Is it out of balance, or are you trying to balance the engine?

The only way I know of is to have weights welded on and then get it balanced.

What type of ignition? What ever you do, your going to have to distribute the weight even around the wheel. A machined ring around the outside would be easy if there's room. It will need balanced when your done.

I'd just get another one, usually you can pickup a used one reasonable off one of the pulling for sale sites

What are you using it for? stock or pulling etc? If its for pulling you can buy aftermarkets fly wheels for those. If not id get another one or have a machine shop make you a heavier one so that way it doesnt explode I dont think youve ever seen a flywheel come apart its scary!

Is the reason for adding weight to the flywheel for "pulling "?   If  your just looking for more rotating mass ,maybe you can add a large pulley on it , Not knowing what your working with ,my PK  have a pretty heavy pulley mounted on the flywheel side and a very heavy pulley used for the drive on the output.  Unless your in a stock class and are trying to bend the rules by making it look stock lol
