Getting the Wheeling Fever
That is a cool read. My current problem is still the balance shaft bearings being tight. I've put a second set in now. I even spent cash on a proper bearing installer. they went in cleanly. but are tight to turn and can barely do it by hand. thoughts? will they settle in or am I doing something wrong.

the clearance on the journals spec out. and the bearings are plenty loose outside the block but get tight when pressed in.

Need a Spot
Canadian,
I'm probably going to do the same thing if I have to pull the engine do address the flywheel problem. Did you source your rebuild parts on RockAuto or did you use a kit? I've never done a 2.6 before. How did your bearings and crank look? Did you need oversized bearings?
