i'm builidng a 383 stroker for the upcoming season and am trying to find some parts to get it finished. i've been looking around on ebay and places like that and i noticed there is an 8" balancer and a 6 3/4" balancer. what the **** is the difference?? does it matter which one you run? my motor is externally balanced so i know a need a balance plate for the rear to run a 350 flywheel and i need a 400 balancer, but which size? any help is appreciated.

All of the external balancers are considered 8" diameter but most will measure a little less. The 6 1/4 is more than likely for an internal balanced motor.

bhj makes a balancer that is 6 3/4 inches and is external balanced. this is a good way to hide a 383 or 400 if you run a claimer class.

I HAVE A STANDARD SIZE BALANCER THAT CAME WITH 383 KIT I PURCHASED FROM SPEEDWAY MOTORS. I NEVER USED THIS BALANCER BECAUSE I USED A SMALL BALANCER SINCE MY RULES DID NOT ALLOW STROKERS.I WILL SELL STANDARD BALANCER FOR $45 IF INTERESTED LISA244EVER@MSN.COM
