I think they would, however I would strongly advise you you get something in the 3.73 range and then get an overdrive unit.

Cheap swap to overdrive would be a ZF5. Bolt in swap.

Better swap would be an NV4500. That gets expensive but the trans is a lot stronger. Still cheaper than a gearvendors though.

No, the diesel uses a different bellhousing bolt pattern.
There is an option for auto trans with OD. The E4OD was used behind 460's in later model trucks. Only drawback, they require a controller to make them work, as they are electronically controlled.

Non floating axle with a 460? That's a first. Usually all 460's had full floaters.

I'm thinking he has a Dana 60 NF, and wants to swap the gears into his Dana 50-60 Full Float rear in his 460 truck?

No, you'll need a 5 speed out of a 460 to fit a 460. No other engine had the same bell housing that the 460 has. (no other big block had a 5 speed, so only 460 5 speed will fit)
