How to video: Piston balancing

Finally back to working on the car again! Check out my video for some DIY piston balancing.

I was actually reluctant about the whole balancing thing bearing in my mind that my engine build is pretty much stock, but I didn’t want to give up the balancing and compromise.

I dreamed and still am dreaming about a smooth, low-vibration, beautifully revving engine. Being balanced is something that I think will suit my 4AGE.

I am actually pretty pleased with the work and managed to bring the pistons to within 0.1 grams of each other without making deep holes in the crown. Watch the video, its packed with useful info if you are interested in balancing.

All that is left are the connecting rods and the balancing chapter can be closed! A fun and educative experience so far.
