    actually... YES!! the 5.0 one piece rear main seal crankshafts break at 1-5 rod journal !! IF you use the stronger 302 crankshaft, you will need to have the "oil slinger" at the rear removed ( for the two piece rear seal to the one piece seal), and then the assy balanced, or use the early flywheel and dampner!! Now you are pretty much bullit proof!!

    Just me........................
