    440 in a b-body

    I dunno about charger hood clearance. I DID put a 440 in a 78 magnum that was orig a 318. It lacked 3/4" of closing the hood, the a/c comp held it up. worked the motor mounts and k frame a bit and got it to work. Good Luck!!

    Maybe not. It will fit fine, but if you put on an intake that's pretty high or a spacer, it's really close. I put some putty on the air cleaner and lowered the hood slowly and that was with the 400. Just put a scoop on it.

    Only thing you have to watch is clearance between the carb and the hood. It will fit just fine as others have said. Just watch the space depending on the air cleaner you use and intake.

    $300 for a '72 440/727 from a car is a good deal. You can do a 440/727 in a '76 B.

    Yes, the 440 engine was FACTORY installed in the B-body cars up until 1978, and used extensively in police vehicles up until that time. I can't help much with the details, but it does fit!!

    I personally drove a couple of '72 440 Fury police cars, and, although they were down on compression, they ran quite well!

    Be advised that the '72 engines did not have hardened valve seats in the heads for today's unleaded fuel, though, but you are probably going to check out and refurbish the 440 BEFORE putting into your car, I hope!

    That would be a cool swap!
