My brother and I swapped engines for a friend...
The 55 chevy 265 that came with the two door was worn out. The owner found a
reasonable 57 283 power pack engine. We picked up the engine one afternoon.
The next morning we started by removing the old engine. Actually, pulled it with a
wench on a huge oak limb.
Of course, the 283 was a perfect fit. Went in with no issues. Went and picked up
the owner at LUNCH.
He was a happy camper.
