My stepson has an old truck with a 283. He has a chance to get a good 302. His question is will the exhaust mount up directly and what other issues might pop up.

Thanks   appreciate your help

Should be about as easy a swap a can be. Exhaust, bell housing should bolt right up. Some of the very early blocks did not have side mount engine mounts. Ex: 55-57.
