Compatible harmonic balancer

I'm building a 73 Gran Torino as a mild sleeper. I'm having trouble finding a harmonic balancer to replace the old one. My parts guy found one for a 93 F150 and it looks the same but the counter weight is a different shape. The 351W and the 302 are all externally balanced basically the same right? So as long as it was for a 351W it should work right?

No, Fords use at least two differen't balance factors for external weight. Maybe a Ford guy will see this post and give you the specs on what is interchangable.

I know in my parts replacement book there are several pages of different Ford balancers.

Here is a short partial list Silver Seal Products V8 Engine

It's unclear whether or not you have an old damper. If you do, send it back to these guys to be rebuilt. If you don't have an old damper, buy a rebuilt unit from them.

You need a 28 oz imbalance damper if you are running a 351W. All the production 351W engines use this.
