    What does a broken balancer look like?

    As part of my troubleshooting, I took off the balancer to inspect it. The rubber looked pretty good...some small cracks, but absolutely no clear breaks, flex or movement. To me that seemed like a pass...but does anyone have a picture or description of a broken one? Sorry to start new threads...

    Hey all. I've tried searching many times and can't seem to find anything that matches the problem I'm having so I'm going to chance getting flamed for not researching first and go ahead with a new thread... I bought an 89 XR-7 for my son. Car is a little rough, and it sat for years, but I only...
