Over the last year or so I have intermittently worked on installing a Cummins 4BT diesel engine and Ford ZF 5-speed transmission into a 1980 Scout II. A few weeks ago I finally got it running and I have been driving the hell out of it. It is pretty much my dream car. I have been running a thread over at 4btswaps.com which has comprehensively detailed the conversion process. I included quite a lot of pictures from the build, and I think it is a pretty entertaining read. It certainly has a lot of information for someone contemplating a similar swap. For that matter, there are lots of very informative threads over at 4btswaps. My Scout build thread can be found here: http://www.4btswaps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7057 Now that the Cummins is installed and running, I am shifting my focus more onto the Scout itself. There is still plenty to do in order to make it "perfect". That's the reason I am starting this thread. Here is a picture of the Scout on the day I got it (for $1400) : And here is a picture from a few weeks ago, just after I got it running: Externally, there are really not that many changes. New tires, mirrors, and a spring-over-axle conversion. Most of the changes are on the inside, obviously. As I continue to improve the Scout, I will post pictures and explanations here. I have already gotten quite a lot of help from this site, especially during the SOA.... so thanks everyone.
