I have an  1990 Mazda Miata. I found another harmonic

1.6 engine cross check part numbers 323, to Miata, But if it was mine I spend $40 dollars for a new one, after 16 years they tend to come apart.

Thanks. I'm thinking the smart route is just buy a new one!

Buy a new one as it is not worth the risk.

Risk is extremely low if all measurements are identical. This isn't rocket science...use it!
