Wobbling front crankshaft damper

On 1-2 of my cars, I have a slightly wobbling damper. It doesn´t run perfectly smooth and perpendicular to the crankshaft.
Badly installed, worn in the mounting, or…?
Anything to worry about?

it is something to worry about, as it indicates possible delamination of the rubber bond between outer & inner metal rings.

If it is old, I would have it re-bonded…as per discussions on this forum

place a chalk mark from axis to outer rim…if the chalk line becomes mis-aligned, I would not drive it

Agree, if its like a millimeter or more, definitely the beginning signs of being about to fly apart. There won’t be any warning sound before it suddenly goes.
