Re: I need info on 75 scout II
Yes to the Saginaw boxes, but they are mounted differently from the jeeps. The PB setup is also kinda large, not sure if it would work in a jeep, but with torches and a welder, anything is possible.
Yes, the TF 727 is a good tranny, very stout. Unfortunately not so good in a jeep because the only thing it bolts to is the IH motors (unless you're lucky enough to find a Scout with the Jeep 258 and auto in it, but I've never seen one). On top of that, they are large, so you have to run a 2 piece front driveshaft or lift it enough so the driveshaft will clear. The framerails on the jeep are a lot narrower than the Scout, so it creates the clearance issues.
I have a whole Scout, with the 304 and auto (with 3.54 gears), I've been trying to sell for $300, but no takers. Looks like I may part out the body (not in too bad shape, panels are good) and use the drivetrain under a different body, like a Jeep Pickup or Wagon.
