HELP! 302 Harmonic Balancer ??

I just bought a 65 Ranchero that has a '78' 302-2v Truck engine. Only #s I can see (right now) is D8TE off the EGR valve and intake.

Anyways, the engine has a vibration. (knew it when I bought it). Dude said it was a bad damper. Ok... No problem right ??

Just picked up a 28oz damper off a Small block today (D00E-C1.

I was checking out the one on the Ranchero and it is thicker! It's about 1 1/2" thick -Vs- about 1" thick for the D00E!

WTF is going on here! Did a previous owner accidently install a 50oz balancer or WHAT ???

How thick are 50oz balancers ??

I believe windsors are balanced with both flexplate/fly wheel and damper it may pay to check that as well

Wimblton white 66 coupe C code 289 auto
97 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 auto, lift ,winch,33's etc
04 Holden VY SS 5.7 auto (wifes)
88 KLR 250

DISCLAMER:
Please feel free to ignor all advice/information offered
I could be wrong...... I have been before.

I know, I'm gonna try the balancer first before I drop the transmission.

Anyone know the physical differences/measurements between the 28oz and 50oz Harmonic Balancers ??

The 50oz balancer came out 1981 and later (5.0 engine)

The early Pre 81 has a 28oz balancer.

The counter weights are different between 28oz and the 50oz. If you have the 50oz counter weight, maybe someone put a late model crank shaft in your engine ???? Check the crank numbers to see if it is a late model crank.

Easy solution. Buy a Pro-Street or Summit Balancer for a SB Ford which has the removable counter-weights and multi-position timing marks plus they fit 3 and 4 bolt pulleys........

Roger that Oz.

What has me confused is the physical size difference in the damper on the engine and the one I picked up.

Can anyone verify if ALL 28oz balancers the same thickness or are there differences within the 28oz balancer family ???

Hmm... The balancer I picked up is about an 1" thinner than the one on the car. It has a D00E-C1 part#. Can't get to the #s on the one on the car (YET).

Is it possible the thicker one on the car is ALSO a 28oz balancer ??

Just got the # of the damper (from the engine in the car).

It's C9TE-A2.

Is that a 28oz balancer ??

If so, can I swap it out with the thinner D00E-C1 28oz balancer ??

ok, it is a 69 ballancer, there are 3 possibilitys, a 3 bolt one that has the PN C5OZ-6316-C, D2AZ-6316-A (for a 351, but will fit) and D2TZ-6316-B (most common for a 69 302)

Both dampers are 4 bolt variety.

Will they interchange even though they are of different thicknesses ??

they can, but you need the same thicknesss to keep your pulleys lined up

Hmmmm.....Thanks Twister.

How would I line up the pulleys if I swap the balancers ??

Only things I'll be running are the fan and alternator.

you would have to make a spacer or purchase one I believe Ford has a spacer to keep pulleys aligned its for 351 windsor swap into fox bodies using 302 pulleys and accessories. but might work for you.
