I assume you mean a Scout II. If you want more power than a 345, the easiest swap would be to
put in an IH 392. It's a bolt-in.

You are right it is a Scout II but here is very difficult to find an IH engine, so he wants to change it for a chevy, dodge or ford engine, which one could fit with his auto tranny??? Any ideas???

Re: Engine Swap Scout II 73

its not that simple... i think IH trannys are unique... are you sure its the engine and not the tranny?
also, how long since plugs changes (spark) and wires etc. those can contribute heavily...
if you want to put a chevy or ford in yo may have to get a tranny also....
if anything does match, it will be ford becuase IH makes the diesels in the super duty trucks but i don't know if smaller gas engines have same bolt pattern...(not really too likely) but you could always put a brand new diesel in
