Three things I can think of. The pilot bearing and the shaker will need attention. The exhaust might need a little rearranging. Possible throttle bracket?

Sonny if it’s only the block you have you’re going to need a new intake,shaker base, distributor, and maybe exhaust. The headers fit so much easier on a 383 because with the higher deck of the 440 it puts them right against the bottom of the car.
