I’m getting ready to remove the engine from my 1950 Dodge Coronet. The previous owner removed the transmission and the driveshaft. He also stripped the engine of all the parts except the head. This exposed the engine to the elements and let water and dirt get into the engine. I plan to take this engine apart and see if I can rebuild it. The plan is to take the engine, transmission, and driveshaft out of my 1951 DeSoto Deluxe carryall and put it into the 1950 Dodge Coronet. After ready posts on this forum I realize the Desoto engine is 2 inches longer and I will have to move the front motor mount and the radiator forward 2 inches. I would appreciate any feedback on how to accomplish this since I’ve never done it. Thanks in advance for your comments. What is the best place to hook the chains on the cherry picker to? Are there any other problems I will encounter doing this swap? Any tricks to removing the driveshaft? Can I leave the transmission hooked up to the DeSoto engine when I remove it? Should I remove the grill or any other parts from the dodge to make it easier to install the DeSoto engine? I know the DeSoto engine is 2 inches longer, but will some of the other parts on the 2 motors interchange?
