Default If you have a stock h/b, what is your mileage?

Curious about how many members have a stock harmonic balancer on their car and what is their mileage.

Im an original owner, 60k on stock h/b, 2001 coupe intake/exhaust car.

Did it fail and blow the belts?

Mine is being replaced as we speak on my 98. I'll preface this with "as far as I know" it was the original and it started going at 125k.

I have 32,000 on my "new to me" 2001 and am suspicious it is the cause of my "weird idle". May get changed sooner than later; nothing else has worked so far.

Yeah, I would get that diagnosed before you start throwing the parts cannon at it.

My '01 currently has 29,000 miles on it. Given that the OE balancers are potentially trouble prone, I replaced mine about 4 years ago, "just because".

Mine has about 68,500 miles on my 1999 Convertible. Seems to be moving a tiny bit, so I'd like to replace it eventually, just need to find the time to do it.

I bought my 03 vert two years ago. I am the second owner and it had 28,000 miles on it. It was in excellent condition but I decided to do hoses, belts and all fluids.
I had already joined this forum and started reading about the HB problem so I decided to go ahead and have it changed out with all new tensioners and idlers.
My stock HB looked good but I could not feel comfortable knowing there could be a failure.
I replaced it with the plain jane Powerbond HB and ARP bolt.
Yeah, it was expensive but peace of mind is good for me. Now I don't even think about it failing.

2002 coupe with a little over 102,000 and the orig balancer. Bought it with 87,000 on it. Always had a little wobble but I understand that is normal for the most part. I marked it with some white paint a year ago just to keep an eye on it and there has been no movement thus far. (Knock on wood).
