Maybe see if a machine shop can tell you? Does it have any part numbers on it that you can cross reference? Did the person you bought it from tell you anything about where it came from?

Try this part number in a search. E8TR-AA

I think this flywheel was used in some trucks as well. The early 90's F-series w/the 5.0 comes to mind. Are there ANY other numbers or letters on it at all?

You can have flywheels rebalanced to whatever imbalance you need. It's a bit cheaper than replacing your crank and balancer.

i cant find a place that will do it anywhere. but i do know as long as its a 164 tooth fly my clutch will fit it. so i need a 164 tooth with a 28oz imbalance

If you could find a 351 flywheel for a granny 4 speed it would be 28 oz. Used flywheels usually aren't worth messing with on something you are going to spin over 5000 rpm. Flywheel explosions are rare, but you could lose a leg.

Look at the casting # on the crank you plan on using and do a search for that #. Or post the # here. That will say for sure if it's a 'lightweight' 50 oz or a normal 28 oz crank.
