    I was thinking about doing something like this some day.. but my conclusion was, the easiest way to do it would be get a donor ranch truck.. and do an entire drive train swap. (you'd get beefier axles and less hassle) assuming you got the right truck lol.

    yeah i had a guy tell me that too. i just cant see scraping the whole drive train, there has to be something compatable and reasonably priced.

    SBC350s work well, need an adapter tho. That's the most common non ih engine swap done i believe.

    There have been several 4BT cummins swapped into scouts. Good swap, from what I understand. Don't know what transmissions were used. I'm a big fan of using a transmission that came with the engine, just working on the tail end of the transmission to make a t-case work. I just don't see the advantage of adapting an engine to a transmission unless I am positive that what I am doing will bolt right up.

    Default Are you Crazy?

    The Cummins 4BT came with a turbo 400 behind some of them. Problem is you need overdrive cause this engine doesn't rev very fast. Bigger problem is you will go deaf and rattle your fillings out with this engine. Better take a ride in someone's 4BT nightmare before you decide on this swap. I rode in a Chevy with a 4BT and couldn't believe the noise and vibration. Go strap yourself to an industrial paint shaker and if you like it, this swap could be for you.

    Hmm... I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that if ANY engine rattles and shakes the daylights out of you like you're describing, then something wasn't done right in the swap. I've never known the 4bt to be a bad engine.
