Why is the harmonic balance eating into the timing cover?


On most vehicles today, the crankshaft pulley acts as the harmonic balancer. It also has the grooved outer ring that the serpentine belt rides on. Between the central hub of the balancer and the outer ring is a strip of rubber that the outer ring is pressed onto. This rubber, over time, ages and shrinks. This allow the outer ring to walk inward (or outward) of the centerline of the pulley. This causes the serpentine belt to wear out prematurely and can cause the problem you describe. You need a new harmonic balancer. It comes complete with the rubber and outer ring already attached. Check your belt at the same time to see if it needs replaced as well.

Need to replace harmonic balancer in 99 crv is there anything else I should replace at the same time?


If you're changing the balance, you may want to install new drive belts since the belts have to be removed to do the replacement of the balance. Also, check the key way to make sure it is not worn irregularly on the crankshaft.

I changed the harmonic balancer and now it is terribly out of time. Didn't touch any timing belts, distributor or the like. Any advice?


There may be a magnet on the harmonic balancer for the crankshaft sensor,

The cam and crank sensor call for spark to the plugs..

Some cars you need a Harmonic Balancer Installer Adapter,
to make sure everything is lined up and gaped..

Check the crankshaft sensor for damage from inproper install, also check the wires going to sensor,, some times the harmonic balancer are such a Pain!! to come off the sensor or wires get damage in the battle.

First remove right front tire and support vehicle with a jack stand. Remove splash guard lower portion near the harmonic balancer. Remove all drive belts. First remove the A/C alternator belt. Loosen the 14mm bolt at the front of the belt tenioner and then loosen the tensioner bolt (it is the one that stands out, you use a socket on it.). The power steering adjuster bolt with be gained from the bottom. It has a 12mm bolt head on it. You will break the jamb bolt loose first and then loosen the adjusting bolt. Pull down on the belt the help move it after you've loosened it some.Then remove harmonic balancer bolt (19mm).If the harmonic balancer will not slide off the crankshaft then use a two finger gear puller. Place the harmonic balancer bolt back in the crankshaft but do not tighten it. Leave it about a half inch from being all the way in. Next place the puller onto the harmonic balancer (one finger on each side securely press into the belt groove. The center puller bolt will rest against the harmonic balancer bolt head. Tighten the puller bolt and make sure the harmonice balancer bolt does not turn. The balancer should come off at this point.
