1998 Dodge Dakota

I was in an accident. I replaced the fan blade, clutch, and radiator. The transmission cooler was ok and I left off the a;/c condenser. the pulleys all looked ok. when I started the truck, the harmonic balancer started wobbling like crazy. Is there a chance it just needs to be straightened(it didn’t appear bent, maybe just loosen it up and re-center it or something)? Or will I likely have to replace it,?? and can i drive it like that?

  1. DO NOT DRIVE IT LIKE THIS. DON”T even run the engine for very long like this. You run the risk of damaging the bearing on the crankshaft. The balancer has a rubber insert between to chunks of metal that are balanced to that engine.

    You will need to replace the balancer.
