'87 YJ 4.2L Harmonic Balancer

Hi fellow jeepers.

Please does anyone know where I can get a flat belt harmonic balancer for an '87 4.2L?

I have had two companies send me the wrong thing so far (first it was V belt, then the step was wrong).

There is an EBAY link in this post. It may be what you are looking for;

I have one I can send you, if you still need one. I just swapped my 4.2 for a 4.0.

I could use thatt harmonic balancer....

Have a Jeep 1990 Wrangler, Laredo, 6 cyl 258 automatic 4.2l engine. Changed the timing chain and the harmonic got damaged. Thanks Steve - email me at steventszabo@gmail.com. Or if anyone has a harmonic balancer they are willing to part with!

you should specify flat belt or V. most are V and I had flat which made it a nightmare.
