Default Harmonic balancer

Just a reminder to keep an eye on your balancer,my 97 with 40,000 miles went bad and got the front cover and the oil pan,new oil pan at GM is 750.00 found a used one on ebay for 150.00 still end up costing me about a 1000.00 if iam lucky.

I had one go bad on my 86.
It wore a hole in the timing cover.
I just JB welded it and replaced the balancer.

I hope my C5's doesn't fail. It's a lot harder to swap out .
If you do , use a new bolt.

No warning signs prior to launch? I was under the impression that a pronounced wobble and serpentine belt squeal become apparent and are the first indications that something bad is about to happen down there.

wobble in a C5 balancer is a common problem
