Yep..... And it's the stroke that makes a 429 3.59, the bores are the same on a 429-460 4.36.

460 stroke is 3.85

My 429 has a D1VE block with D2 heads and started life as a 2 barrel likely from a Mercury. The pistons where small dish 12-14cc and about 8.5/1 compression even at over .040" in the hole by the compression calculator.

Yes 4U is 429 (all 429's are internal balance) and 2Y is internally balanced 460.
