For reference, each damper was individually balanced to each crank. The drilled holes were part of the balancing process.

I need to make a 4 bolt balancer that will work with my 290 for the accessories from my '82 Honcho.

This makes no sense to me. If I went to the dealer in 1978 and asked for part# 3196925 how would they know if I wanted the 360 version or the 390 version? So real question is are we talking about a casting number or part #

There is no such thing. All you can do is take any 4 bolt balancer and match balance it to an original 290 balancer.

what did you say? You said you want a 4 bolt balancer to go with a 290. It does not exist so you can take ANY 4 bolt blancer and have it match balanced but there no such thing as one to bolt on without first modifying it to match the 290.

The closest will probably be the 304.
