I'm having a little trouble with this 460 engine that I just bought. The numbers on the block says its a 70's 460 from a Lincoln but when I got it, it had a unweighted balancer and flex plate on it which made a bad vibration so I'm trying to find out the easiest way to determine which weighted balancer and flex plate I need? I did find a weighted crankshaft spacer would that be a choice to use or not?

460 is right,It shouldn't have a weighted flywheel,or a hatchet spacer behind the dampner,

could be a late model?


do a compression test
