545 Internal balance
 
Hi all, long time observer really respect all your advice. Well this is my problem, the guy who built my engine drilled the counter weight closest to the flex plate. From what I read on here everyone adds metal to the crank. So is my crank toast or is there some chance of making it work. Thanks for any and all advice.

Why would the crank be "toast"? With a typical bob weight of around 2300 grams the Scat forged crank will internally balance with some weight removal most of the time.

I Just didn't see anyone on here that drilled there crank. Thank you for your reply.
