How many bush mechanics does it take to identify a 3.3 harmonic balancer....

Neither can I :) Just a tip guys when you install a harmonic balencer on a 202 best to always use a new one dont reuse a second hand one.
Also I usually bash them onto the crank using a brass hammer it saves damaging the balencer & crank.

Also DO NOT WELD it on you will root the crank.

I can't believe it took 8 posts before someone was even able to identify it as a harmonic balancer!

This is a worry :|

Yeah true. I see what you mean. I must be smoking or drinking too much. I see again now that it's obviously a balancer, but without the bottom pulley! Strange how it doesn't have a nut on it though. My 253 & 308 balancer has a nut on it.

The 202 Balencers dont have a nut or bolt unclip their V8 counterparts. The 202 balencer is a friction fit and is a prick of a thing

Thanks mate ;)

It's no wonder I thought it was weird seeing that I only have V8 motors here. I knew it was a timing cover but I couldn't figure it out because it had no nut on the harmonic balancer.

Maybe I wasn't smoking too much after all. Just never seen one :D

Oh yes, sorry V8's have a bolt, not a nut on the balancer. About an inch long from memory.
