I recently have been trying to understand the inner workings of bitcoin and I completely understand all the steps in this guide: How to redeem a basic Tx?

I was wondering if anyone could help me to change this python code listed here to work for litecoin...is it just changing all the sha256 hashing to 32byte scrypt and all the rest is the same? assuming I am using a Legacy address of course...

Any help with this is greatly appreciated...I am wanting to be able learn all the way down to confirming address' and transactions using hashing with pen and paper...I don't care that it is "pointless" to most people to want to do this..but I want to learn...so....i have been going off of this guide: http://www.righto.com/2014/02/bitcoins-hard-way-using-raw-bitcoin.html

to learn what I can...so far I am able to confirm that the math is correct manually with python code hashing calculators..scrypt and sha256 separate of pybitcointools

Thanks in advance for support and help

No. You should not even change sha256d to scrypt. Everything in litecoin is the same. Scrypt used only for block generation.
