360 from a 74 f-250 fit in my 68 ranchero?

Was given a low milage rebuilt 360 from a fellow 73-79 guy, it runs exceptionally strong. Are the bell housing, motor mounts, accessory mounts etc all the same as any other FE motor? Im hoping for a simple drop-in, or "swap" some folks say.

All FE's are basically the same engine design.

It will drop in the 1968 RANCHERO.

Since 1968/69 Fairlane/Torino/Ranchero were available with the 390 & 428, the engine itself will fit, but...

The truck bell housing and motor mounts will not work. The 'accessory' mounts (whatever this refers to) may work, may not...it depends.
