263 Dynaflow 263 pre-WWII Special

Recommended Posts

I know  there have been several posts on the subject... putting a 263 from a Dynaflow-equipped car into a late 1930s (esp 1937) Special

... but I can't find these threads.

 

So... does anyone have the patience to educate me on what I would be getting into to attempt this project??

 

Thanks,

You need to use the front plate from the original engine for front engine mount.  Not use the 263 side mounts

Not 100% sure but I think you may need to use the 1937 bell housing for the mounts/transmission.

Dynaflow cranks are different. Needs a modification for clutch/standard transmission

Are other threads on using 263ci engines in earlier cars. You are not  the first
