The 3.0 turbo p&c's should work from 76-77. They are extremely low compression due to no IC and CIS. The P&C's from a 3.3 will only work if your splitting the case during build up. The pin size and height are off for your crank.
Yes you can MAKE them work. Options I can think of off my head are:
1. Have offset bushings machined in your current rods (Supertec)
2. Custom Rods
3. 3.2 internals swapped in and get a 3.3
Budget, and desires are determining factor. They are NOT a "bolt on" to your short block as is.
