A VirtualIndian mailing list discussion on balancing has been published at http://virtualindian.org/1techflywheel.htm.
In the Theory section, a factor of 71% is cited.
(If I remember right, a longer stroke would call for a slightly higher factor.)
Since Chief wheels were balanced for heavier pistons and rods, installing Scout hardware will automatically raise the factor significantly. It would not surprise me if they fell into a serviceable range without any re-balancing at all.
