Thumbs up It's smooth again!!!!

Update, removed the old harmonic balancer in two pieces! The end that rides inside the seal was broken about two inches from the end. The woodruff key had sheared the keyway in the balancer. When I saw the keyway damage in the balancer my first thought was Oh God, let the crankshaft be ok Lucky for me it was! Installed a new oil seal, key and balancer. Not only did the new harmonic balancer stop the vibration, the engine idles and runs smoother than it ever did. I will check the timing tomorrow with a timing light to make sure its right on. Unfortunately this engine has the old distributor ignition system. Thanks you all for your comments!!!
