82 Town Car Harmonic Balancer

This was the one and only year this particular type was made. Mine is shot. Ford doesn't sell them and they don't make them anywhere I can find. Junkyard
parts will be 22 yrs old. Any suggestions?

they had problems with them and then changed over to something different the next year... bet a 83 will work on it... as far as that goes just about any harmonic balancer will works.. its already balanced and just trying to keep the balanced crankshaft more balanced(it that makes sense??).... if it fits the shaft then thats all you need..do the holes line up for any pulley that goes there????

My bet is that some like Fluid Damper will have one for your application. It is a performance piece and will obviously be more expensive than an OEM but, if it's avaialble ... There are also restorers that can rebuild almost any rubber insert damper. I am curious to know how it is different from any other 5.0L designated engine. It is almost unheardof for Ford to simpy drop something like that with no replacement. I think I would look for an old timer parts man who is willing to trace the part numbers. You may also ask them to check the network for an NOS one laying on another dealer's shelf somewhere. If you could get a salvage yard guy to look it up in his Hollander Manual, it will probably have a replacement number listed which you may also be able to get through Ford. Even if you had to buy an old junker from him for a few bucks to get the info, it may be worth it.

Why did you repost this? Someone responded to your previous post and even supplied a place to purchase the part you need.
