wrong flywheel

I was having a vibration problem in my car and after several opinions from people that didn't seem to be the problem I decided to take it to the local hotrod guru. I told him to go throug the car and fix whatever he thinks needed fixing.
The first thing he noticed was the engine is a 350cid and the flywheel was a 400 flywheel. He purchased the correct one and will install it when he gets it in from Summit. He never explained to me what happens if the flywheel is incorrect.
Can someone tell me what happens in this case? Does the engine wear out? Is it unbalanced? did I do any harm to the engine by driving it this way for 2000 miles.
It was that way when I bought it.
Thanks, Mark
