    Is any body using a Magnum SFI Ballancer? If so what brand and model are you using? I am not sure which one to get. Don't want to buy a cheap one and have it come apart on me. Thanks mopar65

      If you just mean Magnum balance...your choices are pretty slim. Turboking above is correct.

      if you mean actual magnum with a serp belt, i believe ATI makes one.

      I didn't source one from ATI for a reason. i cant remember if it required a spacer for the standard LA timing cover/belt spacing setup. Sometihng weird.

        If you get a 2 piece factory magnum balancer, you can bolt the serp pulley to the 90012

            Thanks for the info. I am using the factory magnum timing chain cover. Serpentine belt etc. My magnum has the early Blancer with the removable crank pulley. Doing more research today I found one made by PRW. Says it works with LA or magnum engines. Here is a picture of it. Screenshot_20200204-220348_eBay.jpg

            Good find, looks like it has the 3 different weights to cover all small blocks. Comparing the 2 they look identical minus the red ring.

                good feedback. Are you using a magnum timing cover and pulleys? or LA?

                I'm using LA everything that's not magnum specific like intake and heads.
                The motor's a 1998 5.9 Mopar performance crate 300hp straight from Ma Mopar so it came equipped with LA componants.

                Yes...I'm familiar with putting an LA cover on a magnum... do it daily.

                my worry for @mopar65 is that if that damper is merely an LA damper, with multiple weight selections, he will have spacing issues getting magnum pulleys to work on an actual magnum cover.

                I have one in the garage and a stock mag balancer. I can measure their thickness later tonight

                That's a good point.
                I wouldn't be able to help there.
                It didn't require a spacer on my engine, which did come with an original magnum damper.

                Well I got the PRW Balancer for my 5.9 magnum engine today. I orderd it through summit racing and looks like I might be sending it back. One of the extra balance weights came loose inside the box and most of the powder coat. On the back side of the Blancer is gone. And some of the coating on the outside edge has been Rubed off. Which sucks for me I was really wanting to put it on my engine this weekend

                Well that’s not good. The weights should have been secure in the foam. I blame shoddy shipping when’s that kind of thing happens.

                I agree. But summit sent me a RMA to send the bad one back and are sending me a knew one already.
