Did my first balancer today!
So we had a car in the shop, 1987 Delta 88. Had a P/* leak, which we fixed, and i delivered the car back to the customer. About 2 hours later she called saying the engine was making a knocking noise. FIRST thing that poped into my head was "balancer". I was expecting a really hard job, considering the one i did with my boss on his '92 Lesabre was a bitch. Well this one came off no problem, took out the inner panel and the bolt came right out with the impact, and i pulled it off with my hand. Luckily we have a spare 3.8 engine in the back of the shop, so i snagged the balancer off of that (which was in perfect shape, BTW) and put that on there. Worked like a charm! Only charged her $50 for the used balancer, whereas a new one was like $130. Just wanted to share my pride.
