I started my new motor today and it had the loudest squiky sound. I noticed that the balancer was not in all the way. About a 1/4 off. Could this have caused such sound?
The crank should have very little end play in the thousanths of an inch. The balancer should be installed until it bottoms against the bottom timing gear.I installed it but you can tell is out a quarter inch because you could see the dark mark created by the exposure outside the seal.
My #1 question is should the crank have no play at all once installed properly or a slightly movement must remain at all time. What I mean is that should the crank be solid front to back once installed. Right now I can hold the balancer and push front and back and have a slight play (very minor of about an 1/3".
If I install that balancer correctly what should I expect. No movement period.

If it had a manual behind that crank then it could still have the pilot bearing in it that you speak of. It is in the small hole behind where the torque converter goes in the back of the crank and won't hurt anything.Yes I have a sway bar but non of this has being touched. Let me ask you one thing. The block was set for manual tranny th400. There was this thing inside the hole where converter sits inside the block which I did not remove however converter is sitting proper since I did not move it much to put bolts. Could that be causing a problem?
GEEEZ, I HOPE NOBODY WAS LIKE THAT TO YOU WHEN YOU STARTED OUT!Serious? You have bigger problems than a noise. Put the tools down

Yes sir, this is what we need to know before any more info.Bottom line, if the crank still moves as much as you say, the motor should come out to be inspected and corrected.
