Put the balancer in a big pot of water and boil it on the stove for 20Minutes.
Install using oven mitts. Goes on easily.

|Silver Surfer||I read an article where a dude was having erratic timing. It was caused by either a cheesy nylon thrust button or a worn out aluminum one. As the cam would walk around, the cam gear altered the distributor gear quite a bit.|

|eric32||yeah that is a good idea as I might get a regular size bolt head to screw into the crank and let it dig into it so as not to dig into the cranks itself and the one who posted that is a genius as I never thought of that before. Mine never did do anything to my crank or threads but it was not a hardend piece cause it was brass color and after 5 times using it was done and I had to buy a new one. That is what you get with cheap stuff but I don't work on stuff for a living so I don't always need high dollar stuff.|

|bygddy||Yah, they were out if stock on the new ones, I may just put a bolt that's too small in the center to thread, but stops at the head, that way I have something there to run it against.....|

|eric32||Looking at your puller there should be a piece that goes on the end for the puller to pull on and protect your crank snout unless its different then my cheapy one that I got at a autopart store for like 15 bucks. It came with a brass piece that goes on the end of the puller and it is a gold color so it had to be brass as it got worn out after using like 5 times and I had to get a new one. That looks like a solid piece and that would be harder then the one I used and that could eat at the end of the snout but I don't know for sure as I have only used the one I got. I was worried about my threads too and I like the idea of using some washers for future use.|

|eric32||Hello since my balancer was new and did not have any groove on the balancer I just used the same crank seal since it was new as well. As far as your balancer puller I don't know how that thing is eating up your threads as mine is similar but cheaper made but it does not go into the crank threads itself just spins at the end of the snout but it never touched any threads and mine was off several times. My piece ended up getting worn out so I had to buy a new one. Mine was brass looking so it had to be somewhat softer then maybe a good quality one. I like the advice on here by using a washer or a nut for it to rid up against and in the future I am going to try it that way in order to protect everything.|

|bygddy||The center of the balancer is the same size as the crank bolt...anything bigger and I'm just pushing against the balancer and going nowhere.....hmmm|

|68NovaSS||Just put a large nut between it and the crank snout for a quick fix to save the threads.|

Princess auto tommorow......they have them for $20.
So hopefully I can get it apart tommorow night back running for Thursday.

|bygddy||OK, so nope, tried it anyways, just starts chewing up the threads on the snout, stopped, cleaned up threads before I really hurt anything, but now I'm stuck...|
|06-18-2013 08:00 PM|
And this is what I'm afraid of galing the threads. Now this balancer is brand new. So maybe it will come off alot easier then the last one I did. But still concerned tightening this into the crank snout
