    Sooooo, while tapping on the new balancer, the locating key worked its way off the shaft and fell behind the timing chain cover. Tried a magnet, but there isn't much room to work so it didn't help. Any ideas? I'm guessing I'll have to pull the cover off, but figured I would see if anyone had an easier way first. Thanks!
