    What kit did you use? I hope you were able to knock that upper pin down flush before you installed the bolt/washer. I am sure you did because the pic is flawless and in perfect focus etc. Nice job!

    If you don't mind, can you please take picture of exactly bolt or part did you remove. I've never done this pinning and was wondering if I can do it myself or not.

    How do you keep the crankshaft from turning when you loosen and tighten /torque the bolt?

    Is there is a thread or two that describes the problem this is solving? I assume it's that the balancer moves on the crank? Why isn't this a warranty issue?

    If the balancer spins on the crank it "is" a warranty issue. But it requires a new engine to be installed. Most people do not want an engine replacement.

    If it spins because of mods done to the motor then your warranty is void.

    If I mod my engine, I definitely WILL pin my crank and I like this double pin method.

    I used the drill bit supplied with the kit and a air power angle drill. I removed the fan and propped back the radiator with some wood block then covered it with some cardboard to keep it from being damaged and started drilling

    I heard that you have to remove fan and removed lower rad support to make it work...

    For those of you that have done this, when installing the new crank bolt, are you installing with the bolt threads "dry", or are you applying any lubricant? I was thinking to apply a very small amount of the ARP thread lube that they supply with their fasteners....?
