Re: interchangeability between 390 and 460?

No, C6 transmissions are engine family specific as the bellhousing & trans are a one piece casting ie, small block C6 will only fit Cleveland or Windsor, FE (390 etc) will only fit FE, & 385 series (429, 460 etc) will only fit these engines (but will also suit 351M & 400M).
Power steer, AC, etc will require different brackets to fit 460. Tailshaft will require shortening and possibly a different size rear uni (depending on diff being used).
If your looking to unload the 390 stuff let me know.
Cheers.

In response to your PM,
A 390 C6 definately will not fit a 460, the rear block mounting is completely different
