Would anybody know if a TRA10d from a 1050 would bolt in a 1254 without modification?  I have never dealt with a TRA12d.  

 

Thanks

Tim

Yep Both will bolt right on, besides the HP difference and different ignition systems they are basically the same design on the outside and you wont have to cut your hood or make different mounting brackets if thats what you were wondering

A dead ignition was the need for the swap.

You'll have to re-wire it to the 1050's schematic then and install the 1719143 switch

If memory serves me the TRA10D has a 1" diameter crank and the TRA12D has a 1-1/8" diameter crank where the pulley goes - not a problem if you can use the pulley from the 1050 - just mentioning it in case you are planning on using the TRA12D pulley on the TRA10D - it can be done with a spacer sleeve and a different crankshaft key - 1/4" x 5/16"

A dead ignition was the need for the swap.  

Your doing the right thing by getting rid of that SS ignition.  I fought S14D (same Ignition system) for over a month and finally scrapped the engine.

Thanks for the input, matching pulleys and wiring shouldn't be a problem, I just didn't want to mess with it if the block was dimensionaly different.
