Hi, Any problems replacing the 301 short block in my 57 Plymouth with a rebuilt 56 277 short block with a.040 overbore? I know I need to use the 57 oil pan. Will use the 57 rebuilt heads, a Chris Nielson cam and solid lifters. with a 57 Dual 4 barrel setup. Are there any differences in transmission mounting, timing cover or engine mounting points? Any input will be appreciated, thanks in advance, Dick
