I am trying to finish a rebuild on a 454 for my 69 chevelle. The motor is in the car just fine and I am just trying to finish up the assemble on the other "stuff." The front end is completely off of the car so I can still get at everything easily. When I put on the water pump and looked at the pulleys, it seemed as if the crank pully was out about an 1/8- 1/4 of an inch, so i decided to see if the balancer was not seated all the way. So on goes the installation tool, then a couple of turns later the tool snapped off in the crank. I don't know if I get the dumb ass of the year award for this, but now I'm sitting in the same position (pully out a little too far) and a snapped off bolt in the end of the crank. Does anyone have a reasonable suggestion.
