-direction of arrow-.  
– Screw puller - T10055- into puller - T10394- and force out bal‐  
ance shaft.  
Installing:  
Note  
Due to the small amount of play between the balance shaft and  
cylinder block, the balance shaft may need to be installed chilled.  
Check whether the balance shaft can be fitted into the cylinder  
block without exerting force. If this is not the case, the balance  
shaft must be chilled before installing.  
Specified torques ⇒ page 127 .  
– Check installation position of tube for balancer shaft -arrow-.  
The lug -arrow- must be on top. It functions as an anti-twist device.  
Note  
To get the tube into installation position, it must be squeezed to‐  
gether slightly. Insert 2-hole pin wrench - 3212- in front bores of  
tube and press together. Then insert pipe with 2-hole pin wrench  
- 3212- .  
– Place new balance shaft in freezer compartment for 30 mi‐  
nutes or spray with commercially available chilling spray.  
– Lubricate balancer shaft bearing with engine oil.  
– Install balance shaft for exhaust camshaft.  
– Before tightening bolt -1-, check that balance shaft rests flat  
against crankcase.  
Note  
If the balancer shaft does not rest flat, the pipe for balancer shaft  
must be inserted again.  
– Install drive chain for balance shaft and camshaft timing chain  
⇒ page 121 .  
Further assembly is basically a reverse of the dismantling se‐  
quence.
