    Is this dangerous?

    Hey guys, I'm swapping a 5.9 Magnum into my Dart. It's a low mile motor that sounded great and ran strong so I'm planning to drop it in with just a few new bits and pieces (oil pump, timing chain, etc). I pulled the harmonic balancer off today and here's what it looks like. I'm assuming this...
