  • straight six to a v-8

    I have been asking around and right now my 73 scout II has a 258 straight six that has hardly any power. i have just bought a 345 engine and i have been told that i need to weld on the engine perches to the frame. Is there some place that i can buy the perches or do i need to find some off of a scout and cut them off? any information would be helpful thanks

    They do have to be changed but I don't know of anyone who sells pre-fabed motor mounts for the conversion. Might try Back Country Binders, he can build anything.
    Another thing to consider is the transmission must be changed as well if it's an automatic and the bellhousing if it's a manual. The pattern is differant on the AMC motor to the IH 345.

        His phone number is there if you wish to call.
        Maybe a local welding shop could help as well?
