engine parts

My guess yould be that it probably will interchange with some work. Gm invested a lot of money in the machinery to produce that engine and normally the major dimensions, center lines stay the same for many years and many different engines built on that old machinery. , . the Ford small blocks evolved from the old Y blocks, they were built on the same machinery , the 348-409 had the top of the block angled , NOT 90* to the bore, and the heads did not have the combustion chamber, it was in the wedge.
