    I’m in the process of buying a 215 V8 manual 4 speed 1962 Skylark, with intentions of swapping the automatic out of my 63 Cutlass and replacing it with the 4 speed. but before I pull the trigger I need to know will the crankshaft on my 63 215 V8 need to be drilled out for a pilot bushing? or is it a straight swap out?

    You will only need to insert a pilot bushing to fit the transmission you are using. The crankshaft has the hole for the bushing. It has nothing to do with the block, only the crankshaft.
