460 ZF5 swap flywheel question

Finally getting around to my ZF5 swap. My truck is an 85' 4x4 F350, 460, currently a 4 speed. I understand that I need to swap flywheels as part of the swap, I am assuming a 460/5 speed flywheel from any 87' - 96' 460 will work? I am going to buy a new one, any suggestions on brand? I was planning on a Luk clutch set, unless there is something better without spending too much? The Luk set is $200 on Amazon.

What year truck did the transmission come from? I know nothing about 460's, but I do know they changed the flywheel requirements on some of the smaller engines depending on what year they are.(different balancing).

I am not sure what year it came out of, I know for sure it is a 460 ZF5 as I have verified the mounting pattern. I will take a look at the trans and see if there are any date codes on it. The internally or externally balanced is what my concern was.

Do not worry about balance.
460's are all external balance after 1979.
There were no manual 460's until 1983.
So, ALL flywheels are external balance.

I installed a Amazon LuK kit back in September.
It is a good clutch.

If the pressure plate bolt pattern lines up you can just resurface your existing flywheel.

Thanks for the help! I will proceed with no worries

If your truck has an existing 12" clutch, the ZF pressure plate should work, if you have a 11" you may run into problems. I ran into the opposite issue when I rebuilt my engine and had my spare low mile ZF flywheel resurfaced and didn't realize my error until the engine was in, bellhousing was bolted up and I went to bolt the pressure plate to the flywheel... D'OH

Are you sure you are getting the 07-092 clutch with the 1 1/4" x 10 spline disc for the ZF?
I'm seeing it for $167.44

I was going to go with the 07-910 as that is what the Luk catalog showed for a later 4x4 460 ZF5 truck, this one
Amazon.com: LuK 07-910 Clutch Set: Automotive Amazon.com: LuK 07-910 Clutch Set: Automotive

Should I go with the 07-092 set instead? Maybe I am missing something obvious

Sorry, I don't know what the difference is.

I DO know the 07-092 fit my ZF swapped truck without a hitch.
Pedal feel and bite are are smooth.

Ah,
The 910 seems to be the "Pro Gold" version, hence the extra $$$.
