    Mighty Max balance shaft?

    The oil seal behind my pass. side balance shaft sprocket has sprung a leak. I don't have my manual with me today so I'm not sure how to keep that sprocket still while I loosen the bolt. I know you can remove a bolt on the block and use a screw driver on the other side. Anyone know if that's the case on this one? Thanks

    Channel lock on the Belt Sprocket, or IIRC there are some slots you could stick a screwdriver into on the sprocket also.

    Thanks, just got it off. There is a slight groove worn in the balance shaft. Anyone know where to get a repair sleeve? I've tried all the local auto parts stores. Is it by chance he same part number that is used on the opposite balance shaft?

    Go Ahead, do the balance shaft delete, then you just have to turn it 180 degrees and loose the shafts!
