    Hi everyone, I’m new to posting on this forum and looking for some input. I have a 67 Scout with a 266v8 matched up with the factory 4 speed and twin stick transfer case. I absolutely love my motor but was wondering if an overdrive unit would be compatible with my transmission? My Scout has a Dana 44 with 4.10 gears in the rear so she really starts to howl up around 50mph. If overdrive can’t be added it won’t break my heart by any means she is mostly a beach cruiser and driven locally with short trips up the highway. Just wondering if overdrive was at all possible. Thanks for everyone’s input in advance!!

    That's pretty close to my 800. Our gears are 4.27 as opposed to 4.10; and mine does whine at 50 mph. Switching to a Dana 18 transfer case will accommodate a Saturn overdrive that "plugs" into the PTO port in the back of the transfer case. It's a .75:1 and will easily allow you to cruise 60-65 turning just about 2,700-2,800 rpm. Advance Adapters are the go to guys now for the Warn / Saturn overdrives.

    Taller tires will help but takes more effort to get the truck stopped.
