283 balancer on a 400 sbc??

Anyone ever use a 283 balancer on a 350 or 400 sbc? I figure it would reduce the reciprocating mass quite a bit.

It will work on a 350 as they are internally balanced. But it won't work on a 400 as the balancer helps to balance the crank (external balance)

Somewhere I saw a test where a larger balancer caused the valve & ignition timing to be more accurate, and it had better power.
