    Harmonic balancer on it's way out?

    Well, it's not really a question, I'm pretty sure the harmonic balancer is on it's way out (I'm sure the rubber shouldn't be bulging like that!) So it's a matter of needing it changed, I've fired a PM to IBW for a price for the job, but I'm just wondering how much longer it will last? The...

    Harmonic balancer (crankshaft pulley) recall in the US on M112 V6 engines.Why not UK?
