not a harmonic balancer. I've heard a harmonic balancer fail on a '98 L67 and it was much louder and only when you're accelerating. If the harmonic balancer is different on the series 1'*, I apologize, but I still don't think it'* the HB. I would try running it without the belt and see what happens. From what you said, it might not be serious damage, but lets not rule anything out...

Yes, run it with the belts off for a couple minutes on vid with a couple rev'* to 3k (quick 3k rev'*).

While the belts are off, check the SC pulley for coupler wear.

I'm not touching that car.

It'* all Victor'* baby.
He might want to sell it now...........I offered him $1,700 and he wouldn't take it. I'm glad he didn't.

The SC belt and Alt belts are woven in around that stupid engine mount. Mine are so much easier to replace.
There are a couple of belts in the trunk that the guy says he just replaced but the belts that are on the engine don't look brand new.

I thought you don't need to remove the engine mount to replace the belts? I never had to...

I will have to talk Victor thru removing the belts. I will offer to take the videos.

So how does he remove the engine mount? Undo the bracket to engine bolts or the bracket to frame bolt first ??.......support the engine first??

Hard to say if thats the Balancer or a Rod bearing...

Is the balancer tight with no cracks or play?

If so you can kiss that engine goodbye.... The Chirp from the engine is almost a dead giveaway for a bad Rod Bearing

you aren't replacing the belts, just take them off and hold them out of the way.

Sorry to hear about the early car trouble
I hope you let Victor at least borrow your tools if your not going to fix it for him
