very well could hook up, tho the hood on a ' 47 ford is pretty tall. I'd run a 292 6, if you could find 1, or maby a 270 or 302 GMC.

I'm guessing you have the 194 already. They're not bad engines. I have one in my Nova and it's going to be working very hard to move your Ford around. I'd go with a 250 or the taller deck 292. The rear mounting bolt pattern is identical to the small bock Chevy and if you decide to swap in a T5 5 speed or a GM automatic they'll bolt up with very little modification.

Why would you go to the trouble of swapping a 100 hp Ford flathead for a 120 hp Chevy? The column shift linkage may hook up but how are you going to hook up that torque tube rear end with that new tranny?

wouldn't have to, there are adaptors to fit SBC's to old Ford transmissions, speedway sells them, the tranny would take the pounding too.

I disagree. I broke every three speed tranny I had in my 40 ford tudor. At first I had a slightly warmed over flathead in it and then a 324 Olds. First gear always went out. Swapped a lot of cluster gears into that 39 box in those days - but at $5.00 to $10.00 a tranny it didn't hurt my back pocket to bad (of coarse I was making a whopping 92 cents an hour then).

It says "74 194" ; in 74' it would have to be a 250 or possibly a truck 292; last 194 was in 67'. The 194-292 Chevrolet I-6 have the "V-8" bellhousing mount and will take the same flywheels,clutches, and starters. The original 194 stickshift flywheel/clutch is tiny and needs to be replaced with something bigger anyway; seems the flywheel was recessed for the clutch if I remember right.
