How much wobble is normal on the factory harmonic balancer?
I don't know for sure, but if I had to guess, run-out should be less than a few hundredths of an inch

However there are two dimensions the wobble could occur in, vertical and horizontal. If yours is wobbling, in what direction, and how much?

It is relying on rubber to hold 2 steel parts together, and a belt is pulling on the outer part, so there will be a little movement. However if its a visible wobble i don't think that will be within spec and should probably be returned.

The wobble was only observed from under the car. The serpentine belt looks straight as an arrow from the top.

A bit hard to tell from the video, i can see the flange wobbling on the last one but cant see if the front is wobbling as well. Does it vibrate if you rev it up?

I'm pretty sure it shouldn't wobble like that though.

Got this one:
Well, the listing is good, but it isn't quite indicative of what you paid. If we assume the current listing price of 34+14 shipped, $48 total, plus maybe taxes is better than the $76 or so I was run. However I believe I needed mine in a timely manner.
