I think that the damper on my 84 euro 300d n/a looks different than the damper on my 79 300d n/a U.S version. It is too dark to check right now, but I remember noticing differences... I vote for seized or dragging bearings on accesory belt driven components for example a/c compressor and alternator bearings as a possible cause for balancer problems. In my case a/c compressor was tested by hotwiring the clutch to come on with engine was seized and stalled the motor when we touch the wires to power. The next day on the way to work the damper failed.
