Default Scout transmission rebuild parts

I've seen various rebuild kits and looking for recommendations. I'm looking to for a kit to rebuild a 1963 Scout 80(152 engine) with a Scout 800 manual transmission that comes off a 196 engine. What kits do you recommend, I'm sure there is one better than the next. Money is no object since I want this to last. Both the engine and transmission work but want to clean it up and repair anything that would go out. Rather replace it now (though it works) than to replace it later. I,m sure someone posted a video on how to rebuild an engine and transmission but I cannot find any, if you know of one please post it.
I'm converting my 3 speed to a 4 speed. Going to take apart the transmission to see how it looks, it's a 50+ year old part so I'm assuming some cleaning, repairs, or replacing parts will be needed.

The engine will be from a 1963 Scout 80 152 engine and the transmission will come from a Scout 800 196 engine

As this forum is owned and operated by IH Parts America and is a tool to drive sales for their business, I'm going to steer you to a link to their webstore where you can look at the items they have available.

You need to identify which model transmission it is you plan to service. I'm not a manual trans expert by any means. Most likely, yours is a Borg Warner T-18, but IH also used the BW T-19 and BW T-98, 4 speed units. Naturally, the service parts are specific to each model, so you want to make positive ID of your trans model before making any purchases. Google searches of those trans models would likely help you better understand and differentiate the characteristics of the three.

Sidebar thought:

I have a 77 SII with a 196 that came with a T18 3 speed and a chain drive transfer case. Switched to a T19 with D20 TC, and never looked back.
Problem was the the band width on the T18 was sooooo wide and not very good for off roading, spent too much time revving the engine just to get some inertia. With the T19, no problem, band width is just right for off roading, and the D20 TC allows for both "high and low".

Relative to driving around town, the T19 is still way better.

The 3 speed standard shift boxes in the Scout II's like you have were either T-13 or T-14. The T-18 has always been a 4 speed. The Scout 80 4x4 models have the Dana 18 dual stick, Hi/Lo transfer case. So Nicholas is already attempting a similar change for similar reasons by dropping his original Scout 80 3 speed trans for a later Scout 800 4 speed.
