Are you looking for a true 460 flywheel with the 12 inch clutch or are you doing the 460 swap and can use a 390 flywheel?

I am doing a swap. I did not know for sure if a 390 flywheel would work, if it will that makes my search a lot easier because I still have a few of those.

What year 460 is it? 79 and later are the externaly balanced motors and if so the 390 will not work unless you get it balanced. I have used the 390 flywheel on 78 and early 460 motors.

wont he need to check the bellhousing too?

If his 78 truck had a 351m or 400 then the bellhousing would be fine with an internal balance 460. If he has an external balance 460 he will need 79 and later bellhousing too.

It is a 76 model 460, so my 390 flywheel will work, thanks for that info. I did'nt know when they went to external balance. If anybody has a set of headers for this swap (73-79 F-150 460 4wd) I would be interested in either chassis or fenderwell exit.
