Crankshaft Balancing?

I have a crankshaft from a Ford 200ci Inline 6 cylinder. The Crankshaft had about 55K miles on it and looks to be in really good shape. Would it be recommended to balance it before putting it in a new engine? It is going to be a mostly stock rebuild other than a tri-carb intake and hydraulic cam.

For a stock rebuild no not necessary, to do a real balancing job you have to have the entire reciprocating assembly balanced...crank, rods, pistons w/ pins, pistons rings, flex plate/flywheel and harmonic dampner.

i agree... you can match your piston and rod weights yourself
