I had the same thing happen this summer, except the front bracket on the balance shaft cover snapped off. I spent a VERY long weekend replacing it (and all the while you're in there's). It broke again a couple of weeks later. I replaced it again (not too bad to do this time as I was good at it) and found that the hole in the crank side power steering pulley had wallowed out and was what broke the bracket the second time. I also ended up replacing my harmonic balancer as the vibration had misshaped the woodruf key hole with the crank side pulley. Now everything has worked well for a few weeks. It has been a long summer.
