    The balance shafts themselves....

    read the whole procedure...the shafts are all i used to do the elimanation on my engine. No special tools.

    Grab the front balance shaft, reverse it so that you are putting it into the engine block front bearing surface first, and shove it through the front bearing hole, placing the front bearing surface up against the rear bearing. Pound on the end of the balance shaft to knock the rear bearing out. Either reuse the old bearing, or a new one - if you reuse the old one or are using a new factory bearing, rotate the bearing so the hole does not line up with the oiling hole in the block, and use the balance shaft to tap the bearing back into the block. Note the rear bearing is smaller in diameter and taller than the front bearing.
