At any rate, the motor seems to be okay. I figure I'll be set with a new harmonic balancer. I didn't drive it long at all in this condition. To be exact, it feels like the car has to tow like 8k pounds.
Willren: I don't think you've ever said anything positive about my engine project. And...
-I just checked the Reatta FSM. NO puller is necessary to remove the balancer. It really does just fall off. It'* made that way. How is this "notorious"? I've pulled off a number of stock balancers, and they fall off. So what?
-I will personally pay you a great deal of money if you can get an L67 PCM to perfectly interface with this.
-My bottom end is perfectly fine. 20k miles with the swap without internal engine failure nor transmission failure.
