    If you want to do some digging, you will find that this subject has been thrown around here before. It can be done, but you have to concider the weak link. Your transmission wasn't engineered to hold up to all the torque of the 472.

    Re: 86 fleetwood 307 to 472 swap

    ive considered all this and read many of the posts here considering this I was just searching for some one who had actualy done this swap not just people tossing ideas around so I could get specifics from an actual person not just a company who would sell me the required parts, Iveconsidered the swap on my budget and thanks to some one who contactd me have decided not to do the swap and to try and sell my 86 fleetwood for 600 needing a battery and buy a 70's cadillac in my 3400 dollar budget range so thank you for your input but mod should just pull this thread or some one tell me how i can pull it or introduce me to my new 70's lac around oregon
