swap a 1966 318/3-speed mopar for a 1968 440/4-speed
I have a 1966 Coronet 318/3-speed which I want to swap for a 440/4-speed from a wrecked 1968 Super bee. I don't see any problem with the engine/tranny swap, but I'm wondering if I can still use the 318 rear end. The 440 is the 350 HP unit, so will the stock rear end take the torque of the 440? I understand the 440 equipped cars use a Dana rear end, but not sure. Any help will be appreciated.

If you can get the Dana axle out of the same Superbee, why not get it? As for your question: the stock 8 3/4 can handle a lot of torque and did come stock behind 383s. You will be surprised how much they can handle. I would not worry.
Try and get that Dana if you can.
