I am changing the cam and heads on my 65 289. I will also be changing the damper at the same time, as it is original. I am going with a Fluidamper brand. They list 3 -one for internally balanced, one with a 28oz balance and one with a 50oz. I need the 28oz damper, correct?

Yes, you need the 28 oz damper.

One thing to keep in mind when ordering, how many bolts are holding your crank pulley on. If you are still running early front dress, you need the 3 bolt set up, some of the aftermarkets do not offer ones for the three bolt. We are considered antique

Thanks for the info.

Thumper - I am going to put in a Comp Cams 270H, and Edelbrock heads (1.90 valves).

kcode - I think I may have just ordered the wrong damper. Ordered a 28oz, but its a 4 bolt. I just assumed that I had a four bolt pattern. I have an early 65, with orginal front cover, pulleys and such. I ordered a Fluidamper. Do you know who makes a 3-bolt pattern? I'll check the number of bolts in the morning.
