    help....need a balancer installer

    so i sold the asp crank pulley removal was fine,,but im trying to install the oem crank pulley back on ...ive done this like 10x already im tired of using a 2x4 and mosso...who can over night me a balancer install tool?
    another thing i usually have the bolt turn in a couple of times then just do it with a impact and goes on fine...but damm alot of shavings came out with the bolt,the bolt doesnt look in good shape..it turned in like 3 times when i tried tightening it,it just slipped and turned

    im hoping its just a bolt,will get a new one.i got like 1/2 an inch to go in more.

    i want the install tool too!

    on another note anyone hear of anybody stripping the crank threads?scary to even think about ,but when my crank bolt turned in 3x stopped then tightened and slipped...i got sumthin to think about

    crank pulley issues are a bear, mine is hillbilly pinned and welded, and the bolt is welded to the pulley. good times with beer.

    I know the GM (Kent-Moore) installer is just a M16 (I think?) threaded rod with a round socket looking thing, nut and washer, thread the rod into the crank, install the round looking socket over the rod, washer, then nut. 2 24mm wrenches to hold one nut and rotate the other on the threaded rod to push the crank pulley on. I imagine you could get some threaded rod, use an axle nut socket or something around 30mm with the same type of setup and it should work fine. Got lucky when I put mine on the LS6. Tapped it on with a deadblow enough to get a few turns of the bolt and impacted it on with no issue.

    I just realized this thread was 7 months old. But anyways, I cut an old bolt under the head, welded it to another bolt, cut a length of pipe to fit over the bolt and long enough to get a good half inch of thread used a washer that was big enough to not fit through the balanced hole. Looked something like this. --::::|
