Big Block Small Block parts interchange?

I think I asked this once but I can't find the thread or remember the answers. What can you use from on to the other, Distributor, fuel pump, stater etc? In other words if you went from a small block to a big block or visa verse what could you reuse?

THIS IS WHAT I USED FOR BOTH..
radiator
starter
motor mounts
ft springs (after AC delete) weighed the same
dist
coil
Alternator, but the brackets were different



p/s, got ripped out

But I can tell you for fact, the fuel pump is different.

hey 1973, I hope I didn't sound like a jerk, had to run to lunch and didn't realize caps lock was on...

Oil pump is interchangable, not the fuel pump.

And the all important Thermostat.
Oil pressure sender.
Oil filter...

I appreciate the replies. We don't have to get too detailed on the small stuff I'm contemplating going with a big block since I've never had one. It's on the bucket list. I wanted to get an idea of what I had to buy since a lot of my small block stuff is new. Iím just trying to make an informed decision. Not sure why I resist at all since the pull of the big block is pretty strong.

Iím weak on engines and just plain ignorant on big blocks.

You sure? You can use the same kind of oil, coolant, air cleaner...



This is for the Nova? I thought you were more concerned about mpg...?

I've never owned a BBC either.. so I can understand.
