Another question for those in the know. Do I have to pull the Balance Shaft to get to the bottom of the con-rods? If so it doesn't appear that balance shaft can be successfully reinstalled because it's timed. Therefore, if I am installing main and crank bearings a BSD is a pre-requisite right? I ask because although I like the idea on an extra quart of oil, I don't like the idea of finding surprises on a limited time/financial budget.
