Any pre 79 truck 460 flywheel should work,I think 79 is the year the motor went to be externally balanced.

460 Ford

Thanks Jeff For The Info, I Still Dont Know What Flywheel To Use. My Eng Is Internally Balanced, Its Out To 521 And Ive Got A Zf 5 Spd Behind It. So The Starter Bolts On To The Zf, There 2 Flywheels Listed A 184 And 176 Tooth. I Have To Use A Neutral Balanced Wheel And Balancer. Crank Is Mallory Metal Balanced.

I don't think that the tooth count will matter as long as you use the right starter (for the tooth count). If it has counterweights it's externally balanced. All of this is a lot easier if you can find a good parts man, a salvage yard that caters to 4wd trucks would be a good place to start.

Thanks Pete If What I Have Doesnt Bolt Up Rite , I Could Probably Increase The Amount Of Teeth On The Starter, Ive Already Bought The Parts, They Are New. Its A Lot Easier To Change A Starter Than A Fly Wheel.

you would have to convert the entire engine to external balance unless you took the external balance flywheel and machined off the counterweight. a 390 flywheel will fit, but it's 3/8" thinner and may not work right with the late bell housing.. 460 4spd trucks didn't exist until 1981ish ( at least to hollander interchang ), so your just going to have to make stuff work to use the linc motor..

matt thanks for the response. ill tell you whats goin on. i have a 460 1974 linkon eng i put a scat 521 rotating assembly internally balanced, i used a centerforce 176 tooth flywheel 0 balance. the bolt pattern on the zf 5spd goes on the linkon eng. if a later mdl 460 had a 176 tooth flywheel i should be ok. i dont expect the zf to last to long but i should be able to move the truck. my other thought was use a larger starter gear, if this combo needed a 184 tooth flywheel. thanks for your input. g

The ZF should hold the power, tho if the clutch blows, it will take out the housing.. Your CF flywheel should be drilled for a clutch that will work with the ZF trans.
