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.
