So I pulled the cracked balancer. Sure enough there is a spot on the crank about a nickel or so, where the balancer rattled against it and buggered it up. Think I can just slap on another balancer and be good to go?
Yeah, I mean drivable as is if I drop the pan, clean it out and slap on a new balancer driveable. Guess I'll find out when I put on the new balancer to see how tight it fits and row round the balancer I get is. I might just have to drop the crank and have the snout refinished.
