It's great to see this website!
I recently was passed down a 1950 3600 Chevy. It's got a blown (seized) 235 in it, but has a (seemingly) good 292 that came with the package. I don't know if the 292 will easily bolt up to the sm420 4 speed. I have heard that I will need to add engine mounts to the frame. I am wondering if I should use the 292 or buy a running 235 that would drop in easily.
I would greatly appreciate any advice or thoughts on the matter. I don't plan to restore this, I just need it to run decent!
Thanks Stovebolt community!

I realized I was rambling in the wrong place after I submitted the post.
I will get the hang of it sooner or later....
