There is a weight on the back of the Balancer.. But there is a roller bearing in the balancer, the Rubber part of the balancer absorbs the shock of certain loads being placed upon it, it will flex say when the compressor turns on or off.. The rubber has a certain amount of strech, I think the correct term is Vibration Dampener...

The rubber part along with the belt surface or outer part of the balancer can move, there is a stop built into the balancer to keep the Belt surface from free wheeling, so when that rubber starts to crak up you get a hideous clattering... I have a few times in the past seen this missdiagnosed as a bad rod...

Have fun with that replacement.. The puller and air tools will sure help

How crucial is it that the flywheel is held in place? Have you guys been able to pull the balancer without holing the flywheel?

How the heck do I get to the flywheel if I need to hold it?

plus:

I tried to move the bolt with the belts still on, and the HB just turned.

So, how do I get to the flywheel?

That would depend on the Balancer bolt.. I have seen some that I hit with a good impact and it took the bolt out after a little struggle.... Others I have actually had to hold the flywheel and use a good 1/2" ratchet with a jack handle on the end for more leverage..

Not sure if this will give you an idea, This is a pic from when I replaced the starter on the 91, your 92 will be identical, I had the starter off, and that means the plastic cover plate was removed, should have 3 screws iirc...


Have to find a good way to hold the flywheel.. In the past we have shoved a large screwdriver in there and held it in place( Hands far from the flywheel ) while the other person tried to loosen the HB bolt..

Black cover is 2 10mm bolts.

Toast and I did it in a parking lot. I'd suggest 2 people, one for the flywheel and one on the harmonic bolt. In the end, we used the dangerous method of the starter to loosen the HB bolt.

So, where do I find the flywheel?

Top or Bottom of engine bay?

Bottom... to the driverside of the oil pan. To be more specific, between the oil pan and aluminium of the transmission. That is where the black cover is located. Once the cover is removed, you will see the flywheel .

John, do you remember where you were holding the bar under the driver'* side of my 95 when I did mine? That was my flywheel you were holding.

Alrighty, got to the flywheel, we're getting that to hold.

We tried an sir impact wrench, that didn't budge it.

Breaker bar, no luck.

Now we're trying a breaker bar with a brass bar extended off of it.

This bolt isn't reverse thread, is it?!

Nope, its a right hand thread... There is a lot of force on that crank bolt
