For all those about to put on a Romac be advised:
1. Brad and myself tried to heat the romac first with a butane torch.
2. Got a small type honer to try and hone down the damn thing. Brad said he heard to take .003 off.( cheap thing broke)
3. Finally just made the soup, boiled it.
4. Got it to go but then had clearence issues with the romac and the water pump pulley.
5. Had to grind off about 1/2 inch off the pulley (underdrive pulley) to clear.

Everything is fine and feels great!! Thanks brad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What kind of underdrives? Just wondering if I'll have to do this with my ASP pulley?

I have ASP Pulleys and mine hit in a small spot. I had my water pump go bad last fall and i think it warped the water pulley. It was oblonged a bit and thats where i had to grind it. Not a big deal. It is tight but it clears.

THANK YOU!!!!! Everyone makes the install sound so easy...it ain't. People that have done a stock balancer have no idea what a PITA a Romac can be to get on...it's worth it though. They just fit TIGHT!
