"You are right- Nobody will work on mine either -"
Sigh...
The future is bright for a young person willing to learn!

F150 conversion sounds interesting, have any links to details?
The Eaton pump was used by Ford, IH & Studebaker, try parts kits for those. You can always just order up the seals & bearings separately...

Something to consider for those who have never done this before...
The blasting media gets EVERYWHERE.
Steering column, window regulators, headlight switches, trunk hinges, ad nausium.
The good news is it is not a flood car :)
Can't wait to see her finished.

I personally know six people who have had Pertronics failures.
Be damn sure you carry the old parts in the Glove box as you may need them.

Given a 1/16" or so leeway, as long as the seal will ride on a smooth & polished portion of the balancer, you will be OK.
Been there, just did that... Use a little sealer on the crank snout too.

Looks like a classic "old tire" failure.
Don't think they have made those in years...

Looks like the second crank pulley for a 55-56 PS car. Likely there since new & a low stress application.
But if available for reasonable, may as well replace...

My '55 Panama has TL & manual brakes. The master cylinder is located under the Driver's floor board.
With a fabricated bracket & a master with outlets on the outboard side, a tandem master would be fairly simple.
With disks, the residual valve would need to be removed from that outlet.
