I was wondering if anyone can help me ... I found a 1952 panhead frame for sale locally and wondering if my 1956 pan motor will fit or will I need to make some adjustments

it will fit no problem. you can tell if it is truly a 52 by the lower front motor mount.

What makes you think it's a 52 frame??

Not to scare you but my 49 pan did not fit in my 48 frame when I got it because it had been in an accident. I had it straightened- twice. First time the guy only looked at it from the back and front, did not realize that when old frames are in a head on collision, the geometry shifts forward, so my seat post was in the way of my rear head. I had to have it fully repaired by Dr Johns in Anaheim. I only say this in case you plan to sell yours before you buy the other or something, and find yourself out a bike until you get the frame repaired.
