That is a good point, but wouldn't be an issue with a timing cover seal as the sealing surface is laying on the workbench (on the balancer). A light tap with a center punch helps keep the drill in position.

With such a small bit, I would be concerned about the bit going in too far, having it catch on something inside and snapping off because you know that once you break thru, that drill is going to want to go in full depth. I would use a drill stop or a piece of tape limiting the depth, to help prevent such a disaster from happening.

Good point Kevin. I work on too many different cars. I forgot that the sealing surface was the OD of the hub on the backside of the balancer.

Thanks for catching my mistake.

Ok, I had a chance to remove the radiator and the grill.
I’ve got a puller and will try to remove the harmonic balancer soon.
Ideally I’d like to try to leave the timing cover on.I ordered a speedy sleeve and front seal from Rock Auto.
Thanks again for all the hints and tricks!

If I remember correctly, the speedy sleeve should have come with a compound you use to attach the sleeve and that is all you should need to use.

With the depth of those grooves, I would fill them with JB Weld first, then use a non-hardening sealer as specified in the instructions. I used some type of Loctite, but can’t remember which one.
