I'd go with hte codes and get that O2 sensor changed and then see what you get.
There's a reason for the check engine light.

2003 Steve.  Time flies, eh?  I remember the year because I bought the Newport and Mariah's Neon after selling the New Yorker to you.
I think I made out the best, though.  I got two cars, two computers, one camera, one night in Jersey, and a freind!

i always thought there was a 4th size..
Sorry, kind of ignored this question.
No, there were only three sizes of slant 6 motors, but the 198 did come as an aluminum block for one year.  It was these motors that became the 199 HP "Hyper PAc" motor.  But, they were not good motors as the piston sleves rapidly deteriorated.  I saw one for sale at a Fling once. he guy was asing a grand, but another dude standing by said, "Who are you going to find that can fix those bad sleeves?"  An argument ensued.
People did put the 4 bbl intakes and manifolds on the 225.  Today, such a motor can scream if properly built!  They are excellent motors.  They were designed to run WITHOUT OIL!  NAme another that can!
The /6 continued into the early '90s as a truck motor when it was finally replaced by Mopar's 3.9 V-6, a 318 minus two cylinders.  In the 80's you could find slants with 2 bbl carbs which was the only time other that the Hyper PAc motors when a slant came with something other than a 1 bbl.
Hope this helps.

so i'd need to get a A727 from a BB??
Yes, the 727's bell is specific to small or big block motors due to the bolt pattern. 
As for fabricating, I don't know, but surely this has been done before.  I did find myself wondering is a BB would fit into an M's engine bay, or whether the shock towers would be too close?
You said you have a Coronet 440.  Is it a "Coronet 440" or a Coronet with a 440?  On the model "Coronet 440," the 440 does not indicate the size of the motor.  (Not trying to insult you, but I have found people who do not know this.  Most C 440s came with 318s.)
If your buddy wants good power but wants to avoind all of the hassle, a good built 360 would be a bolt-in.  You woud still need to swap the rear and perhaps think about going with a SB 727.

are the ONLY differences in the RB a B blocks the deck height??
Yes, plus larger crank and pistons.  The RB is about two inches wider than a B.  The RB has a wider intake and longer distributor than the B.  Heads and exhaust manifolds are interchangable between the two.
To put a B/RB into a car where an A sat takes new motor mounts, different (larger) radiator and a Big Block specific transmission if going auto, and a BB bellhousing if going manual trans.  You will also need to change the driveshaft to a different length.
Finally, that tiny 2.32 rear that most M Bodies had will not work with a BB, so that will need to be changed as well.
In other words, what it takes is quite a bit of money.

The entry level "Royal" came standard with the 360 2bbl in 1971
Yes, that is the car that is for sale on ebay under the heading "Jimmys Dead - I got his car!"  He is asking for a starting bid over 6 grand with no reserve.  He also lists the car as having 200,000 miles!  Whoa!

I know it was not available until 73 in the Newport.  The rest were 383's.
Steve, my friend, you're wrong.
Open the Bible - Statndard Catalog of Chrysler - to the 1971 Chrysler section.  Now, read the first paragraph under the "Newport Royal" heading.
Don't feel bad; I was wrong too when I said they first appeared in '72.
We're never too old to learn new things.

If you are using the trusty book i have. . it's wrong.  The 360 wasn't offered until 1973 in the Newport.  It also had electronic ignition standard then.
A "K" in the VIN of a '71 indicates a 360 2bbl.  That's what this car had which was why I looked.  My '75 Chilton's book has it that way as well.  The 360 4bbl was not available until '74.

Tater, the LA motor originated in '64 with the introduction of the 273 small block.  That block was bored to 318 c.i.d. in '67, then 340 in '68, and finally 360 in '72.
I was looking at a '71 Newport in ebay today that was claiming to have a factory 360 in it.  You will notive what  said a few weeks back about the 360.  So, I grabed my trusty Chrysler Corp. Code Book and - viola - I was [color=#ff0000 size=6]WRONG![/color]  The 360 was, indeed, first offered in '71, not '72.
See, I correct my mistakes.  hey are few, but I do corect them.

the 302 chev engine,was just a 283 crank in a 327 block,nothing spectacular there!. In fact,..if they would have given the 327 the same parts as the 302,they would have had more hp,because they would have had close to 10% more cubic inches.
Glen, the 302 was built to Trans-Am specs - nothing larger than 305 c.i.d.  So it's not about what they cold have done, it's about what they did do to run in that class.  The '70 Challenger TA and 'Cuda AAR cars were sold to the public with 340s, but on the track they ran 305s.  The Chevy Z-28 with a 302 (only car to have that motor) was for the public what was being run on the track.  Could be why a 302 powered Z will draw more bucks today than a TA or AAR, even though there are far more of the formar cars than the latter.
