Re: [FWDLK] Looking for an engine



I believe you can use the older crankshaft in a newer block.  It is only the flange extension that is a different distance.

Unless you plan on changing to a modern 727 Torqueflite you want a '58-'61 B-Block or RB-Block, the transmissions changed over in '62 and will not work with earlier crankshafts. Also if you are going for "original" in appearance you don't want a '59 RB Block 383 out of a Chrysler or a 413, they are taller and intakes will not interchange with the 361 or B-block 383.  Not trying to be a "Know it all" just trying to save you some time, aggravation, and money.

I am restoring a 60 DeSoto. The 361 engine is stuck and I am not sure I can free it up. If I can't , I will need to find a 59-62 361, 383 or a 413 cid engine that can be rebuilt.
I live in No.Car.,so I am hopping I can find one in the east, but I will consider one from anywhere.
Thanks in advance for your help.   Jim
