chevytruck1965
    
I have a 1965 C20 with a 292 inline 6. I want to put an early model 283 in it.
Will the 283 bolt up to the granny 4 speed transmission? Also, will the 283 bolt in where the 292 6 cylinder was? Is there any other possible problems, that I may be overlooking?
My son is giving me a rebuilt 283 and he thinks it came out of a 1956 model BelAir.
Thanks for any help that can be given!

if your engine is a 56 there are no mounts on the side of block thus no motor mounts. the 56 mounted on front of block along side of crank pulley . frame mounts are not the same for 6 and8 cyl engines . flywheel on 292 only fits 292 .
