Question Stock Balancer Sizes??

I bought a MSD timing tape kit from Jegs. Went to measure my balancer to place the right length tape on it. I measured it to be 6 3/8" in dia. There is an option for that tape length, which is great. My concern is that I thought GM only made 6", 6.75" and 8" balancers. Is this true or is there a 6 3/8" GM? It is a stock piece that was put on by my engine builder, not aftermarket from my best guess. Any help would be appreciated as I am trying to get my motor timed the right way. Thanks!

'67 Corvette 327/300hp (base engine) used a 6-3/8" balancer, commonly referred to as a 6" balancer.

Talking Re: Stock Balancer Sizes??

thanks for the response! I thought I was losing my marbles having never seen a 6 3/8" dia. before. I must have measured tha dang thing 50 times, it's harder to do while installed in the car!! thanks again.
