383 stroker timing tab solution help

Hello I need some help. Hope this is the right place for it.
I build a strokker some time ago.
I have a 8 inch ballancer.
I have the stock timming cover and needed to cut of the timing tab.
Got a couple of timing tabs off summit and jegs.
Non will fit they are al to big and hit the ballancer.
All are for a 8 inch ballancer. Bud it looks like its for smaller sizes.
Im starting to get frustrated mesured the ballancer a couple off times and its still 8 inch,timing tab info tels its for 8 inch.
What do you think is the trouble.

Thanks

383 is a 350 block with a 400 crank, right? You might try looking for a small block 400 timing indicator.

Just an old man's $.02

Hi, I can see from the photo your 383 uses a stock 400 balancer with the balance notch. It is externally balanced.

Just use a stamped chrome tab instead of the billet adjustable type. Try summit racing part number SUM-G3205, which is under $2 US.

It is the same as Mr. Gasket Timing Tab 4593 which is $5 US but may be easier to get where you're at

This tab will not be as accurate as an adjustable tab, but since you are using a stock balancer you need to verify top dead center because those original balancers may slip with performance use.

When you verify top dead center, paint a line from the zero mark all the way to the balancer hub, crossing the rubber bonded area. Now if the outer balance ring slips you will have a way to see it.

Good Luck!

The timing tab in the picture is the summit one I als have the mister gasket one both dont fit and they are to big and hit the ballancer tried to bend them thats not working wel as you can see in the picture.
The crank is a 400 yes and a 400 ballancer that came with the kit.
The tottal pakkage was ballanced.
I needed to cut the original timing tab because the fact the 400 ballancer is bigger.
So I was thinking becouse its a 8 inch ballancer I needed a 8 inch ballancer timing tab. Bud I think Im not educated enouff.
And no one to ask over here.
Thanks for the help so far

Are you sure you're using the correct bolt holes to mount the timing tab?

There are cheap stamped tabs for 7 inch balancers but if you have one advertised for 8 inch it should fit no problem.
