Not quite----  I pulled a 59A V 8 out of a  '42 LC cab.   There was an early   59A type frt. cross member "bubble gum " welded in across the  frame, with a cold chisel   and a few wacks it was

removed. . You'll need this and longer rad hoses--- Larry

While my '47 has had a V-12 in it for at least 20 years, there are still mounts in it from an earlier V-8 swap, no idea if it was a flathead or a Cadillac 

(which was also a popular swap.)   I've left them in case I ever need to save up for a V-12 rebuild I'm likely to have access to a flathead V-8 "loaner" from my brother.

Thanks, what year(s) flathead has the same bolt pattern as the 47 Lincoln transmission & will my input shaft of the transmission fit the flathead. The front mounts are the least of my worry, just looking to make it as painless as I can if I find the right engine. I can always re-drill the crank on the Olds engine I have. Looking at options. It had a 59 Olds, I have a 63 olds.

 32-48 is a direct bolt up , input shafts are the same.  The later 49-53 flathead will work also if you use the truck or Mercury bell housing and clutch disc.
