1963 Scout Drivetrain and Miscellaneous Parts for Sale


Recommended Posts

Hi there...My 14 year old son is building a '63 Scout for when he gets his license.  He has decided to go with a newer powerplant and drive train so he is trying to sell the original stuff.

He has for sale:

Engine (disassembled because it was seized), transmission,  transfer case, diffs, radiator and miscellaneous parts.

We are located in Nova Scotia, Canada. Will ship on your dime.

Nictaux hicks...Welcome to the forum.  Good luck with your parts sale.  For those curious, this should be an I-H 152 slant four and a B.W. T90 transmission with a Spicer Model 18 twin-stick transfer case—similar to period Jeep models.  Check out the Advance Adapters website (https://www.advanceadapters.com) and catalog for actual fitment and possible parts interchange.  Look up Scout applications and adapters for details on this transmission and transfer case.

Thanks for the reply Moses. He has no idea what to ask for this stuff. He is just a young fella so I imagine he will take any reasonable offer.

He has worked from the time he was 9 years old and saved every penny to put toward this build. He works summer's and weekends at a farm to pay for this. He is learning things the hard way that's for sure.

I'm impressed with your son's progress and growth at mechanical work.  Encourage him to take math seriously, it's a "tool" and foundation for engineering.  You may have a budding mechanical engineer in the family. 

At age 13, I began taking mechanics seriously.  Encourage your son to use factory shop manuals (FSMs) with his work to coordinate steps with the manufacturer's expectations.  Reading FSMs is ground school for a career at automotive technology or a sidebar for engineering.

These parts are getting somewhat rare.  If the units are in good condition, I would ask $250 for the transfer case and $175 (USD) for the transmission.  Would be smart to remove the top cover with cane shifter from the T90 and photograph the gears for their condition.  Removing the cover will not affect the gear sets. 

Is the output shaft sliding out of the case?  That can dislodge the roller pilot bearings at the front end of the main/output shaft.  Do not attempt to force the shaft back into position.  Anyone buying the unit will be rebuilding it, replacing the bearings and installing new small parts from a kit.  The value is in the housing and gears—the "core".

The stamped cover plate at the rear of the transfer case can be removed without disturbing anything.  Photograph the gears from the cover opening and the input side as well.  Rotate gears to inspect them and share...Feel free to add the photos to a reply here.  

At stake is whether this transmission and transfer case are a direct replacement for Jeep models.  If so, the market would be much larger.  Do some homework at Advance Adapters and possibly Novak's online catalogs.  See whether these Scout units interchange with Jeep.

Thanks for the encouragement! He did pull the shaft out and let the bearings fall. Lol. Part of the learning process. He does it all 100% by himself. I'm pretty lucky in that he has a natural talent for mechanical. He has been welding with might and stick since he was 8. Tig only a couple years but he's pretty good.

He is lucky because I have been an automotive tech for the better part of 26 years. Mostly gm dealer but a little ford and dodge sprinkled in for good measure. I grew up in my Dads body shop so he will benefit from that as well.

We he get home from work after school I will have him try to get some better pics.

His budget will likely go to zero shortly as hockey is set to start and he pays most of that himself. Has to have the fancy hockey stick. Lol. He is a worker though and will switch from the farm to reffing hockey so he should be back in the black by christmas.

Thanks again for the kind words.

You should be a proud dad!  A budding engineer in the making?  Great that he is doing all welding processes, especially TIG/GTAW.  Encourage your son to read about metallurgy and heat treating as they relate to welding.  He'll discover that metal compatibility is "chemistry" and why we use specific filler rods and cooling processes.

Sports provide a good balance in life and personal development.  I instructed Automotive Technology and Welding at Rite of Passage and served as the Director of Vocational Training.  The ROP program placed heavy emphasis on  team sports and athletics.  Staff all agreed that this helped round out the students' lives.

In a book I'm currently writing, I discuss at length the value of my truck fleet and dealership line and heavy duty mechanic's background.  I was also an equipment operator in the Operating Engineers Union before enrolling at the University of Oregon at the age of 28—a late bloomer.  Our youngest son graduated in Civil Structural Engineering from the University of Nevada and found his niche in management at Amazon.  As you know, it's all connected!

Your son's photos will help move the parts.  Determine what these units will fit.  That will expand the buyer base.
