The outer ring of the balancer had sliped about 50 deg and thats where the counterweight is. put tghe new one on this afternoon and its a different car. i still dont know if this has fixed my startup problem yet lol

I seem to have fixed it.
The new harmonic balencer helped alot. made it easyer to start and i think the main thing was my Air filter. was pretty clogged up. just dropped in a K&N panel and seems to start heeps better now. also has heeps more go especially at 4000+

so if all else fails check the realy obviouse stuff first.

Thanks very much everyone who posted. you have been a great help.
