BBC 540 Flex plate doubt

I am adapting a 540 BBC/Mercruizer in a 61 Impala.The car will use a TH 400 tranny.I have to switch from a fly wheel to a flex plate.Does any one know if there is a properly balanced flex plate that I can buy? Its a MK IV tall deck with Rec port heads and a regular rubber damper engine.

To do it correctly.. You send the flywheel and a 454 Mark lV flexplate to an engine balancer. Balance guy will then find imbalance of flywheel and match the flexplate to that...
