413s were good motors, although a lot of them came in trucks and motorhomes, which would be a lower HP model.............they are a good base for something with a bigger cam and heads

Jump on that sucker!

This is where MaxWedge started, they are mighty powerful engines when done right and given the drag and NASCAR racing history they left behind, it's easy to do them right. And I'm not even a Chrysler guy, but you have to bow to greatness where you find it.

this is a good platform to build a good engine from.it most likely has a forged crank and can safely be bored out .060 over or more.

ck the numbers to find out what you have especially the heads chances are its a pass engine but thats OK still a good place to start.

In the early 60s there was 3 versions of the RB wedge engine 383/413and 426 at that time there was no 440 and there was 2 versions of the 383 one B-block and other a RB.

the difference between the engines is there bore they all shared the same stroke.

the raised block version of the 383 shared its bore with the 361.

a steal at that price

This site is the bees knees , man.
I will jump on it , as instructed.... but does that help out with HP or RPM range? lol
I thought it might be a bunk motor or something .....
that's why I asked.
I'll check out those articles , as well. I am one of those semi- dumb knuckle busters , I've figured out Ford V-8s and SBC's , but I've never messed with a Mopar .
I really apreciate all the advice y'all put out there .
Safe motoring to all of ya

Shane I lived in that era, just imagine all that power, not only from MOPAR, but everybody else's camp as well running around on nylon corded bias ply tires and drum brakes. The fact any of us lived to reproduce is amazing.

When these guy come to advertising big drum brakes, the only thing I can say is you can't make em big enough to come close to what the lowliest disk can do. I've had many a muscle car that you couldn't come close to stopping from the speeds it could get to. In showroom trim a 413/426 wedge, 406/427 Ford, 409 and both 427 Chevies and everybody else's top offerings could easily top 150 mph down the back stretch of Riverside raceway in SoCal. What these things could do in the hands of a race team would add another 50 or more MPH on the long straights.

That's 4000 pounds at 150 200 mph with bias ply tires and drum brakes. And you thought XBox was life on the edge.
