As I recall the chevy intake is narrower then the oldsmobile so you might be
able to make an adapter to use it on the oldsmobile block.
Pretty sure the 403 is a "small block," which on the Oldsmobile the
essential difference between a small and big block is just the deck height
of the block.
I do happen to have two caprices in the driveway, one with a small block
chevy the other with a small block oldsmobile. Could get some measurements
to see if it's possible to adapt.
The one good thing is the intake ports and coolant cross over have a
similiar arrangement as the chevy. The distributor also is not mounted to
the intake, it's on the back of the block.
