Harmonic Balancer

Started getting my truck ready for Uwharrie this weekend... And when I climbed underneath, I noticed that my Harmonic Balancer had a small chunk missing from the section by the serpentine belt. Driving it, I had not noticed anyting different...and I am not sure how long it has been like that.

I am 99% sure that I will change it before doing anymore driving...

Has anyone else had this problem? Does it happen with age? Abuse?

Is it common?

My last major trail ride was in Telico in November.

Anyone know the best place to get one, other than the dealership, RN or AB?

Are their performance parts that would be better?

I haven't had any chunks missing but when I did my heads I found that the gasket was trash and had scored the balancer as well...

Something to check for
