Hello,

I am finishing up my second high CR (12.5) NA d16z6.

Question is this - I am using a d16a6 crank pulley, because it is a civic shuttle and I need the power steering and generator. That one has a small chip (missing a small chunk of metal) in it BUT has the "harmonic balancer".

However, today I got a pulley from 4th gen honda that does not have the balancer, and is therefore much lighter and without any visible damage.

Question is can I use the lighter one without the balancer? I am not even sure that the balancer from a6 is right for the z6.

This car will be still mostly a cruiser for the beach, with occational spirited driving/trackday.

I tried this once, 500 miles later the main bearings were wiped out. Put the stock Z6 pulley back on and the motor lasted until I got too greedy with the nitrous.

That small chip shouldn't harm anything, I've been running one on the Toyota since I have owned it in 2006, it had 240k and now it's over 400k so shouldn't cause a problem.
