Yes. Your '68 engine should slip right into the '74. You will need to use the clutch pressure plate from the '74 to mate up with the late model trans. I believe that everything else is "Bolt-in". Good Luck!

The '68 block doesn't have the insert over the #3 hole and I don't thing the '74 trans has the indent for the 'half moon' bolt head so you might need two sets of hands to get the number 3 bolt tight.

I could be totally wrong on this. Eric would know...

Matt is right. You will need to use the bolt and nut from the '68. One person under the car with a wrench, and one person under the hood. You have to monkey the bolt around the clutch release arm, so figure out which bolt you're going to use before you put the motor back in...
It will save some scraped knuckles if you swap bolts with the motor out. study
