noticed recently that Binder Bulletin is infested with ads.
My recommendation is to go to both and make up your own mind as to which you prefer. I am sticking with Binder Planet as it has more information on it. I will leave the reasons as to why the two exist in the realm of need to know and I don't need to know!

Top notch transmission and drivetrain work.
After much research and constantly getting screwed over by the incompetent garages near me I decided to take the 2 and a half hour drive and get my Dana 300 transfer case replaced with a new used Dana 300(supplied by me) by Snohomish Transmission. I talked at length with Rick, the owner, before I went in and was very satisfied with his obvious knowledge of Scouts and IH in general AND he has a Scout II and an earlier Scout of his own which gave me even more confidence in his abilities.
When I got to the shop I was impressed with the large facilities and professional manner in which I was treated. As expected, the work was more than I anticipated because of problems they caught such as leaking axle seals which I knew about but had been ignoring. Rick was a bit puzzled by the fact I had no way to put inner seals on the rear axle but there is a first time for everything and the new outer seals they put in seem to be keeping the oil in. Also, I asked them to install new output shaft seals on the transfer case and this was a bit of a problem time wise because the seals took a while to get from the parts supplier but if I had told Rick about this the day before I came in he would have them ready.
Overall, I was very pleased with my experience and was very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism Rick and his staff showed at all times. I would highly recommend Snohomish Transmission for any drivetrain work you need. PS: I drove down from Canada to get the work done on advice from a friend. Glad I took his advice.
