Tranny for old 3.8 & 4.3 V6's ??????????????

O.K.

Sadly enough my project may be on hold for awhile.

I came across a COMPLETE V6 & Tranny,in my search for a SBC V8.

It's a old 4.3 with a straight Carb,& the motor mounts still on it.
(# 471594)

It turns freely & looks to be in good shape,the guy says it was running when they took it out of a 72' El Camino.

My wife really likes the Idea of dropping the combo down into our 83' Cutless Supreme,(thought it was a 84" until i checked the title) .

It has a "NONRUNNING" 3.8 and tranny in it as we speak.

Heres the question...

Will the 4.3,& tranny go right into the Cutless without a FUSS?

Are the two Tranny's the same.So I can rebuild the old one that comes out with the 3.8,and set it back as a spare for the 4.3?
(DEAR GOD HELP ME,there both automatics!)

I checked the Forums,& unless it's hidden,in code etc... didn't see anything answering these particular questions.

I really do need to get a Back-Up car going quickly,as we have only one car running,(under protest) at the present.
