Balancer Shaft Question

I just recently put a new balancer belt on my 98 base model. Whats the worst that could happen if you dont align the gear in the correct spot and attempt to drive on it not relizing it.

Re: Balancer Shaft Question

they won't be aligned properly and cause an excessive amount of vibrations in the engine, possibly to the point where screws/bolts start backing out. and if they're motor mount bolts......



thats the worst

exactly, if you are unsure about it, then tear it back down and recheck it. the time spent on that is worth the piece of mind knowing that its right.

Re: Balancer Shaft Question

do it right the first time!! i didn't and i had to tear into the ****er 3 times. set the motor to TDC. For the front BS gear there is a arrow on the gear that lines up with a arrow on the block.For the rear you have to pull out a maintenance bolt on the back of block(about 1 inch over to the driver side an 5 inchs above the oil drain plug)stick in a skinny long screw driver in there. Spin the rear BS gear till the screw driver goes into the shaft. Leave it in there, put the belt on, everything should still be lined up.Pull the screw driver out, put the bolt in. button everything back up and your good to go.

If you need anymore info on it just PM me or something.

Re: Balancer Shaft Question

JUST LEAVE THE BELT OFF> free up some rotating weight on the crank and free up some ponies... you wont break anything. so what a minor vibration big deal.

Re: Balancer Shaft Question

quick question, not meaning to thread jack, so can you just leave the belt off without getting that kaizenspeed balance shaft delete kit? is there any negatives to just leaving the belt off instead of using kit?

Re: Balancer Shaft Question

The only negatives to disconnecting anything dealing with your balancer shaft belt is that if the crankshaft is not balanced correctly from the factory, it could, over time, cause a larger amount of wear and tear on your engine in the form of your bearings. When the bearings go, metal to metal contact ensues and ta-da! no more engine! It's a toss up as to if that's going to happen or not.

If you take out the balance shafts and put in the balance shaft removal kit, you'll save 10lbs though off the engine, and the H22 is already a pretty heavy engine for a 4 cylinder anyway...

Re: Balancer Shaft Question

well if you just remove them with the kit then you are in the same boat as not having a belt and just leaving the BS in. so save the money and just remove the belt. its cheaper and have the same affect. but gain wont be really noticed so just keep the belt on the make the motor quieter.
