Question Small Block Chevy in a 240

Hey guys new to the forum here. Ive been doing a little research on a V8 swap in a 240 and Ive noticed the LS motor seems to be the most popular candidate for a swap with stsmachining's motor mounts. I acquired a functional 283 sbc with a 2 spd powerglide trans a number of months ago and I would love to do that swap. So far I have gathered that the sbc is not common for a swap in this kind of car because of its weight (being an iron block and head) but ive heard you can obtain stouter front end parts from the diesel and 6 cyl models. Obviously going to need a new wiring harness and most likely custom motor mounts plus many other things I havent considered yet.

I know of "The book" by jagsthatrun and I plan on purchasing that soon.

All insight is helpful!
