I was just going through my copies of 440 engine swap discussions on this site from a year ago. I have a new '71 440 sitting on a stand and I have decided to put it into my '58 DeSoto Firesweep 2dr hdtp until I can afford to rebuild the original 350. I plan on using my '58 Torqflite. If I swap the 350 crank into the 440 is that all there is to it? Will the 440 then just bolt in? Are the motor mounts on the Firesweep compatible? The Firesweep came from the factory on a '58 Dodge frame. Please let me know of any and all changes that I will have to make. Thanks for your help. Carter
