pilot bearings size

Ford changed pilot bearing sizes some where along the line, some big blocks used the same size as FE ( 390) engines.

429-460 before 1978 is internally balanced. You can run a 390 flywheel and clutch with a 351M/400 bellhousing.

Internal balance engines, you can use a 390 flywheel/ clutch and 351M/400 bellhousing. External balance engines you need a 460 flywheel because there is no weighted 390 flywheel, and that makes clearence issues with the 351M/400 bell, because there shorter. You can get some shim plates and make it work.
