    Any Mercury, Ford or Ford truck flathead engine from 39 to 53 will bolt in. On the 49 to 53 motors you will need to change the water pumps to bolt it in. 49 to 53 Fords and 51 to 53 Mercs used a different bellhousing that can be changed.Pre 39 engines will also fit but are not as tough as the later ones.
