View Full Version : Broken balancer

Yippie! I am starting to put my basket case back together but I keep running into "previous owner stupidity"! Okay here it goes. Any ideas on how to get the rest of the balancer off?????? Also in their infinate wisdom they broke the timing cover on the bottom left bolt. Do I have to buy a new one???:mad:

If you could get a two-jaw pulley puller in there, that might work.

I'd dremel it...just be clean about it!! :D

I had the same situation happen on mine. I used a large screw driver to pry it off just put some oil on the crank and it should slide right of with a little coaxing.

Use your imagination and try to pry it off....:p

The timing cover should be replaced.....

The PO must have missed the hex head bolt in the lower corner of the cover.....

I guess I should have put in "with tools" just after imagination....;)

Besides, you never know how far you can go with "mind control" :p

What I meant was, you could use something like a set of Channel Locks to grab the broken piece of the HB and lightly tap the back side of the Channel Locks with a hammer until you can get it to move a little.....

Then you can use a screw driver or small pry bar to get it the rest of the way off.....:cool:
