Default Namebrand safety rated harmonic balancer and flexplates necessary?

I need a 50oz balancer with 3 holes to bolt my vintage accessories onto a Ford Racing crate motor I am installing into my classic. Summit sells a dual drilled Chinese one for about $76. The Ford Racing one is pushing $300. I'm assuming you get what you pay for with this stuff and that anything on the rotating assembly is probably worth it. This is for a 5800 max rpm street Ford Racing 306 not a high rpm monster. Thoughts? Also looking on inputs on 157 tooth 50oz flexplates that Summit carries. Thanks!

From my expierence l would not cut corners and use cheap chinese knock offs.
Trying to save money in this area up front will end up costing you alot more in the end!
Spend a little more now and you will not have to worry about something going wrong every time you use you car.

Go to Summit Racing. They have a bunch of them available.

Summit Racing, 3-hole 50oz balancers, SFI approved

Some of the balancers listed also support 4-hole pullies, and that's the one I'd get, just in case you want to upgrade to a serpentine system later.

Generally speaking, the harder something is to get to after the motor is in the car, the more concerned I am with buying absolutely the best quality parts, regardless of price.
