Dose any one know, would the axles and transfer case and transmission from a 1960s International Scout bolt in to my 59 Willey's.

hello, well i think, but I’m not sure, jeje! the Hi scout in the 60's use Dana 27 and 25 axles, i think the original d44 from the willys is better, the scout use two type of transmission, t90 and a t18 whit a transfer case d18 or d20, maybe only the t18 is interesting, but you have to move the cross member backward, make new hole in the floor for the transfer sticks, chance the input shaft of the tranny and have to enlarge the front shaft and shortened the rear shaft, is a good idea. and work very well, but you have to be careful, because this combination broke axles, :)
have a nice day!
