I'll be putting a 4BT from a Chevy P30 stepvan into a 1980 International Scout II. I just picked up the Scout yesterday, took it in today to get titled, just in time for a snowstorm. I'm including a picture that I just took a half-hour ago... haven't even gotten it off the trailer yet.
I've run a few other threads about some questions I have, mostly transmission questions. Much of that is not worked out yet.... but will be in time.
I paid $1400 for the Scout (actually I still owe her $900, but she's nice, and she's my neighbor!). The Nissan Turbo-Diesel engine apparently is in need of a rebuild, and in any case the injector pump is missing. The body is pretty straight, there's no rust, the interior is OK (driver's seat really needs help), the glass is all good, the top has never been off, and the tires are crap. At first I thought $1400 was an awesome deal... but I'm having some second-guesses about that. Oh well, I only drove 12 miles to get it.
I'll be doing a spring-over-axle lift, putting 3.07 gears in the axles, putting in the 4BT (obviously), and trying to use the Warner wide-ratio T19 that's already in the Scout. I am even considering fabricating whatever bellhousing and adapters are required. If I can successfully mate the T19, then the transfer case should be easy. I'm actually hoping to keep the transmission in pretty much the same place, that way I won't have to relocate the shifters. We'll see about that, though.
I'll try to post a lot of pictures. They will only come as often as I actually work on it though!
