will a 454 fit and buckle up to a transmission in place of a 350
You will probably need to change the frame motor mounts as they are usually taller & further forward on a big block to allow clearances from the firewall & cross member. Other than that, it should go right in.
you will also need to add heavier front end parts (springs, etc.) to hold up to the extra weight or your wheels will end up bowing out to the sides.
if it is a 6lug wheel NO if it is an 8 lug Yes if its a 700R4 trans, maybe Yes I know they made a 1500SS with a 454 It is heavily modified to take the extra power and weight from a standard 1500
No, Big block chevy's and small block chevy's transmissions have different bolt patterns for the bell housing.
all chevy V8 s have same bell housing bolt pattern
Thats for pointimg that out. After i posted that it didnt feel right. There was a problem tho. Something with the flywheel size cause it was balanced with it. But this was an older motor so it may be different with a newer one.
mt monarch has it straight, in fact, the 350 and 400 turbo trans will bolt all the the way from a 250 in line 6 to the 454. as far as the fly wheel, its balanced to the engine, thats why unless it damaged you dont replace them when you replace a tranny. Just run the flywheel that goes with the engine you change to.
Can I pull out of 350 and bolt in a 454 in a 1975 Chevy truck
