I found a Volvo 740 at the junkyard once with a 318 swapped in it. I'm sure it can be done

Someone here was looking into a 318 swap years back, forget who it was though, or if it ever happened.

I'm not sure. Perhaps not.

In which case, upload them to some hosting site (like IMGUR?), and link them here using IMG tags.

Yup, only way to post is if you are a contributing member. Otherwise you'll need to host the images somewhere and link to them.

I once drove an '82 245 with a 1968 340 in it. The guy had all sorts of stories, like asking the auto parts store for engine stuff and they always want to know "what's it in?". He just shrugged and indicated he'd tell 'em. Some would laugh, some would be stumped because their computer screen didn't compute.

What I most recall was feeling that it ran pretty well, and he said "dig in, find out what she'll do." I thought I had been. Turns out there was a sticky spot in the throttle linkage where the secondaries opened. As soon as I realized there was more travel then it felt like, holy cow did that thing get up and move!

And it looked pure stock. Love it.
