HARMONIC BALANCER IS BAD. REPLACED WITH DEALER PART BUT FITS LOOSELY . WHEN START CAR YOU HEAR A METAL TICK.

The ticking does not happen when you turn it on with old balancer on it. Only happens with new one. Have tried 2 new balancers-dealer said it is the right part. Have talked to several mechanics and no one knows why it makes this noise. It comes from the balancer. Old one fits snug new one seems like there might be a mm or 2 gap making it wiggle just a little bit.
