do you mean the harmonic balancer...ok..to remove you need to remove the fan and shroud assembly. YOu may need to remove the radiator to get enough room to get a impact gun and a socket on the nut to remove the harmonic balancer if you dont have a impact you are going to have to lock the engine and get a large breaker bar and a socket on the nut and then remove the part.
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.
Start by disconnecting the negative battery cable at the battery. Remove the radiator. Remove the drive belts and crankshaft pulley. Remove the Vibration Damper (Harmonic Balancer) bolt. Use a puller and remove the Vibration Damper. Reverse these instructions to reassemble. (Tighten the Vibration Damper bolt to the correct torque)
Do you mean the harmonic balancer located at the front of the engine , on the end of the crankshaft
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.
You have to remove the Vibration Damper first, then you will have clear access to the Crank sensor. Make sure when you reinstall it, the wires don't get caught in the Damper assembly and you have clearance where the sensor mounts. Easy fix.
1984 Ford 351/302 crankshaft balancer (vibration damper). The 351 had a 28 oz and the 302 had a 50 oz damper.
Front of engine, passenger side, just behind the vibration damper, best accessed from underneath.
In most cases no, it is two pieces pressed together with rubbber in between. It is called the vibration damper or the harmonic balancer.
Behind the vibration damper on the passenger side. It is best reached from under the front of the vehicle.
Locate the crank sensor behind the vibration damper (crankshaft pulley). Unplug the wire harness connected to it. Remove the small bolt holding the sensor in place. Remove the sensor.
No Because it is made out of rubber
The vibration damper pulley and the crankshaft pulley are pressed together with a rubber sleeve. They are held onto the crank by a key and keyway. I've never had to use a puller. Usually when you take the bolt out of the crank it will just wiggle off. I've never had one on their that tight that it wouldn't come off just with my hands.
Use a socket, short extension and a breaker bar on the front crankshaft bolt that holds on the vibration damper. Rotate the engine clockwise from underneath the vehicle.
When a ball is hit, it produces vibrations that goes through the strings. When they reach the damper they are absorbed
No. You have to physically turn the engine clockwise by hand using the appropriate socket and wrench on the crankshaft vibration damper bolt.
The crankshaft damper is behind the crankshaft pulley.
Assuming this is the 4.3L engine, the crank sensor is located in the front of the engine, close to the vibration damper on the passenger side. It is best accessed from underneath the front of the truck.
Vibration is the rapid back-and-forth motion of the strings and frame that follows the shock of the initial impact of the ball. Although some players find it annoying and use a vibration damper to reduce it, vibration has little effect on your hand or arm.
rent a puller rent a puller
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
Raise the left front of the van then remove the wheel and the rubber splash shield. Remove the drive belt and the bolt that retains the pulley to the crankshaft next use a puller to remove the pulley. On installing it you need an installer don't hammer on it, I have seen that done and the crank destroyed. Depending on your location parts stores will loan or rent the puller and installer.
