engine swaps

I have an 80' model scout with a 196/t-19/dana300. I am wondering what it would take to put an amc360 in front of the t-19/dana300 such as scott's 75 on the binder bunch picture page. Did all his running gear come from a jeep? Is there a difference between a jeep t-19 and a scout t-19? Are the dana300's in a jeep and in a scout different? I know a v-8 intl motor is a bolt in swap, but I have a wagoneer that has a good 360 in it, and very little else! any help would be appreciated. rkeyes.

Re: engine swaps

Yes you can put an amc 360 in a scout very easily, the only special part required is a bell housing and motor mounts from a scout with a 258 6 cylinder engine. as far as jeeps go the swap from a 6 to an 8 is a bolt in, the same should hold true for a scout if you have the parts from a scout 258. dana 300 are not directly interchangable between jeep and scout, most of the internals are the same, but the case and input gear arangement are different. the scout 300 shares the bolt pattern of the dana 20, while the jeep shares the bolt pattern of the borgwarner transfer cases (this is why scout dana 300 are so popular with the jeep crowd). jeep never used the t19 transmission only t98 and t18, but if you use the bell housing mentioned above all of the scout transmissions with front mounting studs are functionally interchangable, if you have any other questions let me know.
