Re: parts interchangeability....360, 258
I'm doing mostly the same thing this weekend. From what I can tell the PS pump is identical, so is the smog (if you are going to use it). The starter will boltup, but the starter on the 6 looks like it is a little smaller. I have heard that it works but will wear out sooner than a bonified 360 starter (no personal experience though). I have also heard that the alternator from the 6 will bolt up to the 360 brackets if you drill out one hole (again no personal experience). I have the accessories for both engines as I bought mine complete, but since the stuff on my 6 was mostly new, I plan to use where I can.
Do you (or anyone else for that matter)happen to know if the serpentine pulleys from my 6 accessories will work with the 360 and allow me to run a serpentine belt?
