Your kit needs to be balanced with a specific counterbalance flywheel and balancer. Most 347 kits balance easiest to a 28oz imbalance. You will have to take the entire rotating assembly along with the balancer and flywheel to have the entire setup balanced.

Was this a balanced assy. when you purchased it?? If so, you'll have to ask the builder.

It could be 28 or 50 oz. imbalance.

If it wasn't balanced, then when you take it to the machine shop for a balance job, they will determine what it will be balanced too.

Very rare that strokers are balanced to 50oz, highly advise against it also. If it didnt come balanced take it locally for 150-175 dollars and have it balanced to 28oz

Or it could be "zero" balance. At least that's what my 347 Eagle kit is.
