Harm. Balancer Installation: Is the puller required to re-install?

Just as it says: Do I need to use a puller to reinstall the balancer, or can I use the bolt to pull it on?

I've always used the bolt to pull the balancer back on...not quite sure exactly how you'd use the puller to put it back on...

Put the balancer in boiling water and while the balancer is still piping hot, put it on the crank and zip it on with the balancer retaining bolt. It will go on easy and won't take much force on the bolt to seat the balancer all the way in.

Kents trick does work. I also put some antiseize on the snout.

Kay..IF I got the balancer on, and its torqued to spec, then is it on properly? What if the shiny circumference on the balancer isnt INSIDE the new oil seal? Will it still seal?

I'm using a Summit balancer, do I need a new bolt/washer? Stock seems small.

As others have said the hot water trick works well and you can carefully tap it on using a rubber mallet if you need to but make sure that you oil/grease it before attempting this. I didn't and it damaged/pinched the seal as it went in and I didn't realize it until AFTER the engine was completed and in the car!

Guess what...I had a nice leak and had to pull everything off and start over with the engine in the car. Not a mistake you want to repeat.

The bolt size would have to be the same to fit the threads in the crank..Try laying the washer in the damper and see if it fits?..Some of the aftermarket dampers fit very tight..The hot water trick did not work for me with my powerbond...
