It has a snap ring that keeps the rubber from slinging out. There worth the money if you are making good power or turning high rpms.

I know professional product uses a spacer thats the one i got on my car now, I also have a fluid dine H/B thats liquid filled and uses know spacer, the summit one i have no clue. To be SFI approved "i think" it would not have a spacer.

Get a stock replacement sfi approved balancer the ones that use spacers are crap! No belt issues using the oe style! Sfi is just a race spec.
Here's a starting pn. PIO872030

The only thing you use a 50 for is a 302-310 cuin a stroker or 351 will be a 28oz. I have seen those but haven't used one so idk can't answer that!

I've been using that part for 3-4 years.
Not a bad deal for the money.
If you need spacers just go to Ford Racing and get them.
I don't need any as I only run an alternatoer off the belt and I use a 'V' belt.........
