Re: 77 305 into a 82

yeah, it will fit..
if you change all the mounts, tranny, radiator, hoses, exhaust and wiring.
other than that, it should pretty much bolt right in.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

From what I've heard, the v-6's had different bolt patterned bell housings, so you can't just drop in a v-8, unless you change the transmission too.
