OIL EATS THE RUBBER.

JUST GET A NEW ONE, AND USE A NEW ONE ON EVERY MOTOR, ITS A GOOD 55 BUCKS SPENT.

you can drill and tap the outer shell and put a couple of small set screws in it.

i would have to agree one more tip you can do is take a hacksaw and cut a line on the front of the balancer that way you have a reference point to tell if it has slipped

i know that one thing that we have done in the past is to take the outside ring off and then make a homemade pointer that way it has no chance of slipping plus it will take a pound or so off your rotating weight and it dont hurt a thing unless you are spinning over 7,000 rpm all the time

go fast turn right???????
