Balancing


  • Weight match all pistons and pins

  • Weight match all small ends of connecting rods

  • Weight match total rod

  • On V-6, V-8 and V10 engines a bob weight is made to bolt on the crankshaft rod journal. This consists of the weight of a piston, pin, pin locks, small end of rod, total weight of rod, rings, rod bearings and a few grams for oil

  • Crankshafts are spun on balancer and either weight added or subtracted to meet balance requirements.

  • Some engines require the harmonic balancer along with the flex plate/flywheel to be bolted on while balancing.
