Most, probably all C50 and C60 that had a 350 V8 had heavy duty motor with forged steel crankshaft and rods. The 2 barrel carbs were governed with a vacuum line from the distributor to limit engine speed so they wouldn't spin that huge flywheel and clutch into the danger zone. They also had a speed warning light in the dash gauges. Imagine a big sawblade coming out under the floor or wherever it wanted to go. I put a regular 350V8 in a medium duty truck and it broke the crank just before the rear main.

Just as a follow up. A standard 1-18" input shaft and bearing retainer does fit as a replacement to the 1-1/2" input shaft. Got the Novak kit for the Dana 300.
