Indeed you could use the '59-61 3.75" stroke crank found in the 413 and '59-60 RB 383 (that's the same stroke as the 440),but your post implies your engine is all together and ready to roll. The 1962 B-engine 727 used in '62 Chryslers and Dodge Custom 880's would bolt right on your 440 and has the driveshaft parking brake setup like the earlier cast iron Torqueflites. Like the AAJ brakes, this will be an easily reversible modification. Keeping the later crank in your 440 makes it much more "resalable" in the future.
