howdy cousins

Hello to all, I,m a jeep guy who is looking for some information. I want to swap in an auto trans in my cj-7 behind a very healthy AMC 401, used mostly for mud drags. My question is what auto trans/transfer case combos came in IH vehicles? I know that the TF-727/D300 was available for a time,but what others are available?Also if anyone would have a combo or the appropriate adapters for sale? Hopefully not terrible expensive. Thanks in advance for any help. Phil

As far as I know the only auto trans in the Scout II was the 727. Don't know about the availability of adapters, sorry.

Re: howdy cousins

Most Scouts came with a 727. Early Scouts came with a borg warner automatic. I have heard os some type of single speed dana transfer case but most came with a dana 20 and very early scouts came with a dana 18. As for your automatic swap in your jeep......any auto matic from any jeep v-8 or straight six will bolt up to your 401...I have been told they all have the same bolt patterns. You might be able to find a gas powered straight six scout with an auto also....believe it or not...that is a jeep motor.....go figure

Re: howdy cousins

Every scout I have ever seen thats an auto has come with a 727 except for one. I bought a scout from the original owner and it had a 904 in it. He swears up and down that he never switched the tranny but boy was I ticked that 904 is junk. I don't know if it was factory but anythings possible.

Re: howdy cousins

Did that 904 happen to be behind a 258?

Re: howdy cousins

The Scout II and D series IH pickups used a TF727. This tranny is NOT compatible with AMC powerplants though, as it uses a different bellhousing and tailshaft.

Re: howdy cousins

The 727/D20 was used, too. The 727/300 was a 1980 only.

And the BorgWarner Auto to D20.

There's a kit to put a TH700R4 behind an IH V8.. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

If you're looking for a tranny to go behind your 401 from an IH..

You need to find a 1974 Scout II with the 258, 727, and Dana 20.

You may find a 258/auto in a' 73. In '72 you're likely to find the BW slushbox. 1974 was the last year IH used the 258 in the Scout, so you won't find one later.

You could also look in 72-75 IH pickup/Travelalls with the 258 (258 may have been an option those years), or behind a 401 in a 74-75 IH 1/2T pickup or Travelall.

The fullsize 727s will be 2wd, though. You'll need to swap the tailhousing out to marry a t'case (IH used a divorced NP205).

If you're looking to marry a case, you're better off looking at 727s from a Waggy or Dodge truck to grab the SAE tail housing and tailshaft, which'll let you run a Jeep Dana 300.

Really, your ideal swap candidate is a Wagoneer with the 727..

I run a very health IH 727 behind an equally healthy IH 304 in my drag/obstacle racer Scout II.

In almost 4 years of racing, I've only broken one 727 'case, and a half dozen aluminum Dana 20 tailhousings..

The IH727 used what amounted to the "RV" (Rec Veh) or "RB" (BBC Mopar) heavy-duty guts.

Re: howdy cousins

Well here is all I know...Our group owns 3 Scout II's 2 automatic trannies and a manny. The automatics were chrysler 727 and the manny was a Borg-Warner.

I don't know the exact model of the Borg-Warner but I could find out also I don't know the names of the transfer cases but I could find them out too if you would like. Let me know...
