Scout II & AMC interchangeability???

Saw an ad in my local paper today:

Scout II, 345, AT, Dana 44 & Dana 60, winch & winch bumper, slightly rolled, $950 (approx. $650 US).

Sorry, don't know the model year yet. What trannies and transfercases came in these trucks? Will this tranny bolt up to an AMC 401 V8, or will the Xfercase from the Scout bolt to a TH400?

Reason I ask is that I'm fixin' to build a Jeep CJ or YJ from the ground up, and I already have a complete 1974 Cherokee for parts (401/TH400/Quadra-trac).

1) I'd like to use the AMC 401/TH400 with the Scout Xfercase and axles.


2) I'd like to use the AMC 401 with the Scout AT/Xfercase and axles.

Option three, which I'm certain you'll all support, is to build up the Scout. Where would I find a good tub though? Are fibreglass tubs available?

When I view the truck, how can I distinguish the Xfercase and axles to confirm models? What should I look for?

Thanks for your help and expertise.

Re: Scout II & AMC interchangeability???

Scouts never came stock with a dana 60, so you've either got a modified truck, or a clueless owner. The transmission is probably a 727 Torqueflite (though some of the earlier Scout IIs had a Borg Warner auto) - you won't be able to use it behind an AMC (it's got an IHC bolt pattern). The transfer case is probably a dana 20, though if someone put a dana 60 into this scout then it may have a dana 300. Scout transfer cases came with the 'texas' 5-bolt (or 4 bolt in the case of the dana 300) pattern. I don't believe they'll bolt up to a TH400.

Fiberglass tubs are available but they're currently $3180 USD retail in addition to shipping.
