our harmonic balancers are getting some age on them. why not use a band type stainless steel exhaust clamp on the oil filter , if the HB ever spins off will it save the engine ??? al

Why not just change it out for a re- poured H-B... you only do it once per car...

Also as it ages.. the elastic between the inner and outer deteriorates and changes the characteristics of the H-B

$100 one time for a Fresh one and forget it..

Would it be needed on filters rotated by the 90 degree adapter?
