The bolts are tight. But I tried removing it with a traditional puller we had on hand and it pulled the outer section forward. You can see the rubber sticking out the back and under hard acceleration last night it started to make the noise. I am sure the vibration and noise was the balancer slipping on the rubber under load. Now looking at it idle from the side of the engine compartment you can see it wobbling.
I called Bulltear and he said I should replace it before my trip back to Texas. He also said the stock balancers are so close in terms of weight I shouldn't have to rebalance it. He didn't carry any so he recommended summit.
$150 later I should have a new one by tomorrow.
I am confident that there will be nothing original on this thing when I'm done with it.
The only OEM items left are the exhaust manifolds, front and rear axles, brakes, power steering pump (about to be replaced, pouring fluid) , starter, and alternator. The last three are supposed to be the first things everyone replaces lol.
