NO. The 153/151/3L all have an entirely different block design compared to the 350. The bellhousing bolt pattern on the 153 and 3L, and maybe the bore spacing is similar to the small-block.
As I said earlier, the 153 was a four-cylinder version of the 230 six-popper. This engine family was revised more times than I can count; but the 3L block seems to have more in common with the 153 and the six-popper than with the later versions of the 151.
[i]thanks for clarifying that for me, and I need to go find some info on the 230 six-popper, sounds interesting[/i]
