To remove the timing belt idler pulley remove the power steering pump first.
Thanks for the info

Thank you for the video/info!

When the balance shaft elimination is done, however, does it matter where the front oil pump sprocket (that used to drive the front balance shaft) is when the belt is installed?

Great question.

I would assume, if you swapped in a stubby shaft, you would not have to worry about setting it with the timing. However, it would be great if someone here on EVOm could confirm.

My understanding is that if you remove balance shafts, then position of front replacement shaft won't matter.

And I wouldn't use a stubby shaft because it doesn't provide enough support to resist tension from oil pump gear. Use GSC's billet balance shaft delete.
