    Default torsion damper (harmonic balancer) wobble problem

    I recently replaced the timing cover and water circulation pump on my engine. After reassembling I found the harmonic balancer to have wobble. I removed/installed it in accordance with the job guide and found it to be in good condition. So is this wobble normal and that I didn't notice it before or will it damage my engine?

    If I do need a new one can anyone recommend a replacement that is cheaper than 440 for a original mercruiser part.

    Here is a video of what its doing.
