• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

1962 Scout 80 Transmission question


New member
Hey all
New to the forum and new to IH.
I just purchased a 1962 IH Scout 80 with the stock 3 speed and wondered if a 4 soeed transmission from a 67 Scout would bolt right up or would I need to mod? TIA

I was told tou can convert it to a 4 speed but you have to get the transmission from a Scout 800 (196 engine). Tjr only modification you will need is to move the mounting brackets 4" back.
I will be converting my Scout 80 to a 4 speed as well.

Hi T-Willie....I can add a little more info to this as I am in the process of putting a transmission in my Scout project. (152, T18, D20)

What I have found so far is that the T90 3 speed has a different mounting pattern than a T18 or T19. So...you might need the correct bell housing with proper clutch disengagement method (hydraulic or mechanical). You may also run into an issue with driveshaft lengths when you start swapping components around. Nothing that can't be overcome....just something to be aware of.
