Use the starter and flywheel from the 428. The flywheel for a 428 is counter weighted.

Dan,

I don't know, I was only commenting on the idea of the 428 coming out of a 66 thunderbird from somewhere. Hate to see that happening , but of course it may have come out of a complete loss situation.

Are you sure it was Flairbird that died to provide the 428?
A myriad of Fords were fitted with 428 motors in the mid 60's.
