Need to know what is involved with changing a 258/T18 setup to a 304 setup? The T18 will bolt right up? How about motor mounts? Flexplate?

Just make sure that the balancer and the flexplate match (ie came from the same engine. had trouble once with putting a 360 in one that used to have a 258. Other wise one (driverside?) motor mount stays and you need to move the other- I can't remember which one now. Good luck, Luke

It will work. The 304 and 258 have the same pattern for the bellhousing. Use the flywheel that's on the 304 if it has a flywheel. Flexplates are used with automatics.
