Hello I'm new here jetboaters . net. I'm swapping out my 455 olds for a small block Chevy 383. Was looking for mounting hardware and advise on how to do this for reasonable price.

Mounting hardware would be the same stuff a I/O small block Merc would use, I believe. Major hurdle is gonna be mating the engine to the drive. The bell housing bolt patterns are completely different and the crank flange bolt pattern is different. As you didn't list the year or the make of the drive you are mating to, thats about all the immediate info I can give you.
