    LA 273 318 340 Pans are the same.360 pans are different.I believe the car oil pickups are the same.Tranny should bolt right in.

    need adapting motor mounts (or change K-frame), different radiator, and a 360 car oil pan and pick up tube. Your tranny coming from a truck would probably be a 727, so your drive shaft will be too long. Have it shortened, or get a different one.

      360 car pan (876) has a different offset stock center sump pick up than the 392 pan. The 876 sump is only 2" from the front of the pan and the 392 is 4" back. The 876 pan requires the 72-S4 pick up which was special order. The standard pick up is the 72-S2 for the pans with the sump 4" from the front. The 876 is only 2" from the front.
