REMOVABLE COUNTERWEIGHTS
Harmonic dampers are supplied in two styles; those for internally balanced engines and those for externally balanced engines. Externally balanced engines have a counterweight bolted into the hub of the damper. The advantage of having a removable counterweight in the hub eliminates the possibility of having the counterweight mass move from its position. The PRO/RACER Damper for internally and externally balanced small block and big block Chevys and for small block Chryslers is identical except for the counterweight. This means, for example, if you have a PRO/RACER Damper for a 400 small block Chevy you can remove the counterweight and the damper will work perfectly for a 350 Chevy. Conversely, if you have a 350 Damper and want to use it on a 400 you can now purchase the proper PRO/RACE counterweight and bolt it into your 350 damper and it is now a 400 damper. All small block Ford dampers are externally balanced with a counterweight. This counterweight can be removed for use with internally balanced engines.
