I was told that the Dana 300 out of a 1980 Scout II (automatic) will not fit directly onto my non-1980 wide ratio T19. Something to do with the output shaft on the tranny being different on the 1980's. Does anybody know if this is true? I scored a sweet deal on a whole 1980 Scout II with body cancer problems and a solid drive line and I would be disappointed if I couldn't swap the Dana 300 into my '76. On another note the axles in the 1980 are 2.72's! Can anybody tell me why anyone would want that gear ratio? Maybe something to do with smaller tire sizes that were run then? Enquiring minds would like to know! Thanks!
