    As far as swapping one for another?
    Will a 264 bolt up to where a 220 was?
    The Metro engine (220) is shot and a member here has a 264 that he is willing to sell.
    Will the swap bolt in?

    It should I believe. Pretty sure they share the same block. Have had a '61 BD240, '63 BG241 and a '65 BG265 and don't recall anything noticable

    The 264 will bolt up. The only issue may be that if your 220 had an exhaust manifold with a 2-bolt flange for the exhaust pipe, the 264 will have a larger diameter exhaust pipe. If your 220 has a 3-bolt flange, then even that should be a swap.
