Anything is possible with time and money.

Re: 350 Scout?

depends on what you are trying to accomplish, I'm using a sbc motor, and the stock scout tranny and t-case. Advance adapter sells the motor mounts and engine tranny plate, and you just have to drop it in a weld the motor mounts in place, doing it this way allows you to keep your stock tranny crossmember and keeps your drivelines the same. what are you thinking of doing?

Search binder planet and you can try pirate4x4. Users on binderplanet would be more inclined to help/point you in the right direction.

Putting a SBC in a scout is common. It has been done many times.

If you're doing it because you like the SBC, you have to decide whether to buy the expensive adapters you will need or to install a GM transmission/transfer case setup to go with it. I prefer new drive lines and to keep the power train something that was designed to work together, just drop the whole thing in and fab up the mounts. It's not easier, just easier for me because it's a more simple thing for me to understand.

If you're doing it to save money, forget it. Not going to happen. The details will nickle and dime you to death. Finding a replacement engine will be far cheaper.

If you're doing it for some other reason, lots of folks can help, but you will need to be more specific.
