newbie here

You can use the same tranny,however, you will need a new torque converter(automatic) or flywheel(manual) since the engines are balanced differently(internally for the 318 externally for the 360). Your transfercase is an NP208 and you have a 9 1/4 rear axle.

OZman, if the 360 is not from a truck you'll need a pan the 318 oil pan will not fit the 360. Also one of the motor mount brackets is different, can't remember if it's the driver or right side.

hey newbie.

the diesel would be a sweet swap, but waaaaayyyyyy to expensive to do. good luck with your swap...i've got the same set up as you...i'll be rebuilding another 318 soon to take the place of the one that's in there now.
