My name is ***** ***** and I am looking part number for a harmonic balancer for 1987 Bus. The white label on the valve cover says Engine Family HGM08.2DABX and Model V8-8.2

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Harmonic balancer is shot and needs to be replaced.

4 cycle Detroit Diesel. 8.2 Fuel Pincher engine? Turbocharged or natural aspirated?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Natural aspirated.
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Is this a viscous dampener, oil filled, or more like a crankshaft pulley with rubber bushing?

I see a parts book for sale on Ebay. But nothing on line. A full service Detroit dealer, like Stewart and Stevenson could find the part or give you the number. They are in Houston and Denver.
