    Default Balancer size - 454 (1988)

    I installed one new distributor today and set my TA using my light. I would like to doublecheck the accuracy by adding timing tape.

    What size balancer do the 454's have? This will save me a trip to the boat if someone knows.

    thanks
    Bob

    You can save a few bucks by just scribing a line the appropriate distance (& direction) on the balancer....use the arc length formula if the idea is 'new'..

    If you opt for the tapes, make sure you 'reverse' the directions on the RH engine....

    Thanks guys, I was able to pick some up today locally for $5 a sheet. Good point on the RH engine, I might have missed that!

    Good news is that my timing light and the tape readings are in synch.
