    you are very good at spending other peoples money i see, haha... dude my company has a wholesale dealer account with the guys at BHJ and i still cant afford it at cost! Its honestly absurdly priced but as we all know they have the market cornered on this one. I wish Professional Products or ProRace would make one, A non SFI Pro Products balancer for a typical Domestic Like a SBC BBC or SBF are about $90, i have one on 1 of my 5.0's and its perfectly fine. I have a bad vibration at 2 grand cruising and honestly i hear you loud and clear on just buy the new one which i normally go the extra cash to do it right once, but this car is the daily, i just finished up a 408 stroker for my mustang and need to complete my 383 for my s10 .... dahhh too many projects for a non established 24 yr old with a low paying job!!! going crazy !!

    It is easy to see if a balancer is still in good condition. The rubber elastomer will still be pliable. If you can't push your fingernail into it, then it's no good. The elastomer work hardens into a material that resembles hard plastic and generally starts to crack and/or push out.

    ah dude... Just pulled off my water pump and said screw it im gonna go all out of the front of the motor and take off the crank pulley timing cover, balancer... basically everything i could access in 1 shot while the water pump is being done.

    as for the balancer, SHOT. still useable for now but the rubber is solid and slightly pushing out in some spots.

    and for any of you who have tore into the timing covers on these, is there a bolt hiding behind the oil filter housing? i have all bolts out including the tiny stud thru the oil pan, and the cover is still pretty solid on there.

    1 more thing, i noticed a few people are using a cloyes timing chain set... anyone have any part #'s on it for a 95? cloyes website is horrible.... im going to try to look thru their dealer catalogue at work tomorrow, def something we wont have in stock =-/

    LOL....I didn't even see in the first post that you said you didn't have money for a bhj right now. Sorry. However you should still just get a BHJ and be done with it...

    I'm sure you've seen this but just in case you haven't this is a "great deal" as far as BHJ's go.

    yeah i saw that , it is a good price considering with my discount at my job (speed Shop) thats how much i would pay. daahhhh i want one bad but its impractical. good move on their part tho by being the only ones to make it. arent monopolies illegal in the USA. haha, other companies just disregard us proud SC owners.

    There is an allen head bolt on the lower right side of the timing cover. It is hidden by the oil filter assembly. Remove it or you will break off that corner of the timing cover if you pry too much without removing it. I think it is 6mm...

    DUDE!, you are the effin MAN. i actually looked for a dorman balancer a few times but couldnt find it for some reason. this is great. And as far as durability i think dorman is a great reproduction company so this should be as good as factory. Thanks so much for posting it up. now since everything is off the car now anyway all i gotta do is wait for the balancer to come in. Ill be ordering tonight. ill let you guys know how it looks when i get it sometime next week. very excited.
