the mysterious harmonic balancer

Recommended Posts

I recently sent the harmonic balancer for my 36 Roadmaster in for "restoration". I believe that means removing the original parts (springs, weights, and ?) to be replaced with silicone. I'd like to see what an original 36 balancer looks like inside and I'd like to know how silicone can substitute for the original parts. I have been able to find pictures of newer ones that didn't really show the interior. Any chance somebody has a picture? Seems like there is quite a variety of these things so a 36 or close would be much appreciated.Thanks.

The Turbo Diesel Register magazine ran a extensive article 2 or 3 issues ago on harmonic balancers.  That article had all the information on balancers, why they are necessary and how they work, their design and construction.  You might check out their web site for some interesting background.

Thank you very much. Even though few, if any of us, are likely to dismantle or fix these things ourselves, I've been curious----thanks again.
