on the Chrysler engine (420a) you do need a puller and installer to deal with the crankshaft dampener pulley.
if its sohc it doesnt have , if its dohc its behind the lower damper i think
AKA, crank pulley damper, crankshaft damper, torsional damper, or vibration damper.
The "balancer" mounted to the front of the crankshaft is also called a vibration damper.
you just need a puller to take it off, it's not a special puller.
No Because it is made out of rubber
The crankshaft damper is behind the crankshaft pulley.
Drop the engine by removing the passenger motor mount
if it has a distributor, its in the distributor, if no distributor its at the front of the engine by the crankshaft damper
You need a special harmonic damper puller. It's a variant of a basic 3-jaw puller that it made stronger so that it wont break.
You need to use a puller tool. The trick is not to pull against the stamped center of the damper that looks like a washer. You need to thread the crankshaft bolt out a bit and push against the bolt head.
The crankshaft position sensor is located at the front of the engine close to the crankshaft damper
The crankshaft position sensor is mounted on the front of the engine near the crankshaft pulley . Looking from the front it is to the left of the crankshaft pulley and is triggered by the teeth which are machined into the crankshaft damper (Chilton) You can see it from underneath the Explorer
It depends on what you're trying to accomplish, more info please.
Depends on what type of vibration damper (crankshaft pulley) you have. Your local auto parts store probably has the one you need and can rent it to you.
1984 Ford 351/302 crankshaft balancer (vibration damper). The 351 had a 28 oz and the 302 had a 50 oz damper.
It is at the front of the engine, below and to the left of the damper.
on the timing cover sensing the damper
Do you mean the harmonic balancer located at the front of the engine , on the end of the crankshaft
Disconnect the battery and remove the fan assembly and crankshaft belts. Remove the center bolt from the pulley and use a crankshaft pulley remover to pull off the pulley. You can usually borrow one from an auto parts store.
The timing marks show on the WDS screen. Unlike in the past where they were located in the Crankshaft damper.
Does the LSS have a 3.8L engine? If so, the crank sensor is behind the crank pulley/harmonic damper.
No. Counter clockwise to loosen. It is very tight.
I am assuming this is a 3.0L or 3.3L or 3.8L (90 degree) V6 engine. Remove the crankshaft vibration damper. There is a plastic shiels there, yank it off. You now are looking at the crank sensor. To remove the above mentioned damper, you should use a special tool designed for this purpose. If not available, you need a functional brain, generic 2 or 3 BOLT type puller with three bolts, and some time to think about what you will break if you screw this up. If you use a jaw puller, you deserve to buy a new damper anyway. Rubber is just plain obviously not as strong as steel.
The assembly is called a "Harmonic Balancer" or "Harmonic Damper" in Europe. The Rubber acts as a damper to smoth the engine vibrations at certain speeds. The Rubber is not available seperately so most people won't know its called a "Damper"
