It needs to be done at a machine shop. You don't balance the clutch disc and pressure plate. You balance the flywheel with the pressure plate installed.

It is not a necessity but it is pretty...

The water pump and pulley assemblies are directly interchangeable for and F100. In other words, a car pump and pulley will work in the place of a truck pump and pulley. The only thing to watch out...

Unless you have a really short rear gear, you are nowhere near a redline at 65mph or even a little above. 65mph should be about 3500-4000rpm.
