...To have it rebuilt and back in your hands two days after you send it:

Photos below show the Oldsmobile 3.5L V-6 harmonic balancer in process of being rebuilt.
...This is the way we usually receive the Olds 3.5 L harmonic balancer; in two pieces after the harmonic balancer ring has fallen off the engine!
..As long as the metal parts are in good condition, all that is needed is for a proper rubber rebonding to restore to better than new condition.
...The factory did not use the high temperature quality rubber necessary for long service; we however use a modern 400 Degree F. (very expensive) rubber specially formulated for harmonic balancers and tested in use for over thirty years, thus our life time rubber bond guarantee!
..,.In this photo you can see how the factory machined the parts with a smooth curve (convex surface) on the hub of the harmonic balancer with a corresponding inside curve (concave surface) machined inside the harmonic balancer ring that has the fan belt grooves machined in it.
..This design complicated the rebuild process in that the parts must be accurately centered into position after the bonding surfaces are prepared and chemically primered and before the new rubber is poured into place to cure.
...Here your harmonic balancer is prepared and ready to be fixtured for rebonding. In this special heavy duty ball bearing fixture I am carefully centering the hub casting to within 0.0005" of perfect center. At this point it is locked into positon.
...Next two special beryllium copper wound springs (that we make) are inserted into the rubber area. These springs remove static electricity that may build up on the harmonic balancer ring due to fan belt flexing. This eliminates the static electric charge can make radio static as it jumps to the hub.
....Next, the harmonic balancer ring is carefully cented with the dial indicator.
...Now everthing is ready for the rubber to be mixed and poured into the waiting rubber gap.
...Here the new high temperature rubber is in place and chemically curing (usually overnight).
...In this photo, the Olds 3.5 L V-6 harmonic balancer is cleaned up and painted...almost ready to be returned to you.
..All that remains is a final re-balance and then carefully packing for safe return to you...
...We hope we can be of service...
