    Does it wobble or do you have problems with it throwing belts?

    Will be eventually. First it'll usually start causing belts to get thrown. Then it'll cause greater problems. Is this on your 69 or 99?

    you dont need to its just to do a cam requires the same steps you'll need to go through when replacing the balancer
