rear main seal question, a 1986 5.0 crank in 1978 302 block

hello, can I use a 1986 5.0 crank in a 1978 302 block the only difference I see is the 1986 uses 1 piece seal 1978 uses 2 piece seal but the 86 crank dosen't have the flange on end of crank will that cause a problem Thanks Mike

The balance I believe is different. The 5.0L engine is 50oz while the 78 302 is 28oz. You'll need a whole 5.0L rotating assembly w/ balancer.
