You cannot make a 413 block into a 440 = period.

If you find a 413, at least you will have a steel crank and decent rods. Maybe. I am not sure the 72 motor home engine has steel crank.
Most else is scrap iron..... maybe you want to salvage the closed chamber heads, unless it is a 70s motor home 413.

Later 440s pop up around here for less than $200 once in a while. The last 2 we got we gave $ 100 each for, one had a 727 on it.

Southern Missouri border.
No rusty bodies here either.

In April bought a running driving no smoker complete car for $ 250.
Pulled the 440/727 and Got 350 for the car as scrap iron.

Pulled the salvage yard $100 440/727 apart last night. Complete, stock intake, and bad Holley.
Found a recent rebuild = .030/.020 cast crank, .060 over with cast pistons .125 down in the hole, average BBM open chamber heads with HD bronze guides, decent valves, bearings look like new, .002 total bore excess at the top. Looks like a deglaze and rering..... defintely worth $100 for a complete engine.
Will get the usual cam upgrade, Perf RPM, carb, distributor....should make an honest 370 hp for $800 total.

400 block. Bore 0.050" to 4.390"
440 crank. Offset grind rod journals to 2.200" for new stroke of 3.925"
BBC 6.135" rods. Bore pin end 0.050" to 1.040"
429 Ford flat-top pistons +0.030".
Presto, 475 CID.

Good info,
but a lot of $$$$$$$ to gain only 24 cubes over a 440/451.
BUUUUT a 400 is a short deck...... if stealth is important.

Yup, that is a real goal to obtain.......for a FORD 5.0

I tend to shoot for single digit 8 numbers in the 150-160MPH plus range in the 1/4 with my beat up old Plymouth...
Would love to see pictures of some of your toys.
