but was the balancer lined up with the factory pointer and balancer mark..
you said you used a piston stop..

I'd line up the factory marks.. I'm willing to bet your marks don't line up when the factory marks are... I'm willing to bet your marks are 60-74* off

line up the factory marks,, and then scribe your marks at 2 oclock done.

your outer ring of the balancer might have moved also..
