    Welcome William , best of luck on the 440 project was fortunate to be a Mopar tech many years back in the day and have built a few Jet and V-drives with 440's over the years with good success These were great American Iron power houses and all to often passed over for marine applications IMO

    For $3500 this would have all the parts you need. You could sell the boat after you get what you want from it to recoup some of your money. I am surprised no one has mentioned that a marine motor is typically clearanced a little differently. Many a great street/strip motor has been destroyed quickly by putting it in a boat without prepping it for marine use.

    I can only find pictures of the water exit plates and a poor picture of the PTO takeoff. The parts look similar to the pictures already posted. All of my parts are CNC machined and custom fit to your setup, so anything I would make would be designed the way you want them.

    I have always used a section of the bellhousing and a plate I make that I weld to the bellhousing. The B/RB engine family starter bolts to the transmission, so in a marine application, this needs to be addressed somehow.
