Re: 67 327 Harmonic Balancer Issue
If you have a low horsepower 327-210HP, even 4-bbl-250HP or whatever the value may be, the h/bal is just keyed with a press fit onto the snout. Yes, as Steiner mentions, the elastomer does dry rot or deteriorate.
Could be the key has broken and the press fit has given way.
A new h/bal and key would work, but also, a h/bal bolt with washer, several companies market them, as the snout keyway is pretty strong, but the bal keyway is toast.
Install the new h/bal, pulley(s), and follow up with the bolt and torque to about 60-65 ft/lbs.
