Based on what you have said has been done to the truck, you really shouldn't have many problems if the quality of the work is good.

The pushrods are different for the C heads but you may still be able to use the old ones. Otherwise, it should be pretty straight forward.
You might also notice that the ports are smaller on the C...

I don't know where the number is on that particular damper. On all of the later ones I've seen, it is on the very front.
I think the solid damper is also setup for a 1/2" V belt, rather than 3/8."

The solid damper is from early Y-Blocks. You will want to look at block and head numbers in order to confirm that it is a 292. The earliest parts don't interchange with the later stuff so if you...
