Same crank in both engines I acquired
Got the mustang engine just for the balancer and flywheel
Machinist guy is checking the rods from the mustang engine as we sit.

Both of the engines should be 50oz imbalance, but the truck engine had connecting rods that seemed a bit lighter than the Mustang engine.

Both appear to have the same balancer----the truck engine had a huge weight on the flexplate----the Mustang engine had a huge weight cast into the flywheel.
