    I used that balancer on my 306. Seems like a decent piece. I liked the cosmetic appearance of it for sure. I only have maybe an hour or a bit more run time with it but seemed to do the job. Keep an eye on it though as there is a LOT of talk on the WEB about it failing prematurely. I couldn't discern if the noise was from a long time ago or not so made a note to keep it in mind.
    For my stroker, I decided to go a different path as it required a zero balance piece and used a Ford Motorsport unit. I mention it only because it has the same facial mounting depth as the PP piece and would work with the CVF set-up too should anyone down the road be interested. I did have to clearance the waterpump casting just a very little bit though.

    Just curious, what are the other options for a 6.4", 3" long 50 oz damper for use in this scenario? I've seen the one you mentioned above (M-6316-D302) but it's 6.6" and I am concerned about clearance, sounds like it won't work without modifications. I ask because I just picked up this same CVF kit for my FRPP 302. I hate to get something that is suspect, but if the 80007 is the only game in town then what choice do I have? I've also looked at the PP reviews and have not seen anything that looked recent, either good or bad.

    I'm picking up a new timing chain cover while I'm at it...M-6059-D351. Not sure if that makes any difference.

    Don't be too concerned. The difference is only .100" of an inch variance measured radiance. IF...and that is an if...you had to do a bit of clearancing there is enough meat on the cover to accommodate it. I just went through this on my last engine.
