Hey everyone, I'm replacing crankshaft in my 2000 Pontiac Grand am se 2.4. I broke the balance shaft gear removing it from old crank so I am installing new one. Any tips to put it on the crank? I've been told to heat it or use light grease and a block of wood to tap it on carefully that didn't sound right at all. Heating makes sense but that's how the old one broke. Any tips would be very much appreciated! Thanks in advance for your help Heath
OK I found a post on the search engine about the balance shaft gear. Looks like I will have to take it to machine shop. I'm curious about installing a 2.3 oil pump. It was mentioned in that post to avoid having to replace the gear. How is the 2.3 oil pump drivin?
