Anyone know where to pick up a harmonic balancer for a 63’ with 390 motor? I have a strange vibration in Park when I hold the pedal at a steady rpm. I’m thinking that may be the issueContinue

"Ta da! It was indeed the spacer! The hole in the back that sits on the water pump shaft was oversized causing it to never be perfectly aligned. Thanks you everyone for the guidance and Jason for having that part!"
