Not sure on the BA but the Ford V8's are usually externally balanced. If this is also so on the BA then you will have to take both flywheels to a reputable place to have them match balanced otherwise your new you beaut flywheel will give you the S**ts with the bad harmonics.
So I guess what I'm saying is if you are going to replace the lot then get a reputable mob to do it for you. Then if its not right you have someone else to blame and seek restitution from.
