Pulley location on Pontiac 301 Harmonic Balancer

I am re-assembling my Pontiac 301 engine, and did not take a picture of the harmonic balancer and its associated pulleys. there is a single pully, a double pulley(which has to go on the 'outside' of the setup) and a spacer. Does the space go next the harmonic balancer, or inbetween the two pulleys?

Haven't laid eyes on one of those for a really long time!!! If you can't get info. you can do it the really "non technical way": stand next to it and eyeball the pulleys...Especially with the belts on, it's easy to tell if you have them aligned properly (don't have to tighten them up, just enough so they are in straight lines.) You would be surprised at how accurate your eyes are!!!

What are the symptoms of a failed harmonic balancer on a oldsmobile 03 bravada smart trak 2wd engine vortec 4200. The fan clutch is really wobbly where it connects to the harmonic balancer pulley


The fan clutch is connected to the water pump. The harmonic balancer is the crank pulley. If the fan clutch/pulley the fan clutch is attached to is sloppy than the water pump is bad.

Remove serpentine belt, to remove bolt turn counter clock wise, you will also need a Harmonic Balancer pulley tool, most auto part places will rent this tool out, good luck, hope this was very helpful.

No treads on harmonic balancer. Should there be treads on the harmonic balancer because my serpentine belt came off and upon reinstalation properly I found that the belt had treads on the serpentine belt,...


the pulley on the crankshaft should have grooves in it for the belt, otherwise the belt will not turn. is the pulley broken off, get back to me. there are NO technical servise bulletins on this item,if you need more help get back to me, Thanks Ray

Where is the crank sensor located on a 1999 oldsmobile intrigue 3.5 engine???? easy to replace or not...


usually all crankshaft sensors are located right next to the main drive pulley (Harmonic balancer). As far as being easy is concerned some are not so easy as some require the removal of the harmonic balancer to get to it.. but you might be lucky Gm is pretty good at making the Crankshaft sensor accessible without removing the harmonic balancer.
