Whats up guys? I am wondering if anyone knows if there are any adapter kits made to bolt a big block of any make to a Scout TF 727 auto? My 345 still runs great but I want more power.

Any info will be appreciated

Look into a Chrysler swap. Its pretty popular and it can be done with factory parts. I've seen a couple of Scout's with 440's in them.

Chestons a bit blue to consider a Chrysler swap, thats what I told him too. The only place I thought of would be JW trans but they only make a BB Ford to turbo 400 adaptor not a 727 to BB Ford. Just bite the bullet and find a 440 buddy :rotfl::rotfl:

What you should do is use the 460 to a gm trans to the IH t-case then you could make Ford Chevy and Chrysler guys mad all at the same time :thumb:

Am I the only guy that thinks it should be against the law to pull a 345 and put something else? :thumb:

I love those engines... only 2nd to the Cummins. Pretty much build as tough though.

Yeah they are heavy, and parts are more expensive... dunno. I still like them. They seem to run forever.

I just get tired of seeing a SBC in everything... even though I did put one in an FJ40.

There was a guy in Anchorage that had 2 Scouts with the Nissan diesel in them for sale. I should have bought them

I can garauntee that my Scout will never have a sbc in it...BBC maybe but Im with Eric and finding a 440. I talked to a guy on RME that said it would be easiest to find a Chrysler 727 and swap internals since my tranny is brand new.

You know....I like my 345 alot but it weighs as much as a big block and Im just not pushing the HP that I want. Good torque though.

I think I will find a 440 and build it over the next year or so. That would be sweet to piss Ford Chevy and Chrysler guys off at the same time though.
I guess we will just have to see.

You know, you might be able to talk Chuck out of his Cornbinder motor with injection......that might gain you some extra ponies.


injection eh??? tell me more!!! I have talked to a couple Scout guys that have put TBI on their 345s and said it really wakes them up.
hummmmm.........:rolleyes:

Now your starting to sound like my wife:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

That 460 in the garage would be a fun motor for the Scout. Especially if I left the race cam in it and set up the tunnel ram with a couple of off road carbs. But its for the Mustang and you know it.

Do they make adapters for a c6 to a chevy t-case? thats something I would consider over the 440

If you run a 203 or 205 all you need is factory stuff. The Ford 205 will use a 31 spline input from the C 6 so you will need the input gear from a Ford Case but the Chevy case will bolt onto the Ford adaptor. I have never actually done this but I have seen the two adaptors next to each other and they look pretty much the same. Just get a Ford 203 and the factory stuff and then bolt a 205 to it. You know you want a doubler :thumb:
