maybe dumb question, but I don't have micrometers to measure the id of the bhj balancer, so if I just put it on and hope for the best, how do I know if it is on far enough?

Don't do it, you'll end up with a paper weight, Harbor Freight sells calipers for under $20.00. The clearances are very important and if you force it on you may " weld " it on to the crank.

gotta go with barth on this one. there are a few things you just DONT cut corners on when working on these cars and the balancer is one. my auto bird is down right now cuz of hb problems and its not cool at all. do the right thing. trying to save a few bucks now will only end up costing you a lot more in the long run.
