Whats the impact of this?
More vibration im guessing, but is is too much? Car will be a road car, not a track.

I've never heard of there being separate balance shafts for each size of engine. Knowing Ford, they commonise where thay can.

The Competitions Dept recommended the 1500 balance shaft to be used in 1500 and 1700 rally variants. See the Tuning Guide.
I used to have a tuned 1730 motor and it too had the 1500 balance shaft.
Just to confirm what has already been suggested.

Sounds ok to me then.
I've got enough to do on that engine without buying more bits.

I've got a 1500 balance shaft in my tuned 1700 engine and seams fine. A guy who has rallied V4s for years said he always used 1500 balance shafts.

The S&R catalogue prescribes a 1500 balance shaft for a >1700 engine, so should be OK. I'm still not sure what the differences are: http://www.saab-v4.co.uk/speedball/topic.asp?topic_id=33271 I have 1700 balance shafts for sale if you insist on using one, but to be honest I wouldn't bother if you have a good 1500 balance shaft.
