Default 430 Harmonic Balancer -- FYI

From what I read, the 430 Harmonic Balancer is listed as a one piece balancer. I would assume that means no rubber insulator. I see that mine does have a very small amount of rubber between the two halves. Does that mean that it can, or should be looked at to possibly be rebuilt?

Bart,
I had mine rebuilt a while ago. Need to look up who did it, but I think he was in Portland OR. It does have rubber in between. I would hate to have it fall apart going down the highway.

Rich:

I think that this is him -- Dale Manufacturing

So, your advice would be to have it rebuilt while it's out and not take a chance, even though it might look good?

I'm leaning toward doing that.

Thanks
