    SBC crankshaft balance needed????? Advice needed please.

    Im rebuilding a 79 305 chevy lump for my cortina project. Im at the stage now where the cranks been polished on the bigs and 10 under on the mains, my question is do I really need to have it balanced or would it be ok as is? Its not gonna be run hard just some fun and cruising. Bearing in mind im on a budget and have been quoted £275 + vat for balancing !!!
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, Bunj.

    A 305 under normal driving? No not really. IMO balancing it with the rods & pistons would probably have it better than how it left the factory so I think you'll be fine.
    1955-56-57 Chevy new and used parts always available from who I'm proud to have sponsor my '57 Chevy race car. 9.3 @ 155.8 mph / 0-60 = 1.47 seconds! Street legal :-)
