Even then, you may have to unbolt the radiator overflow container and move it out of your way to see the timing marks. Automatic transmissions will overheat and burn up if the engine is not running.

I was thinking that maybe someone has done some piston work like reverse dome or something like that. As far as changing the ports money is a very important object.
I would not give up on it if it has the 6 bolt crank or the short shaft 727 with bolt on yoke.

This voltage pulse is sent to the ignition control unit from the magnetic pick-up unit pins 4 and 5. It continued as standard on the 1961 300-G, and remained on the option sheets for Chrysler 300s through 1964.
A special equipment package with 165 inch wheelbase could go up to 16 feet long. Known as the Super Stock Plymouth and Ramcharger Dodge, the Max Wedge featured high-flow cylinder heads developed through state-of-the-art at the time airflow testing. I have two sets of 30 over cast flat-top pistons but am open to other suggestions. Three-speed automatics were common stnadard on motor homes. There are a few different cranks 6 bolt and 8 bolt etc Hemi , six pack , standard engine and later cast cranks. I'd bet close to 50% of the motors we guys are building now are motor home lots showing up as the 30 to 40 year old motor homes with never stressed 440's and 413's are being parted out.
It did take quite a bit of fuel. Note: Seeing the timing marks and reference plate on a 440-3 can be difficult. The distributor does not contain breaker points or a condenser, these parts being replaced by a distributor reluctor and a pick-up unit.

Understating engine power was common in the era. I assume the intake side of the heads is similar to a regular big block and the exhaust side is different to allow better cooling? You would need to get a new wire harness.
The company also switched to a ductile iron crankshaft at some point from 1972 to 1974 , replacing the forged steel crank, to cut costs. I'd like to buy this and throw the 413 into it.

I think that the intake is more important than you might imagine. The 440 V-8 features a deep-skirt engine block, rugged cast ductile iron crankshaft and aluminum-on-steel main and connecting-rod bearings for exceptional durability and smooth operation. Most body builders supplied heavy duty wipers, two exterior mirrors and one interior mirror, safety glass on all windows, rear wheel mud-flaps, backup lights, clearance and highway lights, 12 volt and 110 volt lighting systems, right and left sun visors, heater and defroster, refrigerator, gas furnace, gas range, water heater, and disposal tank, with optional air conditioning, stereo players and televisions, and other comforts. And, I've never seen a motor home transmission that had a slip yoke and all had the short tail shaft. Long term, the best fix is a pair of 440 source aluminum heads with Cometic gaskets.
An increasing mechanical advancement of the timing takes place with increasing engine speed. Remove the gas cap to relieve the pressure in the fuel tank. Any aftermarket parts for the 440 will fit the 413 including the cam, performance heads, intake manifold, headers, carb, etc. Hemi Andersen wrote that changing the crankshaft also meant the need for an eccentric weight in the harmonic balancer, and the addition of a weight to the torque converter. From 1972 to 1974 the engine detuned to run on lead-free gas was rated at 280 hp 209 kW net, and dropped in hp each year until 1978, when it was rated at 255 hp 190 kW in police specification and limited to Chrysler New Yorkers, Chrysler Newports, Dodge Monaco Police Pursuits, and Plymouth Fury Police Pursuits.
Go to service station and put in a tank full of regular gasoline and drive on. This causes the primary circuit to collapse and begins the induction of the magnetic lines of force from the primary side of the coil into the secondary side of the coil. This plan worked well, as Dodge chassis were used by numerous motor home makers through the 1970s. A inexpensive 440 can produce from 450 to 560 hp without any exotic parts and do it forever! The only thing I'm not sure about is for the trans. Old equipment with modern technology applied. Construction was mainly lightweight plywood with rubber coverings.
Some 413s have wierd heads, especially in industrial and heavy truck applications and these heads are not good for perfomance. I could have a set of reversed dome pistons made. Boring a 413 to 440 involves a. I know this isn't Mopar, but on a further note of the era: I own the 13th Studebaker Avanti built. They got a numericially higher 'dash' designation with the -3 the heaviest duty. I know, I know Seriously, I want that driveline.
