Which flywheel?

Which flywheel do I need to use with a '93 Lightning motor and 11" clutch? I'm considering using this engine in a 71 Bronco and do not know if the old flywheel is balanced correctly. I'm thinking not...

Are you having the motor balance or is the bottom end stock?

Well, I decided to go with a different engine than the Lightning. I found a Fox Lake 393 shortblock in the Corral classifieds. It came with a Ford Racing dampner that has a replaceable bobweight. Now my question is can I use the 28 oz bobweight that's on it since the engine has been internally balanced and I am using an "early" flywheel or do I need a 50 oz weight? The flywheel has a D1.... (1971) part number.

If the engine is internally balanced check with Fox Lake since it may require no weights on the balancer or flywheel, otherwise it would be a 28oz imbalance.
