Yep , both F6 have destroyed the stock balancer.  The factory unit just handle high sustained RPM

 

Cracks through the keyway. 

 

I was so worried about the BF I didn't check the BA.  I reckon I cracked it on the last run.  Held over 6200rpm for a while 

 

All good now.  Both cars and even the territory has forged balances now.

BA F6. sorry for the crap focus. Material is flake graphite cast iron. Ford are so cheap they didnt even use nodular (SG) iron. Everyone needs to throw the stock balancer in the bin.

 

May as well cast it out of dog sh*t....

I gave mine plenty of curry over the past 3 years but I don't think it's cracked. I'll check tomorrow. 

 

I don't hit the limiter and mine is auto so that might help.

Nah, you just drive like a pussy..:nyaah:

 

 

Here is the difference. SG iron has nodules of graphite and grey (flake) iron has long thin slivers of graphite, which come to a point. This point is an ideal location for a crack to start.

 

Yanks cant even spell grey (gray) and they dont even know the difference between graphite ( carbon ) and lead.  Tool bags....

Mister USA. See Carbon is C and Lead is Pb, and see lead is just a bit heavier. Toolbags...

Nah I got a dozen just to be safe. Once it cracks the bolt has no chance of staying tight. 

 

Hey at least I didnt spend hours trying to get mine off, bolt unscrewed by hand and balancer just fell off....:nyaah:

Shiet, if everyone who just said they'd be keen turned up, that'd be one of the biggest WA cruises in recent memory...
