90 7.3 idi to 91 460 overdrive swap

Hey all im new to this site so not sure if posting right anyway is the bellhousing bolt pattern the same on a 90 7.3 idi(NOT A POWERSTROKE) as a 91 460 overdrive,not sure the tranny no. Will the idi bolt to the 460 tranny?Thanks for any help i can get before i do the swap.

No, they are not the same. They won't bolt together.

No,they are different , But a 460 ZF5 can be made to fit a diesel. BTW the IDI(6.9&7.3) and 7.3 powerstroke are the same bellhousing pattern

The reason for useing zf5 is its two wheel drive tranny/truck,the idi & tranny donor i have is 4wheel drive.Trying to keep from doing input shaft and whatever other crazy things i would have to do to get the 4x4 tranny to work in 2wheel truck.
