If the balancer is installed with the proper tool you just keep turning the hex bolt until it comes in contact with the machined shoulder of the crankshaft.....you can't press it on any further.

Unfortunately some guys still use the BFH and a piece of 2X4 and slam away.....still until you bottom it out on the crank....not the preferred or proper way to install mind you, bad on the thrust surfaces.
