Damm you guys, I was fine with Small blocks. :rolleyes:
Don't forget the oil pan/pickup and motor mount brackets as the RV 440s still used the '71-back mounts and pan.

On the transmission of course a 727 would be the simplest route unless you want to swap out for a manual or a AOD, either of those options gets expensive or time consuming trying to find all the stuff required for the conversion.

I'd go with a non lockup A518 and a conversion bellhousing so you can use a standard cast crank 440 torque converter and a toggle switch for OD, a lockup trans would require a balanced flexplate or a custom TC.

Looks like the factory water pump. I have never seen these bolts used on a water pump though.

Be sure to go back with either the HD water pump like the one you currently have or one of the modern anti cavitation pumps and not one of the generic ones with six blades, like the thermostat it's a major overheating issue otherwise as I mentioned in my trucks thread.
