I started getting screeching noises at the crankshaft pulley, so I would tighten the belt reducing the noise
Today it failed completely, I heard a clunk and something fell of the fron of the engine, then the steering got hard, I was expecting to have a broken belt... but no! the crankshaft pulley is gone !! I only have the hub left
So ... the pulley was dropped somewhere in the highway
Luckily this happened only 5 min from home , it took about 30 min to finish the drive home, I was being careful not to overheat the engine
oh well tomorrow I 'll look for the part
there is a pic of the hub on the engine ... no pulley
heh I bought one from a guy on here for 50 bucks. It takes about 30mins to do the repair correctly.

I noticed my harmonic balancer wobbles alot is this a future problem?
YES. FIX IT NOW. If the balancer separates (like it did for the OP), it can trash your radiator, or your timing chain cover, or other under hood components. Worst of all, you CANNOT drive it very far with this part missing.
The original poster was lucky to get his to a place where he could repair it.
WANTED--MJ Comanche to restore. Must be solid, (relatively) rust free chassis. Send me a PM if you have a line on one that is for sale.
Went to autozone they have them for $56 bucks, o'reilly's $54 bucks. If I remove electric fan and the big fan that should give me the room I need to work? Also gonna do loan a tool at autozone for harmonic balancer puller anything else I need?
