Hey Yall,
Just wanted to say hey to all the other car nuts like myself and also maybe get some help at the same time. I have added a new thumper cam to the SB 350 in my 69 and I am at the point of adding my new harmonic balancer. I used the bolt tool that pushes the balancer onto the crank, I didn't want to hit it with a hammer, anyway the balancer has slid on the crank pretty easy but it has gotten fairly tight but it feels like I could keep turning the big nut thats on the bolt that pushes the balancer. Will the balancer just bottom out or is there a distance from the balancer to the block that I could measure to see if it needs to go any further. I am afraid that im going to mess up the balancer or the crank if I push it too far. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to the Club, Mike. As for the balancer, keep turning the big nut until it stops.

The balancer seats against the crank timing gear.

Welcome to Team Camaro and like Everett said, tighten it down until it stops at the crank timing gear -- you should also be able to turn the motor over by hand at that point as well
Hey Doug, Thanks for the advice!! Real nice 69 you had and also your project.
Mike
