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.
