It really depends on whether the crank snout is worn, causing it to be loose, or the balancer is loose because of the female part of it being worn or cracked. If no signs on either are present, get another balancer to slip on the crank snout, and see if the problem still exists. Unless...he[mech.] is talking about end play in the crankshaft [in and out movement of the crank] from the thrust bearing internally in the engine, which is totally different, and also another problem.
