Jonathan Kingston says:

Is there any computer stuff that need to be done after replacing the balancer? or is it just a replace and drive type thing?

Jean-François Paquin says:

Good_Things_To_Know says:

What tool did you use to install it? please

Tbone Jackson says:

Thanks for the video. It helped me alot.

Innovative Intelligence says:

Was this Causing the Engine to Squeak , I just replaced my alternator and all the tensioners and other pulley's the squeak is still there. It is a Manual Truck with no AC , I am thinking it has to be the Harmonic balancer slipping and squeaking.

Stephen Dee says:

Thanks for taking the rad out to make the video. It's about a million times easier to see everything thanks to that!

Robert Lipscomb says:

Where can I find the balancer installer at or is their any specific one for a 4.3 Vortec?

Jonathan Adams says:

This must have been a v6 because the 5.3 and 6.0 v8 are one main bolt….and require a different puller…

U.S.A. says:

Great video.. thanks… I see the same oil leaks I have on my 4.3, front cover and front crank seal?

Jim Wimmers says:

why did you replace it?

Les Daniell says:

4.3 V-6 ? ? ? How about a 5.3 V-8 I didn't think they put the V-6 in those year models

ICU81 2 says:

Is this pretty much the same idea on a 08 6.0?

mictjustin says:

My 08 Silverado is a pulley without bolt holes. I think it’s welded.

DJ HiNRG says:

5:27 Thank you! Now I know why my belt wasn't inline correctly. The mechanic didn't used strap wrench to hold the crankshaft from moving when tightening it and the result the crank pulley wasn't torqued

Mr. NUMBERS says:

These trucks have 5.7 that's not a 5.3????
