I pulled my harmonic balancer off the engine and saw the letter "R" stamped on the crank....Does that mean Reman? Riviera? Don't know the history of the car...Does anyone elses car have that. Anyone else seen it?

you mean these letters? mine has an "A".
no idea what i means, but i dont think it's reman or riviera. probably just a manufacturer code for assembly order.

I don't know for sure, could be a reference to the balance or some other production code.
