Sure. Replace the flywheel from the manual engine with the flexplate from the automatic engine.

Like tgreese said, you'll just need the 327 flexplate and as Kenall pointed out the 327/TH400 bell adapter. I did the opposite as you - put a 327 from an auto in front of a manual trans. No issues.

As long as the '68 does not have a Buick ... I assumed they were both 327 equipped!

So...currently my '68 2 door has a Buick 350 in it. Originally it had the 327 in it. Not sure how old the 350 is. I just bought last night off of Craigslist in Nebraska a 1967 with the 327 in it. My plan is to place it in the '68. Thanks for all the advice. I am pretty much a novice mechanic, but have always wanted a Wagoneer. Now I own 3! Will keep you updated in build thread that I started awhile ago. Replacing floor pans now. Looking forward to warm spring weather.

If you need the 327 adapter ring flexplate, crank spacer, lower covers
I have them all from a 67 wagon

good luck

Good luck with your swap. I am looking to go the other way in my '87 GW. I am just beginning my research and am looking for relavent posts, thats how I came across yours. Im not sure of the compatibility, given the age difference, but I am going to be looking for all the bits and pieces to go from auto to manual (pedal assemble etc.). I'm in CT, so let me know if your interested in parting with any. todd
