    hello all! i have some questions that i need answers for:

    i am new to scouts so here we go :)

    1. how do i tell if i have a 304 or a 345?? is there some easy way to figure that out by looking at the engine?

    2. is the alternator on a 77 scout the same as an early GM alternator?

    On the right side of the block, just above the motor mount, you will find a tab there with the engine size stamped into the block. Usually have to clean some grease off to see it.


    2. is the alternator on a 77 scout the same as an early GM alternator?

    Yes, it is a 10si gm alternator. Usualy 37 amps, sometimes 63 amps depending on the options.

      cool, thank you for the fast response, i plan to get a GM one-wire alternator to put on this scout and eliminate the amp guage and wiring.

      thanks again!
