Default Detroit 353 into 77 Travelall.

I have a 77 Travelall that had the 345 v8 and auto. I yanked the 345 to use in my old loadstar. I recently brought an IH s7b paylogger with a 353 detroit connected to a 4 speed t98 box that IH used an some trucks over here. Would it be possible to drop the engine and box complete from a spare parts paylogger into the Scout?? I can get another wreck for the clutch pedal, etc, and I kinda like the sound of the detroit.....

I drove a Jeep cj with a detroit in it, so I'd imagine you can get it in the ta.

If you don't mind the noise and the fact you will live in the slow lane every where you go it should work.

Remember, they were only rated at about 85-100 hp. Which isn't a lot of hp in a full size.

A 4-53 would be better power wise but if you are going to swap to an oil burner you would be better off getting something like a 5.9l cummins or a 6.9/7.3l. Both have a lot more hp and torque and won't be as noisy.
