'47 245 into a '40 110?

As my '37 115c is nearing completion, I thought I'd take on another project I don't have time for.

I'm picking up what has been told to be a good running 245 with 3 speed out of a '47, for $500. Good oil pressure, good compression...or so I'm told. I plan on putting it in my '40 110 touring sedan. The needs-everything '40 has a worn out 245 with overdrive, which will stay. The last time the '40 ran is probably 25 years ago--smoked like mad; probably rings and stuck valves and Heaven knows what else. I'll probably open it up after I have it out just for fun.

Any particular issues with a swap like this?

There should be no problem putting that engine into your car and remember that if you do any work on it to refer to the shop manual for the appropriate year. For example, the rod bolts might have a larger thread and a higher specified torque than the original 1940 engine.

In case it doesn't work out, I have an early production 1940 110 engine available that needs re-assembly after being partially rebuilt.

Thanks guys--

Picked it up (along with wheels, hubcaps, mounts and some other odds and ends) this afternoon. The guys had thoughtfully taken video of the engine running last weekend, looked and sounded good other than a noisy water pump, engine was nice and smooth. Oil pressure at 35-40psi, compression at 90-95 across all cylinders. We.shall.see.
