The 390 is tired and the Caliente waits for the new 460. I need to find the right flywheel and bellhousing to bolt the factory 66 Caliente 4 speed up to the 460(from a 79 F150). Will the stock F150 oil pan work? The headers and motor mounts will probably have to come from Crites. Thanks.

The oil pan needs to be a front sump truck or passenger car style.
For the bellhousing, you are either looking at paying rediculous money for a factory 429 CJ/SCJ unit, or get an aftermarket unit.

A bellhousing from a 351m or 400 will do the trick for you. You Will need a 429 flywheel , hopefully you have an early 460 which is internally balanced. Best wishes you will not regret the swap after all the details are resolved. Tom
