Well, my '57 Plymouth engine bolted to my '59 transmission. It was a direct swap physically. What size engines are well talking about, Chris? For example, I won't take a six cylinder transmission and bolt it to a V-8 engine without doing some checking. It may be the same externally, but it would most likely have different gearing and lighter duty bearings. Conversely, most V-8 trannys were heavier duty, but had wider gear ratios and would make a six popper car even more sluggish while accelerating. But if you're talking about a Poly to Poly or a six to six swap, it should be okay.
