I'll keep my eye open as I go through organizing & catologuing things...

If I recall correctly, there was a slight difference between 84 & 85 ... if U put an 84 Balancer on an 85... it would work... but ONLY if U set the timing MANUALLY... ie getting TDC (Top Dead Center) of the piston etc.... I'm almost positive I had to do this with one of my previous cars...

The Notch on the Balancer..... for using a Timing Light .... differs slightly between the two years.... so CANNOT set timing using a Timing Light...

Can anyone confirm this ?? (& possibly explain why 2 slightly Different Balancers for the same 5M Engine ??)
