to put the edelbrock intake on you need to modify the 2 center holes to bolt straight up and down instead of at an angle,a drill should do it as for the one piece rear crank take the flexplate from the older engine and the starter, you will have no problem hooking up,the headders will be the same also...other parts from the older engine will be the distributor and engine accesory brackets,you will find the oil dipstick on the opposite side on the newer engine.The tranny will be lock up converter type probably a 700R4 type and you will need some fancy wireing to make it work and the driveshaft will need shortening,th350s weren't used after 84/5 but were lockups after 82 your older th350 will work with the newer engine
