I don't think a SM420 was ever used with a torque tube plus your bell housing need to be changed to except the SM420 if I remember right the bell housing need to be from a 1948-54 engine. My guess the answer to your question is yes. Thanks for asking!!!

Marv.

Marvin,
I believe you could get a sm420 in 1/2 and 3/4 ton trucks from 48-54, all had torque tubes bells connected to them.
The question is would his wheelbase change and would his existing torque tube bolt up the the sm420 bell mount.
