Hi guys. I just purchased my 3rd Pontiac. This one is a 1952 "Pontiac 8". It is much like my 1st car when I was a kid. It has the straight 8 motor hooked up to a dual range Hydramatic. I bought a real nice 287 last year in LA and replaced the motor/trans in my '55 sedan. Took that '55 motor and trans and put it in my 1957 nine passenger wagon, which had no drivetrain. Now I have found the stock 347 and Jetaway and that will replace the motor in the '57 wagon. So I will have a running 287 which I replaced mains and freeze plugs and timing chain. Runs good. Phew.! So does anyone know if it is pretty easy to pull the stock '52 engine/trans, and then stuff in the 287 and hydramatic? The straight 8 runs OK, but it might be a plus to change it out if it's a pretty straightforward swap. I appreciate any advice. Hope I posted this in the right place. Thanks.
