Old 360 finally died about two months ago, last week I found a replacement motor and began the swap. normally, I would have built a hotrod motor, but time, budget, and space was limited so I just swapped in a good running stock motor. Hotrod comes later.

I found the 84 in a coworker's front yard a couple years back.

The 79 found me lol, the owner stopped by my work one day and asked if I wanted it. He got it from alberta forestry I believe.

How much for the 440? Does it have the big block bellhousing for standard tranny and flywheel?

It was cheaper for me to get a engine out here than haul one back from BC. the rear door panels, I'm not doing anything with them.

Dave:

Its a Hagglund.

Crazy:
I don't need a Tcase or anything, I'd just need the motor mounts, bellhousing, and flywheel.
