Post vibration dampner

I have a 1956 265 v-8.I have put it in a 39 chevy.I want to replace the crank pulleys with chrome ones,but the original pulleys are riveted on.Once I removed the rivets connecting the pulleys to the dampner,there seems to be a problem mounting the new pulleys to the original dampner.There is no center bolt in the crank snout so I am wondering what my options are.Do I need to replace the dampner with a newer,larger one that will accept the chrome pulleys?Will this affect the balancing of the engine?Any help would be appreciated.

You can use a 350 style balancer. Your 265 is internally balanced just like a 283-350. I would recommend drilling the crankshaft for a retaining bolt. The little balancers used on the 265s, and 283s weren't much of a damper, but they worked.
