Default v 10 upset

I traded my quad for this truck knowing it had a broken crank so no big deal it still ran. I started pulling the engine just got the radiator and core support and tried to pull the broken part of the crank out of the front cover. It wouldnt come out I thought that was weird. I then realized the crank wasnt broken the center bolt for the pulley backed out. I was dancing a freaking jig in the garage thought i was the luckiest man alive haha. The balacer was toast but i was thinking maybe there was a chance the crank survived it didn't look bad. Well as it turns out picked up a balancer and the crank is toast bad news. I already purchased the reman crank kit, knew i had to do it but it sure bummed me out thought i was going to get lucky. So back to pulling the engine
