On a fluidamper or similar type is a viscuoius fluid inside them,do not think you should heat that up. On a stock balancer there is an elastomer band between the two pieces.It will destroy itself after a few years,do not heat it up and speed up the process.That is probably the reason why the old timers cringe.The tool works great,pulls the balancer on straight and easily.Even with the Fluidamper I run on my car where the tolerances are a little tighter than an OEM replacement it went on smoothly.
