Subject: FTE Perf - howl-tran swap

Hey folks, I need your help really quick. Ive got a very annoying howl
coming from under my truck. Im hopin its just the carrier bearing, but it
could also be my tranny or my diff. It only happens while cruising, it goes
away under acceleration, or decelleration, and when the tranny is put in
neutral. This make me want to point fingers at the used c-6 I put in. If
this is the case, Im converting to a 4 speed. For those of you who dont
know, Tweety is a 74 F-350 w 460. I have the 400 bellhousing, a T-18 tranny,
the pedals, linkage, and steering column. My questions are how do I use the
390 flywheel? Is there a difference in balance? Also which starter would I
use? I just bought a new one and Im hopin its the same as the one the 400
would use. I know Im gonna have to space the rear cross member up a little
bit and lil things like that. I cant remember if Im gonna hafta find a new
driveshaft though. I know the rear portion of the shaft is the same in an
auto or manual, but what about the front half?

Thanks folks

The weight is about the same."

autos just scare me. Thanks everyone.

That's just my opinion.

Actually I like 390's. I'm getting ready to put a 390 CJ/4spd std in a
recently acquired 1963 unibody shortbed. AND I intend to make it my daily
driver.
I'm also going to put twin I-beam front end underneath.
An integral power steering unit is also going in.

IF I wanted more CUBIC INCHES I'D go with a 500 inch plus 460.
I'll park it next to my '56 Panel w/460/C-6 (at least when I ain't drivin'
it).
