    I purchased a block from someone, got it machined, and installed my crank and pistons.

    THEN AND ONLY THEN ,did i remember to check to ensure he did the balance shaft removal correct.

    Welp, he blocked off 2 bearings right but not the one that on the left of the block in the rear. (Yes this is one i need to flip. Jafro said so :))

    He also didn't give me the balance shafts, what is the easiest way to get this out so that I can flip it and reinstall it blocking the oil passage?

    Upon further examination i noticed that it looks like it was already beat out but installed in a direction that looks like it is in the oil gally but it may not be.

    Look at the pics below, what do you think?

    Where you need to block is only front side (exhaust side) two oil holes. The rear side (intake side) doesn't have any oil hole. It looks that the previous owner just left the bearing in the rear side.
