    What is the difference between a International scout 80 and a scout 800? Also the dif. b/w a Scout and a Scout II?
    Thanks

    I don't recall off hand what those differences are, but I remember searching on google and finding all sorts of good stuff. There was one particular page that was located on about.com that was pretty useful. I did this search a few weeks ago.

    I do recall that sometime in the 70's the scout became the scout II, and the 800 was the designation they gave to some earlier ones.

    Scout's, Scout 80's and 800's are all the "early Scout" body type. The Scout II's are the late body type. All have a 100" WB. II's have D44/D30 combos until they got disk brakes in '74. Common lore says that the disked Scouts have 44 fronts, but I know of two '73 axles that are OE disc'd 30's. Scout front D44's (& D30's?) use 8 stud stub spindles instead of the 6 studs everyone else except EB's (5 stud) use.

    I have had 2 Scout IIs. They were both beasts. Go ahead and flame, but IMO, they are built much stouter than a Blazer. I think when they changed to Scout II, the axles used were the same as the pickups got, instead of a specific narrower axle. Also, I believe thats when IH started putting the 345 in , and using Torqueflite auto trannies.

    I miss my Scouts. A Traveller (Hatchback/long wheelbase) w/a 304 CID. And my favorite, a Scout II w/345 CID. That thing was all torque. Don't know what axles or t-cases they had. They used Chrysler auto trannies, but again don't know which one. Damn I miss that truck.:(

    I am strongly concidering picking up one of my neighbors 66 scout ... i know it has a completely solid frame and a perfectly strait body. If there was any intrest around here im sure i could pass it on to you. He would take 600 for the scout.( minus engine and trans)

    IIRC, the difference between the 80 and 800's were trim level. Anything after i believe 72 were scout II's (besides the travelals). A friend of mine has 2.5 scouts, he is all about them.
    I couldn't care less for the motors, but one with a small block chevy would be perfect!!
