Yes and NO. it will absolutely bolt in. However, there's an issue with the front crank seal. it can be addressed with some creativity. One is the seal journal surface could be machined down to fit the common block seal, the other option is to modify the block to use a non-common block front seal housing and use a non-common oil pan/pickup tube

have the seal surface machined down to the common block crank size. otherwise you have to change out the oil pan, front cover etc like he said above.
if you're building a new engine you should be having the crank turned anyway.

This is a pretty easy fix.put in the crank-slip on the older seal and holder- transfer punch the holes. put the block in a mill or drill press and drill and tap the block for the older holder then use all your older parts Use blue lock tite or a sealer on the bolts as they are no longer blind holes..I've done it and it works great no leaks.
