Hello Everyone,<BR>Need some feedback from you all.<BR>My harmonic balancer started rattling (rubber part ripped) so now I am taking it in for repairs on Monday. I thought that I would go ahead and have the water pump, crankshaft sensor and of course the drive belt replaced while this was being done ($660 parts, labor & tax). Also thinking about having the timing chain replaced since the car has 159,000 miles on it. <BR>Is all of this excessive or a good idea while working in this area?<BR>Anything else that may need attention while working on this area?<P>Thanks in advance,<BR>Alex

By all means have the timing chain and sprokets replaced with cast iron units.<P>As long as the harmonic balancer is off, it's not too much trouble to remove the timing cover. Also check out the magnet on the cam.<P>Price does not seem unreasable. Your Reatta will thank you. <P> smile.gif" border="0
