Harmonic balancer 226G vs 226h

Will the harmonic balancer off the G 226 work on the H 226? I am looking at buying a H 226 but it doesn't have the harmonic balancer. I have the G balancer.

226G vs 226H

I'm thinking of going to the H 226 to replace my G 226. Will the H set right in place or will some mods have to be made for the motor mounts.
