There is a forum for in line engines I've never searched there, We have in the car some day collection 35 olds in line6 won't turn over,.. 48, nash wont turn over, 41 chevy truck head off, and a spare 60's ford 6 if you google you might find something,for in the 20's it was popular to put an olds or chevy ohv on a model T ford, I have seen a stude V 8 head on a model T, a neighbor ran a Ford Boss 302 head in his iron duke Gm 4 , the auto companies didn't change major dimensions during redesigns. The factory machinery for building a ford Y block 239-312 was refurbished to build SBF 221-351... 292 forged truck cranks can have some minor work done to fit a small block... the old lincoln machinery was updated for Fe engines Etc etc. The Torque plate to power hone an engine block fits several different makes I have no idea if a slant 6 has major dimensions the same as the old flatheads.
