What problems am I going to run into?


1955 331 (previously an automatic) going into a 57 D100 6cyl 3 speed manual. Bell housing needs to be changed to the V8 version. Probably a V8 flywheel required. I dont think I will run into any trouble with the front mount but Im worried about clearance on the steering box. Were the 331's commonly drilled for tyhe pilot bearing from factory?
Any other issues anyone can think of?
Did the 331 ever come from factory in the D100.

I think its time I ordered the book.eek
Thanks

Think all the pick ups got was the Dodge Poly. As the size of the truck grows, they'd get Dodge Hemis or Chr truck hemis.
