Looking for Harmonic Balancer. Got one? Positive waves...
Posted by: PequotMonza64 ()

On the off chance that someone might have an excellent extra harmonic balancer just taking up space...

Looking for mechanically sound newly manufactured or quality rebuilt harmonic balancer for 64 and later Corvair. Not looking for anything really OLD including 58 year old NOS. Hoping to find something mechanically sound that you might have an extra of at a reasonable price before I spend over $300 elsewhere! Maybe it's that thing in the dusty box that you keep tripping over in the garage...

Let me know what you have, please.

Be a hero! Get rid of one old Corvair part, and take your wife out to dinner!

I send 3 or so at a time to Dale in order to spread out the shipping cost. It ends up being close in price to new Chinese which I try to avoid. If I need something quicker I go for the Made in USA higher price option.

Jim, sounds like you have an extra. Maybe sell one to him and have him send his to Dale and then return shipped to you from Dale

DALE cannot rebuild EVERY balancer - he is very picky about the inside diameter, and taper - at least when I had my last one rebuilt. Probably took me 7-8 balancers in the 'pile' to find one he would accept. I recently bought another from Bob Coffin, when he offered them here - and I believe he supplies to Clarks.

Almost like a newbie wandering in the Clark's catalog. Can someone tell me Dale's price on a rebuild?
Thanks.

From Davids (Dales) site - $209 plus return shipping. I remembered mine ended up around $250.

That price is right.. Send two of them to save cost.. He does a great job.. But you might want to check to see if he is doing them know.. I know he takes a hiatus from doing them.. I think August is the time he takes a break.. Check out his website first...

Since I live across town from Dave I always take a few extra balancers with me so that he can check them all and that way if someone needs a core I know it will be good.
