I had my harmonic balancer reworked at Dale Manufacturing

http://www.hbrepair.com/  Hebs overhauled a few for the TR8.  My buddy had

one done by him, too.

But my car is an FI version.



Just looking at this, at the very least, the electric fans have to come out

just get the pully off the end.BB  No room at all to clear it otherwise.

 Mine was FI too and I didn't have to remove the fans.B  And the ROM does not

mention removing the fans either.B  I know it looks tight in there but once

you remove the alternator pulley from the damper assy. (step 7 in 12.21.01 on

p. 40 of the ROM) you will have enough clearance.B  However, if you have to

get an air wrench on the damper retaining bolt, that MAY require removal of

the fans.B  I did mine with a breaker bar and a socket but I had to use a pipe

extension on the bar and that barely worked.B



Good luck!

Yes.  The fan frame bolts onto the Radiator brackets.

Can you get the fans out without removing the radiator with them?B  The same

bracket secures the bottom ends of both.

Bob, is this the one?

You can take this file to a Kinko's and have them print it out and laminate

it.

Thanks Gary.



Just ordered the sleeve (just in case)

I have an ERR6490G oil seal I bought a couple of years ago at the suggestion

of this list.

Is this the correct one? I have no idea nd it does not have any specs

associated with it.



BTW, who rebuilds the balancers? I know nothing about them really.



Randy

Another option I was considering was chucking the balancer in a lathe and

taking a thou or so off with sandpaper.
