Engine swaps........

I have a 90 with the 4.2 and ax15 tranny. I was told that a 350 chev would bolt up to the tranny with out any adapters. Is that true? And will the stock radiator keep a 350 cool or will I have to replace that too? Thanks in advance, this board is the best place for info.
Thanks for the info Jay. I am trying to get by real cheap. I also have an amc 304 that I could put in. Anyone know how that bolts up? I would love to get by only having to change motor mounts.

I considered this setup when doing my 350 swap, and was told that a new bellhousing adapter was necessary for the conversion to AX-15/Chevy 350. I wound up going a different route choosing an NV4500 behind a 350.

As for the radiator, I have the aluminum 4 core BeCool radiator and electric fan combo and still get a little hot when crawling. I wouldn't think a stock radiator would cut it. You might be able to get by with an electric fan on the front of the radiator, and a mechanical fan on the engine side. Good Luck!!
