Flywheel Needed

I'm looking for a flywheel for a 460 pickup w/automatic & 4wheel drive. I
live in Yakima WA so I'd prefer one from nearby if possible.

I guess you mean a flexplate. Have you tried your local junkyard?

Don't buy a used flexplate. They are stamped sheet metal, and tend to
crack around the bolts that hold it to the crank. They are inexpensive
new, and not worth the risk of installing a bad part, especially on a
pickup with a 4wd case.

I've had one break on my 390 pickup, took a cracked one out of my
Fairlane when I bought it, and removed a cracked one after about only
about 5000 hard miles...it was new when installed.
