    For those of you who removed the BS Gear, how did you do it? The Chilton Manual I have says to loosen the bolt while the timing chain is still connected, but the timing chain blocks half of the bolt when it is on there, so I would never be able to get a socket on it. Also, when the BS Gear is removed, is there any reason to keep the drive gear there??

    Here is a pic of the Balance Shaft Gear (and bolt) being blocked by the timing chain



    And here is a pic without the timing chain, you can see the Balance Shaft Gear, and the Drive Gear below it.

    It's been a long time, but I think you have to wedge something under the shaft and hold it, while breaking it loose.

    yeah I'd leave the drive gear in unless the double roller requires something different. I forgot that there was a gear behind that cam gear

    I tried removing the front main seal today, the damn thing shredded instead of coming free. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    Never mind, I got it free. Had to shove a pry bar in there and stand on it.

    I feel like I can't gain any momentum on this project. I started to install the double roller, but the lower sprocket won't fit! It goes on just a little bit, and then it gets stuck. Did you guys have issues when you put new timing chains in your cars?

    They make a tool that pushes it back on.

    Damn, another $50 single use tool. I need one of those like I need a hole in the head
    Gonna go broke buying tools!
    I sent an email to ZZP asking them about it, thinking maybe I just got a bad/warped part. This is what they wrote back...

    "Itís common, they are a tight fit. We normally use some anti-seize and file any ruff edges or keyways that look slightly off. Then tap on with a rubber mallet."

    Having to file down the sprocket worries me. I don't want to end up ruining it, but I probably don't have another choice. Do you guys think putting anti-seize on there is ok though? I feel like that stuff mixing in with the oil might cause problems.
