Re: installing a 440 mopar in a cj7
No, the 318 is the more modern LA block. Unless you are talking about the earlier 318 A which were much different than the 340/318/360 LA motors. The 440 (RB or raised B) has its roots in the 383 B block, a much larger, taller chunk of iron. The 440, it has one strong block for making power, but I can't imagine that being the utmost priority in a jeep.

I thought that:
1) The 440 was the same block as the 318, and
2) The 318 has been done several times.
Have I had tee many martoonies? MOPAR engines are not soemthing I pretend to know much about.
