Hey guys, this may seem like I stupid question but this is my first time working on a GenIII motor. Are the threads for the balancer bolt left or right threaded?? I am assuming it is right threaded but I can't get the SOB to budge!! I have a breaker bar and a short length of pipe on it and can't it get to budge. Please give me some insight on this. Reply as soon as you can, I am doing this now. Thanks.
yep, it can be a pain. Save the old bolt. You'll need it to reinstall the balancer. You have to put the balancer on, use the old bolt and crank that bitch to 250 ft. lbs., remove it and then install a new bolt, crank it to 34?ft. lbs and then so many degrees.
