Pulled the Kohler for my 316 as it was running rough. Honed, ringed, valve grind and new bearing in the balancing gears. Timed per shop manual, now it runs rougher than ever,hops like crazy (new mounts), backfires like a truck when shut down. I suspect the balancing gears.

This post came up a while back but the same question still irks me. If the balance gears in my 314 are a "ticking timebomb" (as some guys have described in this forum), then why were they placed in the engines to begin with and what are the ramifications of taking them out?
