balance of a rotating assembly
There is going to be alot of questions from me .
I am getting ready for my first v-8 engine build , I have built several L-6 motors in the past . This one is going to be supercharged so the investment is going to be pretty heavy . I dont want any mistakes , this is going to be a long build . I will start putting up pics once I have something to show .
The superchager is presently at supercharger USA for some work , he can improve the clearances and get some more boost with same pulleys
I have been looking at the Forged rotating assemblys from Scat that come factory balanced , I seen it suggested that it should be balanced agian by a engine shop . If this is necessary then why pay extra for the factory balance ?
I have wondered exactly what they do to balance the rotating assembly? Is this something that can be done with a good scale and a grinder or is it required to use specialized equipment ? I am a scale technician by trade so I can get just about any scale i want for few days to do this .
