The rods on a 429 and 460 are the same right? (or am I wrong on that one).
If so what is an easy way to tell you are looking at a 460 crank rather than a 429 crank?

429 crank reads 4U and 4UA with a 3.59 stroke, journal size is 3.000 (main) and 2.500 (con. rod).

460 reads 2Y, 2YA, 2YAB, 2YABC, and 3Y, sroke is 3.85 and journals are the same as 429

numbers are on the side of the front counterweight.

And the "3Y" is externally balanced and requires the hatchet shape spacer behind the balancer and a flexplate with a 24.2oz balance weight.
