How To Balance an Engines Rotating Assembly #DarkMatterPikachu #FairmontProject
Check out Kalvinator Engines: http://www.kalvinatorengines.com Extended Version of this video available here: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/exclusive-videos/73-exclusive-videos/1731-how -to-balance-an-engines-rotating-assembly-darkmatterpikachu-fairmontproject- extended-version-exclusive-video For those of you not aware, the engine in my #FairmontProject has a name, #DarkMatterPikachu. Here's how it got that name. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euGuucHprZM In this installment of the Engine Build Series of the #FairmontProject, Kevin Frische shows us how to balance a rotating assembly. Some may know this as 'balancing the crankshaft' however, this is something of a misnomer in this case because we also include the flywheel and harmonic balancer. Honestly this is one of my favorite videos in this series as it covers something I've never seen done before. So the next time you're getting an engine build, I'd highly recommend getting your rotating assembly balanced. Especially if you're going to be using an aftermarket crankshaft. If not, it could mean a short life for your new engine. If you do opt for this service, you'll have a smooth, fast revving engine.

Inline Four - Precision Engine Balancing
Precision Engine Balancing is something often overlooked, especially by "backyard" or "inexperienced" engine builders. This video showcases not only engine balancing of a Honda 4 cyl. rotating assembly, but at the precise specification that Inline Four holds its engine building standards to. After watching this video, you will not look at engine building the same and will want the best for your engine. "Do it right, or don't do it at all!" =Brandon...out!
