C5 Z06 crank pinning tool


Hi everyone doing the crank balancer replacement on my ProCharged Zed and found the old one has been pinned so I need to drill my new balancer.
My question is does anyone have a pinning tool I can buy / hire or recommend any machine shops in Essex.
Thanks all Tony Thumbs up

Will the "half hole" still in the edge of the crank not just act as a drill guide? The crank is probably harder than the balancer.

Not sure about that, donít wat to cock it up and damage the crank, gonna see if a machine shop can mill a ďhalf holeĒ on the balancer.
Nothing is simple on this modern stuff!

Re: C5 Z06 crank pinning tool


I think it's worth a try. You can pin the crank/balancer anywhere. So if it doesn't work just drill somewhere else. You are not going to damage the crank in any way that matters.

Personally I would have a look at making my own drill guide from a bit of scrap steel if I was that worried. But it's probably not worth the bother. I bet a drill bit would go straight in because the crank is surface hardened.

Iíll take it all on board and see how I go, Iím taking it to Thurstons this morning and if they can do it at a reasonable price Iíll let them get on with it!
The only other thing as much as there is probably room to get a drill in you will be drilling blind as you canít get your head in there to see clearly
