assuming its the original engine, it would be external balance... and yes if the weight werent there it could cause that damage
once the balancer come apart, how long does it take for the internal parts of the engine to start tearing themselves apart?

the balancer could have broken the blade off the hatchet!

This is some of the things i am worried about and if some one took the weight off how long did they run it for is there any way to know if this motor was suposed to have the weight on it with out tearing the motor down
Pull the pan and find the casting number on the crank only way to know for sure.
if it has a king pin dana 60 front it self is $800 in value.
