We got the 318 we are hoping to use in the dart out of the barn after sitting since 1989

The later trans you have there is the one to use because it's already set up for a slip-in yoke and NON-pushbutton shift. The '60 probably has the ball and trunion style driveshaft so you'll need the correct slip-yoke version
I don't think were gonna do a whole lot to the engine, we just want to get it in so the car is a driver. That hard drive is scrap, probably only good for vise testing lol.
max wedge, yup I have!
Interesting, never heard of the wide block 318 though. It will probably bark and make some noise without any problem.
the poly 318 engine was chrysler corp. best made engine and my favorite! the transmission is a torque flight. get a small block bell housing and mount it to the 3 on the tree manual trany.

nice, that transmission is most likely a 904 a good tranny just to put around with and the rear end from a slant six car is different than a v8. im not to sure how far back mopar started that but i would keep an eye on it. but it should be fine for cruising. 
hey - it's uxwbill I didn't know you watched bah53 too!
a poly and a max wedge are two different designs.... the poly is "polyspherical" it is basically a hemi or "hemispherical" head design. the wedge is quite a bit different of a design... but no matter what chrysler engine you are talking about. they are all great. chrysler made consistantly the best engines for years. i dont think they ever really came out with a bad one. atleast not until the 90's then some got a little iffy...
you should check the timing cover gasket... i hear they tend to wanna go on these early 318's... then you get massives ammounts of coolant dripping right into the oil pan...
