It has been a long while since I did an update on the Scout II Project. That is because until the last month there hasn’t been any work done on it. Various work and family related projects took over. But now we are back hard on it.
First I decided to call her Heidi after Heidi Montag. By the time I get done with her, she is going to have as many operations performed on her as the her namesake had done in one day. 🙂
Now for the update. As you can see from the picture below, I have the TF 727 cleaned up, rebuilt and ready to go back into the old girl. I have to admit, I didn’t take as many pictures as I should have, but I wanted to get some work done.
Besides, if you want to see some detailed instructions on how to do this, there are three sources that already have it gone over in better detail than I can give you.
To do this job you need to look at these three resources:
1. Carl Munroe’s book on the TF 727.
2. The Scout II Service Manual.
3. The IHONLYNORTH forum’s Torqueflite 727 Guapo.
If you can’t find the answer there, let me know and I will try to help. I went ahead and installed the new vent’s in the transmission and the Transgo TF-2 shift kit.
Now it’s off to the Dana 20 Transfer Case.
