310 engine change diesel to gas, gearing question
Newbie here, been hangout for a year or more. I'm interested in a classic 310 that has an engine change from diesel to a 454 gas engine. Yes I know puzzling choice.
I haven't seen this unit in person. But it was mentioned here that if the transmission was from the diesel set up, that it would not work well with the gas engine.
My questions are, is the a significant difference between the transmissions of the two different engines? Are ther external marking to determine which type is in the unit? Could the difference be compensated for in the rear end gearing, rather changing the transmission? Interested in any relevant info.
