Harmonic Balancer and SYE

When installing a sye, what happens to the harmonic balancer at the transfer case output? Is it reused or discarded. Any tips on removing it?

I was just told by the tech at 4X4GroupBuy.com (where I bought my Teraflex super short SYE and Tom Woods driveshaft) that it is not to be reused. I also have seen install videos that show it being discarded.


If you are not positive enough to actually finish the install until this is answered in an authoritative manner then I would call the maker and simply ask them. Most of these companies compete hard for your business and offer quite a bit of free support on the phone. But do not call the vendor. Call the maker. While I trust the guy I spoke to, I will most certainly call Teraflex when I set up to do the install if the provided instructions are not absolutely clear on that point.

You will not re-use balancer.

I got this info off of Stu's offroad site.

3 - 6mm 1.0 thread pitch bolts x 2" long, I believe fine thread. Thread them into the balancer, and tighten a little at a time while going around to all three bolts. If you are lucky the balancer will walk right off.
