Has anybody had a harmonic balancer that appeared to be visibly fine spinning on the car but was causing engine vibrations?

I have checked and rechecked everthing so much its driving me nuts. Had it at 2 different mechanics that said they cant figure out why its vibrating that all mounts look fine. Has anybody had a balancer that was causing vibrations on a vx but looked fine in operation??

I haven't,
but I have heard other people have, and they replaced it, and said its fixed it,
But its always a gamble if it could be the cause of the issue.

Maybe check out a repair manual and see if it mentions faults, and fix remedies.

Cheers for the reply krusing yeah thinking of picking one up I can get a new one at a decent price but it would be a 4 hour round trip from where I am so just not sure if I want to make the trip or not.
