Now about the 289 hipo.This IS  a different balancer altogether.Why? The 
true 289 hipo had a thin add-on counter balance  added to the front of the 
crank,behind the timing chain,the  harmonic balancer is thicker and has a 
different part no(C5OZ-6316-C) BECAUSE IT REALLY IS DIFFERENT.
So no you really SHOULD NOT  use the hipo balancer unless you use the counter 

You cannot use a double roller chain if you use the hypo counterweight.  My 
machinist plugged my hypo damper with extra weight (to make up for it), and I 
use both the hypo damper and a double roller chain.
