  10. Hey Rivnut, its a reproduction part.. it is basic balanced.." and recommended to be balanced with Cranc.and damper... Now i chanched the also the damper, ( rebuild one ). A bit better... but the vibration are still heavy at 1800 rpm. below and at higher rpm i thin its nearly good...
  11. Okay, here more information, cause maybe i forget something to pay attention: I bought the car ( !963 Riv Chassno. 7J1030645 ) 5 Years ago. During restoring i saw that the Trans was changed from Dynoflow into a TH400 ( Super Trubine 400 Code: 66T-446 ). i can´t remember verry well, but there were some vibrations. Then i have rebuild the engine 4 Years ago. From the feeling the vibrations were become every year a bit more. So i decided to check the flexplate and i saw that it was the wrong..to much place for the converter in the centerhole. So i bought a reproduction part on ebay, basic balanced for 401 nailhead with adapter for th400. After that i had to bring the starter 4mm away from the flexpalte cause there wasn´t space. now its ok. but the vibrations were still there. so i decided to change the converter, still no good result. now ive ordered the balancer.. hope that will bring the aspected result. Or are there more possibilities for a mistake ? Could the central schaft from the Trans been bent, because the converter wasn´t centered fine for a few years ? Please give me all your ideas and experience 1 thx to all..
  12. Flexplate is is installed. correctly, and its a new part.. I have changed also the converter.. no result.. Driveline couldn´t be, cause vibrations are also in Parkshift. I´ve bought a rebuild balancer...hope thats the solution... Do someone knows a fact, that anyone have had hard vibrations and elliminated them with changing the balancer ? thx
