I acquired a new 302 SBF engine for my '67 which came with a 289.
My question is since the new 302 has an internally balanced crank do I have to replace both the flex plate (flywheel) and the harmonic balancer-damper with neutral balance components Huh?

The 289 harmonic balancer-damper has a massive counterweight which I suspect would be catastrophic on an internally balanced crank.
I had already purchased a neutral balanced flex plate but wasn't sure about the harmonic balancer-damper.
I did go and order a neutral balance harmonic damper through Summit Racing but just wanted some re-assurance that I was doing the right thing.

     Answer to your question: YES.

     Now, whether what you ordered, and from where you ordered it from........ well?
