Better balance makes for a smoother running and quieter engine. But, even more importantly, proper balance also maximizes the engine’s longevity by reducing the pounding that imbalance produces on the crankshaft’s main bearings.

The centripetal forces generated by any imbalance increases exponentially in proportion to speed. Double the rpms and you quadruple the force. A 2 oz.-in. (ounce-inch) imbalance on a crankshaft will generate only about 14 pounds of centripetal force at 2,000 rpm. But when the engine revs to 8,000 rpm, that slight imbalance now becomes a pounding force of 227 pounds! The resulting thrashing motion that the crankshaft experiences with every revolution can pound the bearings and main caps to death over time – and the greater the imbalance, the greater the pounding force that is being exerted on the bearings and main caps. 1
