keeper that holds the harmonic balancer

Recommended Posts

When i got this L-37 Olds the bolt was off and there was no keeper . My parts book does not show exactly what it looks like.There has to be something that the bolt goes through that holds the balancer on. It would be the same on any 35,36,37,38 Olds or pontiac. 6 or 8 cyl.  If you tighten the bolt without anything it would just tighten against the crank, nothing to hold the balancer.

Gary, I have one from a Pontiac engine, it`s actually a thick flat washer, measures 1 9/16"dia., 1/4" thick, and center hole is 9/16", also have lock washer. Take your measurement and see if this will work. Do you have the bolt?

The bolt that came with the car, tho not installed is 7/8 inch that screws into the crank. I want to thank you for your help but it appears yours is way smaller.
