Motor blew up in my 1997 ZL 440 and one whole side is gone crank and top end. Soo im looking for a 440 or larger motor and i found a good deal on a 550 liquid but its out of a 94-95 style not sure what model.

Here is photos of the 550 motor




I know a 550 in the 96-97 style should bolt in but im not sure about the 94-95

In this build im looking more for a quick drop in, no special mod/mounts


Any input would be great guys!

Thanks,
Tony

Its at my parent place now, but the 440 ZL engine was mounted to a plate then had motor mounts the connected it to the chassie. So this will work?

that plate looks like a zr mount. it can be removed and most likely your old mounts will bolt to the 550 case. the 550, and 580 are the same case and there were some 440's that use that case as well. so I would bolt it in and go

I've never done an engine swap....what I'd be wondering is how those 550 carbs are going to line up with the 440 carb boots????? And, if the height of the crank, and thus the clutch will be off for your drivetrain...wonder what belt to use too????
