CRANKSHAFT HARMONIC BALANCER REPAIR & REPLACEMENT MELBOURNE
A harmonic balancer is known by many other names as crankshaft damper, crank pulley damper, vibration damper or torsional damper. It is connected to the crankshaft and reduces the engine vibration and acts as a pulley for the drive belts. The harmonic balancer is composed of a mass and an energy dissipating element. The mass resists the vibration and the other element functions to absorb the vibrations. The balancer fails majorly due to excessive heat, salt deposition, ozone deterioration, general wear & tear and stress on the energy dissipating element (a rubber insert). Usually, a problem related to harmonic balancer indicates the need to replace the balancer, but the problem can also be associated with a damaged rubber insert or the bolt which holds the balancer in place.
