    balancer install tool

    I made one of these up today and saw that I had enough thread stock for a few extra's. If you're swapping pulleys the tool greatly reduces the chance of stripping your crank threads. $20+shipping

    I had a bitch of a time figuring out that I needed a special tool besides the basic installion tool from the parts house. I made one for myself and still took it too the dealer. Got tired of dealing with it.

    you can really put it on without this tool but it increases the chances of stripping the crank threads. What exactly did you have problems with? Getting the pulley started or something?

    the regular tool from the parts house wouldn't reach into the crank far enuf to grab threads. Then I couldn't measure the difference between the crank hub and the front of the pulley for the correct tollerance. The dealer took care of it!

    that's funny, the always reliable "BFH"!!! I was worried about the thrust bearing being damaged doing that way.
