Is that the Serpentine system you are talking about? 
No just the brackets to mount the Sanden compressor in the right location to still run the V-belts.  Then the new under hood A/C stuff, all the lines and fittings, drier, switches and condensor.

Rob how did you paint the engine bay?? with a small paint gun or did you get mixed paint put into areosol (sp?) cans??  Did you sand blast first or what did you do?
Looks Good BTW...

Well got the kickdown sorted out, the set is off a 62 413 and is identical to the 68 set-up expept for the clips used on the lower rod ends, and the rods are thicker as well.
I have everything under the hood hooked up, less the A/C lines, just using the compressor as a pulley right now until I can install my new Bouchillion bracket kit for my Sanden compressor and the bouchillion under hood A/C kit.
The motor is read too fire but I have yet to sort out the exhaust and I'm presently working on the rear end.  I pulled the original 741 case with 2.94's and have installed a set of 3.23's in a 489 case.   Also pulled off the 11x2 rear drums and I am installing 11x2.5's instead, more parts available for these.
So once the rear is done, the drive shaft is in I can finally fill the tranny, and then fab up some temporary exhaust, good enought to get through Gov't insp. and then I can take it in to get NEW dual exhaust installed with my HP manifolds!!
So hopefully a couple more weeks and she'll be running and driving...then I still have to check the front brakes and make sure everything else on the car is ready for inspection.

We must search e-bay for the same stuff....
I saw both of those and thought about bidding on the fender trim, but mine are mint so I passed.
Good score on both!!!

I have a spare one off the 71 440....might not be 100% correct style for a 68 but will function fine.  If you want it I'll send it your way.

It just occured to me I have a 68 440 and trans.  What was it you needed?
Hey Steve....If your willing to sell the complete kickdown assembly I'll bite....I really need everything, from intake braket, all 3 kick down rods and all brackets and clips,  BUT I could make some of the pieces I have work.
If you need an intake bracket I can send you a spare one off the 71 440.
Let me know.

Well I've been slowly puttering away on the car.....installed the mini starter, built my own main battery cables from junkyard pieces, installed horns and they don't give you much room to bolt those suckers in..... 
Serviced tranny and installed a drain plug, installed new plugs since the manifolds are off.....I had forgot how long it takes to service plugs with the manifolds ON... 
Forgot to put the tranny lines in before I bolted the motor in...took some bending and twisting to get them in place...."Mental Note on that one." 
Repaired all the dry rotted rubber fuel line pieces and installed 2 fuel ffilters, ione before the fule pump and one after.
Installed new-er valve cover bolts, removed from mid eighties M-bodies...the ones with the captured triangle metal pieces to distribute the load....thought I'd see if these might help with vavle cover leakage.
I also decided last night I would hook up the kick down linkage, I assumed everything would be fine since the 71 and 68 are both C-bodies......NOPE....the single rod kickdown style of the 71 does not work on a 68 C-body.....lack of firewall now I'm on the hunt for a 68 440 kickdown set-up. (See my want ad.)
Still lots to do the holiday season really slowed down my progress.... 
Hope to have it running and driving in another month or so.

Go to the wreckers....they used those in most Ma' Mopar products up into the 90's.
I have a big jar full of them, I always pocket a few when I hit the wreckers....

Hey steve....I'm pretty sure the system on the 57/58 Desoto's were an Electronic Fuel Injection.  They ran an electric fuel pump and had an very simple analog computer system.  That analog system was the weak point of the system and was the reason it never ran right.
The restored 57/58 desoto convertible had the system fully restored on the 392 hemi but the guy redid the old analog computer with modern components, within the original computer control moduals.
It ran much better with the newer control system.
I have the article here somewere but this is what I can recall off hand.

What about the 57/58 desotos that were 392's and EFI'd....I believe there is only one surviving example of these cars, and it's a convertible too boot!!
There was an article in a mopar mag a few years back about this car....gorgeous.
I had no idea that chrysler offered EFI in 62!!  I thought there attempt at EFI died with teh 57/58's.

Thanks Matt...I'm not worried about looking original, I'm going more for reliable function than anything else on the wagon.
Let me know.

Now here are a few pics of the swap...
Motor and tranny came out with no major problems, other than an exhaust stud on each head snapped off....Doooh  Will worry about those next winter when I pull the motor for a rebuild.

Here's a pic of the engine bay before....

And after....

Here's a pic of the ol' girl still up in the air, but motor and tranny are bolted in and secure.
