Re: Balancer Issue - bolt or no bolt???
I dont see what the problem is here ? First off all, you should not use the boolt to pull the dampeer on with, you are very lucky that it did not strip, or the damper is too loose. There is a tool that screws into the bolt hole to install the damper with, that is what should be used. As far as using the bolt goes, if the crank has been drilled and tapped for it, then by all means use a bolt. It certainly cannot hurt anything. All Chevy dampers are pressed on, the newer ones also have bolts... what does that tell you .. probably a good idea to use the bolt too.
