Boomer; the guys here have given you good advice. Regardless what the reason for the fog is the little Champion engine is not going to do what you are hoping.
If you wish to discuss this more my e address is studepickups at optonline dot net. I can send you pictures of the conversion you are discussing. Skip's advice on a parts truck is good but you need to be sure the parts truck has a V8. The other item necessary is to be sure your truck has the K front frame or adding a V8 requires a lot more work.
Putting an automatic behind a Studebaker engine also really makes a nice truck.
