oh boy! 327 and 350 both can use same damper what you got is an old short nosed water pump so alternator bracket is this big long flat deal on the right, you need a long nosed water pumps' alternator bracket that mounts on the left (as you look at the engine from in front) 327 balancer was press on only and was 6", 8" is better but should have a bolt in center to hold it on. just ask me, i stripped it. your alternative is to keep the short nosed water pump and find the older pulleys.
i just re read your question, yes use the old balancer but use the bolt in the 350's crank too
