    Sachs nfw1050 is the flywheel you need. Your current clutch will work fine.

    i never tried to put the v6 clutch on my v8 flywheel, but they are different sizes. make sure you're cognizant of whether you get a flywheel model that has the studs or not (can't remember the year range) & get a matching pressure plate. if you're pulling the wiring harness from an auto, don't forget to swap over the clutch safety jumper wire in the fuse block. motor mounts from the same configuration truck are needed (1/2 ton & 2wd or 4wd.

    any other questions (and ones you might not've thought of yet) can usually be found in the NBS 4.3 -> v8 swap thread
