Yes you need a puller about $40 from auto one to remove ballencer. You may as well replace timing chain etc as well. Don't drop the bottom guide into sump...
Not crank case just front timing cover..

I assume he's talking about the timing chain dampner on the right hand side, the one thats attached to the head. If thats the case you don't need to take off the timing chain cover, just slot it into the chain while the head is off, and then put the head back on.

Re: Fixed Damper, Help!

The LH onre (if you are sitting is the driver's seat) is the one that is usually broken when removing the head (I have done it myself). As it slots into tangs in the timing cover you can't just slot it into the chain. I have a friend who rpairs and rebuildsengines for a living and he said they usually just remove the top piece and leave the larger part in place. I actually bought some expensive loctite glue made for the type of plastic it is and it held until I rebuilt the motor and replaced it. However, I was later told if it broke again or came unglued there was a risk it would catch in the chain and taking the top broken piece out is the safest way if you are not going to remove the timing cover to put a new one in.
