Re: Free Scout--Worth the trouble?
Does it have flanged or tapered rear axle shafts? The flanged came into play in '69, with 3.31, 3.73, and 4.27 ratios. Prior to '69 they were the tapered 2-piece design with 3.73, 4.27. 4.88 ratios. The front is a D27 up to '66, '67 and up were D30 with D27 ends, both drum front brakes. This is all provided there wasn't a swap involved at some point. Can you find a year? Some of the fronts had Power Lok LSD, but '69 and up didn't, they were open. The rear were all Power Lok LSD's, no open carriers. The Scout II body style came into play in '71. The axles are all Dana, there should be a tag attached to the cover bolt on the carriers. Can you see anything that says Scout 80 (hinged windshield), 800, 800A, or 800B?
