Question

Has anyone had any experience with this tool? It is a Crankshaft turning nut and looks like it also acts as a bolt for the balancer. This would make it a whole lot easier to turn the crank for valve adjustments after the engine is installed and running. I have a big block and would order part #322. I already bought one of those that slip over the crank when the balancer is removed but this won't work when balancer is back on.

Thumbs up

You could make your own using a longer 1/2-20 bolt, nut, and 1/8 inch thick washer, all Grade 8.

Screw the nut first onto the bolt, followed by the washer. Screw into crank threads by hand, let it bottom out, back up one thread, tighten the nut down holding the bolt from not turning.

Thanks for the tip. I think I'll just stick to the old bolt tho. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

I talked to the Comp cams tech and they said they don't recommend running the car with it. So I say to myself....self....that would not be worth buying!
