Hi, i have a 6cly falcon (manual). The mechanic has told me the harmonic balancer needs replacing. what does this actually do?
also, at idle, there is kind of miss, would this have anything to do with it?
what steps can be taken to remove it?

cheers

it is the main crank on the bottom front of the engine if it looks to have any wabble were the fan belt is on the bottom crank replace it.
It is a 2 peice has a thin rubber pressed between the metal inner & outer the rubber dies like all things will.

even if it doesnt wabble it can still be screwed. can throw the whole engine out of balance.
