    if they will cover it then what have you got to loose apart from having to wait 4weeks + for your motor to get rebuilt lol

    Grease in a gearbox? Really? Sounds like a great "mechanic" with his insistence on the pulley too.

    You are the actual customer right? as the customer if you tell the person you are paying to do the work you don't want to run that pulley then they should just remove it as asked...

    There is enough supporting evidence to support the requirement for a damped pulley even on a balanced engine... balancing didn't save this fully balanced highly spec'd race engine...

    Sorry to say but TELL the mechanic to do one and refit the damped pulley

    take the pulley off dude. tell your mechanic that if he's so interested he can run it on his engine.

    Why even chance it for a week or two at the start? you'll be running the engine in / mapping, so won't be able to see it's full effects / gains or whatever it's meant to do, then if you open it up to test it, you're running the risk of the above failure.

    I wouldn't even run it up with that pulley installed dude. Not worth the risk.

    If you leave it on and it doesn't damage anything, then you can tell a lot of people I told you so :haha:

    but

    if it does damage your engine you going to have a lot of people telling you so :haha:

    One of the main reasons I joined the forum was for the experience and advice of other like minded enthusiasts and there are a lot of knowledgeable people saying change that pulley, or it is at your own peril! Your choice buddy, but i'd already have my toolbox out!

    Enjoying the build so far :thumbsup:

    can a misfire, say 2 cylinders, damage the damped pulley and reduce its effectiveness? i.e. do they suffer wear and tear?
