Default 4 X 4 Balance Shaft

I got this truck free cuz previous owner thought engine needed to be replaced because of a bad rattle. I diagnosed it as a timing chain issue. I pulled engine and started taking stuff apart and sure enough the right side chain was not broke but cassette was mostly gone and the tensioner was shot. I ordered a new timing chain set with the balance shaft components. When I got the timing chain cover off there was no balance shaft. This is the original motor. Is there not suppose to be one? Was there a change to this motor during that year? Any ideas?
