Buick Engine Swap

I recently picked up a 48' Roadmaster sedanette, all stock with a 320' straight 8. Shortly after driving it home I had the chance to buy a couple 322' nailhead motors, so my question is will the nailhead bolt up to the old dynaflo without allot of changes? I've not dealt with Buicks before. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Need to check the bolt patterns and see if they are the same. I belive they are. If so should work. I brought home a '56 Century that has the 322 nail head. Cant wait to tear into it. But gotta get the shop built first!

Thanks for the input and web site. Haven't got real enthused about tearing into this project yet, waiting for spring I guess, but thought it time to start researching and decide if I wanna build the Buick, or look for an A, still regret selling my 30'. Anyway thanks again.

Those 322's can be made to run. In fact I think I may have a Weber 8 pack setup laying around somewhere for one.
