Some where in my "stash" I have an "Engine Swap Guide" from the late 70's, or early 80's. There is an illustrated article on swapping a Chevy SB into a 108. Here is what I recall. They used a Turbo 350 tranny which fit easily. Today, it would seem silly not to use a overdrive automatic. This bolted right up to the MB drive shaft. To avoid the oil sump problem they used a pick up and pan from a '62 Nova V-8. That moves the sump and was a standard "hot rod" trick in the day. I believe that pan is still produced in the after market.
I will try to find it, scan it and post it. If nothing in a week, remind me.
