Has anyone done this/any information on it? I'm very interested in cramming a 4bt in my '73 Scout II.

I think the only difference between my 1980 is running gear and grill. I've had the 4BT in my Scout for 6 years. There's a link in my signature for all the pics, and you don't need to shoe horn it in, theres plenty of room.

what kind of fuel mileage are you getting with the 4bt.with what gearing and tires.

Hey guys,
I got a 1980 Scout 2 that I want to eventually put a 4bt and a zf manual. My question is:
How big of deal is it to change a Scout 2 auto over to the ZF manual? Would I be better off starting with a manual for any reason? I have two Scouts available. One auto and one t19 manual.

Also, I keep reading that a lot of people prefer to change the drop of the dana 44 to the other side. Is this only to give more room for exhaust or is there other advantages that I am not getting?
