Looking to find a replacement balancer for my 1969 302DZ. I called Ricks Camaro and asked them about the one they sell. Supposedly it is technically correct but they gave me the GM part number. It is 88960604. The application is for a 1970-74 350, ZZ4 crate engine. GM performance parts shows that current replacements are no longer available. Does anyone know what I should go with? I hate to buy a used one. Also what is the thickness of the original. Is it 1 11/16 inches?

If originality is important to you, find a used original and have it rebuilt by The Damper Dudes. I did and it is just fine.

I have an old Chevy performance Parts Cat (2001) that shows PN 12555879 8" for 70-74 Z28 and L82, and ZZ4, says it is 1 11/16" at ring. 7 th edition of Chevy Power from 1994 says 1969 Z-28 used a 1 5/16" damper PN 3947708, which is discontinued. They also showed the 1970 LT-1 and L-82 to be 8" x 1 11/16" PN 6272224. I have a 7704 damper which is 1 5/16 ", came off a '69 Chevrolet, and also had the -772 fan. Now since my damper is long gone, I need one as well! A buddies Z is apart right now, but I was thinking his damper said 7708L, and looked fatter than 1 5/16".

So, to make a long story longer, what IS the word on this!!!
