A step-by-step video tutorial showing you how to balance your pistons yourself. Done on a set of cast Toyota 4A-GE smallport pistons. The same procedure can be applied to many other pistons.

A balanced engine runs smoother, produces less vibration, is capable of higher max rpms and copes better with higher power outputs and high rpms. Balancing is especially important for high revving naturally aspirated petrol engines such as the Toyota 4A-GE.

They may be a thing of the past, but nothing beats a well-built, smooth, high revving naturally aspirated petrol engine in terms of responsiveness and sheer driving pleasure.

The crankshaft, flywheel, clutch pressure plate and crankshaft pulley are dynamically balanced – i.e. require special machinery.

Pistons and connecting rods are statically balanced – i.e. it can be done at home with some simple tools.

So why not give it a try and learn and save money in the process.
