I'm installing a 440 into my 1980 RC. the truck had a 360, 727, 208 combo. I'm swapping to a 440, 727, 208 combo. the motor mounts are from a 1978 2wd truck with a 400. My problem is that with the motor bolted up, the transmission mount is 3" ahead of where it should bolt to the transmission crossmember. ??? do i need to modify the transmission to crossmember mount ???

are you using the same trans and t-case from your original truck, or is it all new with the 440? if the 440's mount further back in the engine bay than the 360's, then you may need to relocate your mounts.
