Harmonic balancer?

G'day Folks,
I'm after a harmonic balancer for my 383. Any suggestions on whether to go steel or alloy? I see Romac do an all-alloy neutral balancer & a steel-alloy counterweighted balancer. What's the go with neutral balance compared to counterweight?
Cheers, from Mal.

Hi Tufltd,
i have the Romac balancer too. Mine is the one that has the counter balance on it.

If you look behind the balancer, it looks like a standard ford one, with the big lump on it to balance the crank weight.

An unbalanced one is only good if you are going to internally balance your crank, that is drill it and add mallory slugs to it.

Re: Harmonic balancer?

Romac ones are good but they are a prick to fit. They are really tight tolerance wise. Balancer choice will depend on how your crank is balanced. Internal or external?
