I need some specs on my 81 Chieftain

Ok so i have a 1981 Winnebago Chieftain, 29' with 440-3 motor and 727 trans. I want to know specs on the motor and trans and full drive train. Can anyone help me out with what the factory specs are on the drive train?

Exactly what type of specs? Horsepower, torque or rebuilding specs?

HP= 225 @ 4000 RPM
TORQ= 330 @ 2400 RPM
COMP. RATIO= 8.2 TO 1
RED LINE= No spec found, I believe it was about 5,500.
Really no need to spin a M/H engine past 5,000.
