He said that's the year of the transmission, not the year of his truck. It does matter.

ok, sweet, thanks guys, but just of curiosity, if the other motor was a 351 would it still be a direct swap?

It would only make a difference if it was out of a 460 or a diesel.

What Evan P says is correct. The 351 is a small block just like the 302, 300 inline 6. The 460 is a big block so is the diesel so they won't have everything the same.
