crank pulley wobbles a little. Can timing chain make noise like rod knsock, also does this engine have timing chain slap issues. On a standard trans is crank pulley a hamonic balancer or just pulley? Thanks for any useful information.

    We cant hear it but a mechanic needs to listen to it. With that many miles on it any moving componets are suspect! The harmonic balancer is also a crank pulley or vice versa!
