Smile New Harmonic balancer....

Think it was time to change the old one.. Got a Fluidampr to replace the old one .So that I could get 92ft# of torque I wrapped an old serpentine belt around the new Fluidampr and clamped it with a pair of vice grips so the motor wouldn't spin Push one way Pull the other... Worked like a charm

Nice job! I would have never thought to do it that way with the Vise-Grips.

Good job! That was quite ingenious using the old belt and Vice Grips!! You get an "ATTA GIRL" for that one!! Your old balancer was in pretty rough shape. Now you don't have to worry about that for your trip!
