Wow!!! I don't think I would put that much faith in gorilla glue. I had the same problem and had to replace the hb pully. My belt ended up slipping and jumped a few teeth causing the car to be badly out of time. Fix it before that happens.

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.

The biggest wheel under the belt is vibrating ad making alot of noise. How long do i have before i break down? and is it the harmonic balancer?


by biggest wheel under the belt are you talking about the lowest wheel on the motor at the bottom of the motor then it is the harmonic balancer the rubber dampener material between the outer and inner metal balancer is coming apart.you should get this replaced as soon as possible.if it separates completely it can cause alot of damage to other components and cost more money to repair the damage

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.

Cooling fan hits the harmonic balancer. Took the fan blades off and the belt still runs off the pulley. Something seams to be miss aligned but I cant see what it is.


Your harmonic balancer is coming apart. The Balancer has rubber ring that eventually wears. I also know that when people try and use WD40 on the tensioner pulley because the bearing is squeeking the WD40 sometimes works its way to the balancer or accidently sprays on the balancer. The WD40 eats away at the rubber. You will need a removal tool to do this. Where you pick the balancer up they should have this.

it looks like this

My crankshaft pulley wobbles and makes a weird noise on my 93 prizm lsi


Hi there;
Somethimes this happens over time. It is usualy caused by an oil leak at or above the pully causing the rubber in the "hamonic balancer" which is part of that pully system to fail. If you don't have it repaired you will find the pully will wear through the cover behind it. So be sure to get it repaired.

Hope this helps, Good luck.
Farrout.

How to install power steering belt on 97 geo prizm


Most likely the belt and pulleys are shiny if you look at them, replace the belt, while you have the belt off try and clean the glaze off the pulley groves, this will make the new belt "grip" better and avoid slipage.
