Yes the 400 small block is externally balanced and must use a 400 balancer and flywheel/flexplate. If you have the incorrect pieces on it, it will destroy the thrust surface and can do other catastrophic damage.

It has been 2 1/2 days since I suggested you pull the plugs and read them. Apparently you have not done that yet. You can talk about this until the cows come home, but if you're not going to get up off your duff and do something about it, you'll continue to have the problem.

I just don't get it sometimes!!! :rolleyes:
