Yes cause I have done it, but it's not an easy task, the clutch system was I think the hardest too get in. Had to do a little custom shielding work and if I remember the trans mounts were different. and of course you need a flywheel to match.

Thank you, I’m hoping that because I have the entire 69 I can make it fit the 74.
