Will any of these intake fit?

I have the 1960 318 Poly motor. I have managed to find some 4 barrel intakes that say they will fit. I don't believe it. Their tech support is also telling me they will fit. I still don't believe them.

Partstrain has a few but something doesn't look right. For instance the Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake SKU: E117576 says it is the 340/360, but then list's the 1960 Dodge Pioneer with the 318 5.2L as an engine it will fit.

Will any of those Intakes fit my 1960 Dodge 318 Polysphere motor?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry dude. That is a poly head 318. It stands all alone. The bellhousing shares the same bolt pattern as later model small block Chryslers, but it ends there. There have been aftermarket and oem 4 bbl intakes for this. EBAY, my MOPAR brother!

techinspector1...I don't get the "polishing a turd" comment AT ALL. What the heck is wrong with glitzing up an early poly??? Man, I'd at least poke around a while for some cheaper old aftermarket goodies before going out and getting a donor drivetrain. Just think of the time, effort, fabbing, etc(for a newbee)...just to avoid some effort in finding some affordable stuff for the poly?

A swap to a belly button 360,383 or boat anchor "motorhome 440" is just that, boring as all get-out. Trick a poly out and show you have class

Too funny.
Too true.
Tie a chain around that 318 "wide block" and throw it overboard.

The 318 "LA" series, little sister to the 340 and 360 was a GREAT little mill. I drove the BAG out of a couple of them ... they're all but bulletproof.

The 340 was probably the best performer. I saw plenty of 140 MPH stock 340 Dusters.

Although I do agree that I will never get out of a Poly what I could out of.....well....most anything else, the simple fact is that if I can spend 500 now to get her going fairly strong, and take my time building something worthy of the body, then that is what I will do. I can't afford to spend 300-500 for an engine, and then 1000-1500 re-building it. Not all at once right now anyways.

Also let the truth be known that if this was Chevy or BOP, I would have no problems at all. When it comes to Dodge, Until recently I didn't even know what the most popular engines were, let alone which are small blocks and which are big blocks. Dodge is just something I never tinkered with. Same with Ford, but I will go down that path if I ever own one.

So when I read the Hotrodders Bulletin Board Guidelines, I should have ignored them? I made a post about which way I should go with this car in the General Rodding Tech. Now because I have a question about intakes, it should have gone there as well? And if I have questions about brakes, it should go there too? That way, when someone else is looking for answers about brakes on a car like mine, they can look in a thread titled, "At a cross road and needing advice?". That makes on sense to me, but if that is how you all want it.

I found an engine with the numbers 4006730-318-7. Will it bolt to my 2 speed TorqueFlite transmission that the car came with?

I don't know how to decode Chrysler casting numbers, but if it is the '67 or newer "LA" series of engine ... it appears that all of those share the same bolt pattern.
The attached image is from B&M's on-line (PDF) catalog, and they don't seem to specifically list the older 318 as being different there.
Refer to page "13 0f 15"

If you have 7-3/4" between the top two bolts on your existing trans ... I would bet that it will fit.

Thanks.

I Googled' it many times in many different ways. Some sites say it is a 76 to 84 engine. One site says it is a 68 to 84 engine.

I was told by the guy I bought the car from that the next gen 318's would bolt up. I think it was 68 to 76 engines he said. The fact that this engine casting number goes from 68 to 84 makes me go hmmmmmmm.

Hopefully this weekend I will be able to go see this engine, and take some measurements with me.

68 to 84 sounds right to me. That is what is known as the "LA" series small block. 273, 318, 340, 360.

As I said earlier the 340 was the best stock performer of the group.
