My research still has me confused. If the rubber "seal" is supposed to attach the pulley/balancer, then I need a new balancer. I want to be sure this is the case. It is in two peices. The rubber part with pulley is separated from the engine. The pulley started to fall off. Then did fall off when I removed the belt.
New balancer?
Thanks
Rich

Theres only the one bolt that connects to the crankshaft right? No it is not loose. My followup question would be, we have had squealing, I thought it was old belt but now wonder if that could have been the rubber seal?

Yes the outer pulley has separated from the main part that is still attached to engine. Is it shot or is this supposed to be two peices? It may not make sense, but maybe this is held on by the pressure of the engine while it is running? Or does it need to be replaced alltogether?
Thanks

The pulley and harmonic damper comes as an assembly and you would need to replace the pulley.
