Hi, Dave, this is Randy Roberson.

info about the dampers seems pretty scarce, even at PAS.

I did find the spec to set the spring pressure: at least, on the Series C ( small eight) it should take 30-40 pounds of pull on the rim to slip it. It’s on tge parts list drawing.

My engine rebuilder is asking me for replacement friction material. I am checking the dimensions of the material used by Rolls-Royce on their damper used on their inline engines until the V-8.

happy motoring!

Randy
