View Full Version : Broken HB

08-05-2003, 11:58 AM
Hello everyone, its me again. Last episode my 89 died on the freeway. turns out the crankshaft bolt (securing the balancer) sheared, then the balancer sheared right where the alignment key ends. I removed the bolt with an easy-out. Now I have to get the chunk of balancer off the crank. Is this possible without pulling the timing cover? I already have the front seal off and as far as I can tell, I wont be able to grab the piece from behind. :mad: Thanks..

I bet it looks like this. :) I use a chizel and a hammer. Just made a grove and worked it out then used a pry bar when I could get behind the broke piece. Double check the crank sensor because the hb tore mine up pretty bad.

Others have had some luck with drilling and tapping some small screws in the remaining hub to pull it
