If you can physically move the damper the isolating rubber is probably starting to seep out and the damper should be replaced. That is, assuming just the outer part of the damper where the belt goes on is moving and not the whole thing.

The out of the pulley with the harmonic balancer keeps coming out causing the belt to come off I've tapped it back on a couple of times it keeps coming back out only now my car has a loud knock what could...

typically harmonic balancers are balanced and indexed to the crankshart they are bolted to. the harmonic balancer should have been replaced when it first came apart. it sounds like the the reinstallation of the defective balancer caused the rotating assembly of the engine to be out of balance. given time this will always damage the main bearings of the engine and I think this is the loud knock you are now hearing. do not continue to use the car and take it to a competent mechanic to evaluate and give you an estimate for the repairs.

Hamonic balance

Do you mean harmonic balancer? If so, a Harmonic balancer absorbs engine vibration and basically keeps your crankshaft from failing over a period of time. A harmonic balancer is a very important part of your engine and should be maintained accordingly.

Need to know the timing marks for timing belt

1.9L the camshaft gear has an arrow bumped up from it's center. This arrow lines up with a dot on the cylander head. A mirror placed in front of the camshaft gear may help see the arrow and dot. The crankshaft mark is a bump up on the washer between the hamonic balancer and the timming belt gear. This bump is lined up with the middle slot of the indicator located right above the crankshaft and between the timingbelt. this mark is tough to see with the harmonic balacer still installed but can be seen with a little mirror. Another way to find TDC for the crank is on the harmonic balacer there is a sensor ring it looks like a gear with a tooth missing. T he sensor ring should be 9 teeth to the left from the space from missing tooth. If one way doesn't line up and the other way does then you need a harmonic balancer.

Hamonic balancer

The harmonic balancer is used to absorb vibrations of the crankshaft due to the up and down force exerted by the pistons and rods.

Harmonic balancer - honda 2.2 liter

Remove the bolt in the crankshaft then use a puller to remove the rest of the balancer. Sometimes they come off without a puller.
