Louis, as we've discussed, I'm in the same predicament, with a bad 1938 block, although I'm lucky enough to have a complete '37 engine sitting in my storage warehouse.

Can anyone on the forum tell us for sure the difference between a 1937 and a 1938 Super 8 block? Is it a "bolt on" swap? Same head etc?

I have heard the water pump mounting is different but have not confirmed that.
