In an earlier thread I posted a question, Do I have the right harmonic balancer on my car? Continuing it, having learned the correct size is 6.75, I was going to purchase it. I see that balancer that they say goes to my engine has no degree markings on it. The 8" one I have does. Does that make a difference? Sorry if I sound ignorant, but I am when it comes to this. TY
The origininal has 1 mark, as all standard (factory) balancers had, If you go to the 8" make sure your timing marks, (on your) cover will fit, my 79 Caprice had the mark a 12
0clock high, the 8" wont fit, and very hard to time,
Don't forget to also purchase a new timing tab if you get the 6.75" one. Does your engine have a tab bolted to the timing chain cover with two of the bolts or a pointer tacked to the front of the timing chain cover?
Your 8" one is likely an aftermarket one if it has several degree marks. Most will have just one mark that indicates #1 cylinder at TDC when the mark is lined up with the timing pointer or 0 mark on the timing tab.
Don't fret too much over that right now though....if you're simply replacing the balancer the timing is not going to be affected.
