70? 440 w/trans

I just got a 70?? 440 out of a 34 +/- foot long camper, I couldn't get the odometer reading but the last inspection sticker on the windshield was 89. It has a small rise tunnel ram with a 600 4 barrell edelbrock I think and it has headers. It doesn't look to bad and if theres a way to make it start on the ground then i'll go for it. I would think this monster will make some huge power since it had to pull such a huge camper trail. It used a dana 70 rear, it was a monster but its going to get junked since it has a huge 5 bolt pattern with approxiamately a 1 1/2" lugs and dual wheels... :-( It woud be worth some big money if it was an 8 lug. I'll try to have the wife post a pic of the 440 tommorow.

Looks like it could be a 1975 440.

Re: 70? 440 w/trans

If you look on the drivers side cylinder bank there is a series of numbers, the last numbers in the sequence will tell you what the engine is (remeber 361-440 all look the same save for a flat pad by the distributer, and a 1" size difference on each side.) you could be looking at a 400. anyway, on the driver side on the cylinder banks the date, it was manufactured will be cast in there. You may have to dig through some grease but the date will be posted as follows: I.E. 06 12 68 that would represent June 12 th, 1968. If there is no date that means the block is pre-1967.

There is a plate looking at the front of the engine just to the right of the distributor that will give you the year of the block. If it says anything like 440SHP, that's a keeper. 1973 and up have thin-wall castings!

Re: 70? 440 w/trans

I'm not a redneck but the 440 is still in my front yard on 2-35" old boggers with a chain hooked to a tree limb and to the motor to keep it from rolling over. I haven't done anything to it but the thoughts of it going into my 89 jeep sounds good even though I won't ever happen... :-) [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]
