Default Re: 1954 engine swap 8 cyl to 6 cyl

The Y block I have needs a total overhaul. Many rebuild parts are unavailable. I cannot do it myself. My 1954 Ford pickup of old had a 6 cylinder. Parts are more available for the 6 cyl. Rebuilt 6 cyls are not that expensive. I know nothing of 292 or their availability (I am a Model T or A enthusiast). That is my reasoning. Do you have any insight if the 6 cyl fits on the drive train of the V8 or if a 292 fits to the current 3 speed transmission? Any informed insight is most welcome.
