bowtie engine balance
I need to know if the balance of the bowtie (casting number 14044807) is internal or external
Tall deck CNC machined BBC. This is the casting number for the block. Balance depends on the crank used. Look for heavy metal in the counter balance to get clue. 4.25–4.5 stroke will probably be external balance. this is usually a boat block.
The only external balance I know of is the small block 400
All factory 454 BBC are external ballanced.
