Anything Scout worth having?

Besides tha axles, that is. I guess they have a Dana 18 or 20 transfer case, which isn't worth much. Any of them have a decent transmission? I've heard of one that can be picked up for $500, but the axles aren't worth nearly that much.

Re: Anything Scout worth having?

I thought that there was a highly prized Dana300 transfer case in some scouts. The web site linked below says that only the 1980 model had this transfer case.

Remove the shift levers and use 'em to twin-stick a Dana 300.

Use what you need and sell the rest. There are several sites and forums like the following.

Re: Anything Scout worth having?

Well, I figure that the back axle might be worth $100 or so, the front somewhat less. So unless it IS a D300, and a D300 is worth well over $300, it's not worth five. I don't need something that big sitting around while I try to sell $10 parts.

Re: Anything Scout worth having?

I paid $250 for my scout d44s, and I've seen them go higher and lower (I think some had 4.10s). You might want to watch some of the scout parts on e-bay... my axles had fairly straight hub caps on them which I sold for about $50. Who woulda thought? Some of the other odds and ends seem to be worth selling, but then you have to keep the thing around as you part it out.

Re: Anything Scout worth having?

There are some parts that are worth gold like dash pads, ac systems, not sure if power steering/ brakes is worth anything. Scout axles depending on gears and year really vary. The early corse splined d44 and dana 30 arn't worth much but a disc brake d44 front/ 30 spline d44 rear are wroth atleast 150-200 and if they have 4.10's they are worth even more, maybe $500 if you find the right buyer and clean them up/ they are ready to run.

All depends on the market. I know up here most axles arn't worth much because everybody has rusting trucks in their back yard. Back down by my parents there is much more money to be spent of 4x4 parts and parts are much harder to find.

Re: Anything Scout worth having?

Axles & T/C have been discussed already
Transmissions were T-18's & T-19's

Re: Anything Scout worth having?

I could go for Dana 18 for a spare if the price was right and it was the correct 4 inch hole size.
