Re: [Chrysler300] Re: 440 Engines and Cross Rams

It fits I believe with use of 413 crank ,the  converter area is a different projection from B block for cast iron trans. . Go from 12 mpg  to 10 ; smile 
Later heads have larger exhaust valves but they can be put in a 60 head ok . Fastest F I ever had was that way . Still 413. Makes a difference . Have to watch oil sump location on 440 to match 413 . Or use 413 parts . ? Go overbore to 426? 

Swap to later block with its crank usually driven by change to cable 62 style 727 . As you describe . But Don V has convinced me that old cast iron  is ok today , problem was guys rebuilding them . 

I had worked out a way to put cable on later column shift 727, as I wanted a GV ( gear vendors) overdrive and low axle (4:30) at the time . You do lose Park. GV Cannot be put on pre 65 727 ( long story , very long, as in a year trying, bottom line forget it ) , due to rear pump on pre 65 727 . 
Difference between 413 F and 440 not going to let you beat a fast Toyota . 572”B block  and GV , max wedge intake, now you are talking !!

My 300F coupe had a 440 block installed in the late 80's by the restorer Joel Cox.  The only downside was when being 'judged' by the Inc Club, I lost a point once for having too few bolts holding the valve covers down, and once for having the "Highland Park Chirp" starter, rather than the direct drive 1960 model.  Can't answer if the 60 Torqueflight will mate to the 440 but Joel had an Imperial Torquer installed from probably a 62 car so the parking brake could be from the 1960.

Eat, Drink, and be Larry........
