Harmonic Balancer Question

#1

Post by TurboKota » 9 years ago

Can I fit a 280Z aftermarket harmonic balancer on the LD if I delete the power steering pump?

Like this one?

My understanding is that the harmonic balancer and flywheel on the LD28 are unique to the engine, and necessary to balance the engine.

The LD28's balancer is a lot beefier than the one in the pic.

Would it fit? Wondering if it would clear the IP drive...

I'm going to have the complete rotating assembly balanced, flywheel with pressure plate and balancer bolted to the crank.

Another question, anyone know a ballpark bob weight? I'll post the number once I weigh everything, just curious...

Never mind, got to pulling it apart today and now I see how it drives the IP. Oh well...
