Default First post first dodge 1987 problems!

Hello gang from Cajun Country!

Bought my first dodge. Slant 6 blown, ran hot, hole behind the starter. But! I have a 78' 440-1 stock plus 727 out of an RV, all parts re-usable. What in the heck do I have to deal with. 727 tansmission has a yoke and the s6 has spline. Wiring and vac will be different. Engine mounts should be avilable. So whats the hardest part besides sweat?

does the 440 have a rear or front sump oil pan? does the truck have a computer behind the battery or on the air cleaner? if so you will have to convert to the 4 pin ignition system which should only cost about $100 since you should not need to replace the distributor. just have to buy the 4 pin ignition module, ballast resister and mopar wiring harness.
