No problem, you just need to change the passenger side axle, the HD diff is a little bit bigger, and that'* the only real difference.

Think we will take that as a compliment. My suggestion is to just swap the whole trans. If you want too you could buy a trashed trans and rebuild it. But when it comes to changing it. Have a trans going in to replace the trans coming out. Also remember we need to check to see if you do need a new trans.

Ask away.. ask away.

For the record though, the L26/L32/L36/L67 blocks are all identical. They all use the same crank and cams. Piston rods and pistons are different.
