It'* nice when something is "obviously" broken. Makes it easier to diagnose.

I take it the balancer'* metal vanes are still nice and straight? It was a little hard to see for sure in the picture. If those are off much, they could take out the new sensor. You probably would have noticed that though.

If you can't find a torque wrench of that capacity, you could probably just use the universal German torque spec.: Gootenteight.

Just kidding. Proper torque is preferred.

Yea, it is nice. I am also just going to use the balancer off my other motor because of the chance of 1 spine being bent. Might as well use it.

As for the torque wrench, the brother is suppose to be bringing me 1 up when he comes after work. Maybe like 2 hours or so, and i can atleast get it back together. Then i have to do the serp belt. Then monday morning bring it into town to have that broken power steering bolt drilled out.

Make sure the balancers are the same. I believe they changed over the years.

Checked the balancer and they had some differences so i just put the original one back on.


CAR IS RUNNING AGAIN. Only problem is a slight grinding noise from the dust sheild behind the HB. I am sure if it isnt all the way on or what. We tried pushing it on more but it seems to be back as far as it will go. But i will finish all the little things now.

I want to thank all your guys for your help and what not. Now i can move on to fixing the KR again

Belt is on, and everything is good. The grinding noise is gone. I took a screw driver and hit the cornor (looking at the dustshield throw the wheel well, on you left hand side) and it popped on the rest of the way.


Only thing now is to get that powersteering bolt tap and died. And get a new bolt in there, but besides that everything is great.

Good to hear.

Somehow I knew about that dust shield... Local GP guys had that issue.
