For those of you not aware, the engine in my #FairmontProject has a name, #DarkMatterPikachu. Here's how it got that name.

In this installment of the Engine Build Series of the #FairmontProject, Kevin Frische shows us how to balance a rotating assembly. Some may know this as 'balancing the crankshaft' however, this is something of a misnomer in this case because we also include the flywheel and harmonic balancer.

Honestly this is one of my favorite videos in this series as it covers something I've never seen done before. So the next time you're getting an engine build, I'd highly recommend getting your rotating assembly balanced. Especially if you're going to be using an aftermarket crankshaft. If not, it could mean a short life for your new engine. If you do opt for this service, you'll have a smooth, fast revving engine.
