Anyway here you go.
Back in the day people referred to the poly engine as a wide block because they looked wide. The first modern A poly engine went into a 55 Chrysler @...www.forabodiesonly.com
You can adapt anything to anything given enough time, tooling, and determination. But I would first look at your case snd see if the cracked case can be repaired. It may require the transmission to be disassembled prior to the repair depending on where it is cracked.The original trans in my 57 Desoto with Poly V8 has a cracked case. Does anyone know if a 727 from the 70's will bolt up to that engine?
No!Wow! I knocked the lid off a big can of worms . here. This was a simple yes or no question that turned into history of of Chrysler engines. I don't there was a clear just yet. Let me try this again. I have a 1957 Desoto Firesweep. It has a 325CI poly engine in it. The ORIGINAL trans has a cracked off ear on the band apply pin support. I want to know if a later model 727 has the same has the same bolt pattern as the old 488. Will the 727 bolt up to that 325 without an kind of adaptor?
The pan is on it now. It's not actually a crack. Part of one off the bosses that a band apply pin goes through broke off. There are a couple of ways to fix it. I rebuilt trans for many years but just wasn't sure of the bolt pattern on the back of a 325 Poly engine. Since this is an all original well preserved one owner car, I'm the second owner now, I will probably fix the original trans.Can you show a pic of the crack?
