There were only automatic 460 trucks until hydraulic clutches in '83.
ALL pre-79 engines were internal balance.

D9TE blocks are external balance.
You can put an external balance crank in a pre-D9 block, but not the other way around (without a lot of clearancing)

Is this a 429 from a medium duty truck, or an old car engine?
Internal balance 385 's will require a zero balance flywheel.
This was a running change during the 1979 model year.
460 trucks never...

Thanks Chris! :)

(Snarky comment removed)

Extra wiring, yes, you need to add a 12Ga. trigger wire from the fender relay to the starter's solenoid.
The existing starter cable moves to the "hot" side of the fender relay.

Walker crinkle bent tailpipes won't last two salty CT winters. (Truck is 28yo now, I KNOW!)
And they were $79 + about $30 in hangers each time.
