Damper pulley gone bad ?


Recommended Posts

Changed the belt out about a year ago because it was older and that one went bad two days ago chewed up on the inside even the two day old belt is already starting to rip a little on the inside edge as well :mad:

so I decided to look at all pulleys while moving and the damper pulley seems to have too much play

can it be bad ? is this a common problem or anyone heard of such a thing before ?

the part is a dealer only part so far and its $420 :doh:

Anywhere else you know of sell them if I do need a new one ?

I didnt get mine here ^ just wanted to show you. So to answer your question yes they go bad. Mine did not shread my belt. Make sure everything else is ok.

Oh a squeak is something mine does at shut down as well

My truck has squeeked on shut down since it was new. Still does. I wonder about the idler pully, I had one fail on a Ford Ranger (2.2 natural diesel (no turbo). Not sure if the pivot wore first or the ball bearings but both were junk when it came out.

I tried to figure out if it was bad today but no luck other than seeing it shake while running so I ended up taking it to my friend's shop who looked at it and said it does need replacementNow where can I get one for a deal ? I am so broke its not even funny :banghead:
