SOURCE: how do I tighten the vibration dampening pulley on

Using a air impact gun would be quick and simple. Check the pulley, sometimes the rubber seperates from the actual pulley. Crankshft pulleys usually don`t walk off. I think it seperated. Have your service shop take alook..

What could cause my crankshaft pulley to wobble on my v10 dodge 3500

Loose or missing attaching bolts. The bolt holding the pulley and the harmonic balancer to the crankshaft may be loose too.

Crankshaft Pulley wobbles on 1997 ford aspire

make sure the pulley bolt is tight then check the pulley for being bent. if these 2 things are good then you may have a bent crankshaft at the pulley end or worn crank bearing causing it to wobble.

Pulley wobble on front of 1991 Mazda MX5 Miata engine with short nose crank

Hello, Unless Mazda forges the pulley onto the crankshaft, the pulley is usually a separate piece. You do not know which piece is bent and there may be a possibility that the pulley is coming loose attributing to the wobble.

Clearance is a big issue in working on these transverse mounted motors. You may possibly be able to get a socket on the crankshaft bolt to tighten it. Its a guess on whether there is enough room to switch the crankshaft pulley without dropping the engine cradle out of the body.

I can not say whether the crank bolt is a left or right handed thread. But with a little more research you may be able to find out. Use the Web Browser for a specific part search.

A site called is a Salvage network which links Salvage yards across the U.S. They have good contact info, price comparisions, and sometimes photos.

Loud rattling sound top of engine near or below the alternator when idling, goes away if accelerator is pressed

Hello: Remove the serpentine belt, see if the waterpump pulley wobbles/makes noise when you spin it. If thats not it then start the engine, belt still off see if noise is there also while engine is running see if vthe crankshaft pulley wobbles. Also check the A/C compressor pulley (engine off, belt off) spin it by hand and check for noise and wobble. If all the previous is ok then it could be the balance shaft front bearing and or the timing chain.

Discernable wobble/ vibration at crankshaft pulley? I can see small pieces of rubber like material sticking out, and it starts to smoke/smell as well as vibrate. Is this the correct name for this part? And...

Harmonic balancer, Yes, but the original may need to be removed with a puller, after the belt is removed. The rubber is an insulator between layers, and may be failing.

Crankshaft pulley has the wobble not spinning in a even manner

Most likely the rubber part of the harmonic balancer has deteriorated causing the twin pulleys to separate. Tightening would not help if this is the case. A replacement would be needed.

Crankshaft pulley wobbled loose an alternator belt wont stay on...

dear friend-as this crankshaft pulley is cast iron it is impossible that it could be bent so you will have to remove it and look for damage inside the pulley and on the crankshaft,if this is not repaired the fanbelt will never stay on.
