1996 Land Cruiser - 4 hours of trying to put the harmonic balancer back on the cam and the little half circle lock key keeps popping out of groove in cam shaft.
What is the secret?? I have to be on the 50th attempt - I am soooooo frustrated. I have the key slot positioned on the very top.
While figuring out a knocking sound this is what i found:

Your thoughts will be appreciated greatly.
Driving down the highway in my DD, a 94 FZJ80 (rebuilt engine 3 years ago) when my oil pressure suddenly drops and the oil light comes on. I get off the next exit and pull into a gas station. When I open the hood, oil is everywhere and looking under the engine I can't pinpoint the source because...
I recently noticed a pretty sizable oil leak coming from the front of the engine, at the harmonic balancer, which also seems to have a little wobble to it. No noise associated with it and the wobble is not bad, but I'd like to take care of it. From everything I've read there seems to be...

Due to an ebay bidding error I ended up with two 46mm sockets. This is the size for the harmonic balancer/crank nut on the F/2F/?F etc. $20 takes it, that's less than what I paid. It's new old stock in the box. Nice made in USA tool. 3/4" drive.
Here is a low cost 300 ft-lb DIY shop-built torque wrench - to handle re-installation of that big 30mm 304 ft-lb harmonic balancer - crankshaft bolt.
This is needed when you replace the front main seal and / or the oil pump cover plate o-ring, which are common oil leaks at the front of the...
I am looking to replace my harmonic balancer. I usually go with Toyota parts but am having trouble finding an OEM. I was wondering if any one could point me to a new OEM or had any exp with any of the many after market brands?
