5.9 Harmonic Balancers OE style on ebay

Just wanted to let the 5.9 owners know there are OE style HB's available . I have not seen these around as most now have the pulley cast on them in 1 pc . They are fine , and I do have one installed , but , these are , more original . Besides , if you ever need to remove the new style , you need another puller

Price is $65 and even shipping to Canada , only $14 more . Great deal IMO . Fast shipping , good ebayer , 100% positive feedback . I sure like mine . The yellowish color is reflection off the bench , it`s very clean , pic don't do justice . Link below pics

The one I got from Rockauto (the only place I could find one back then and also do international shipping) certainly isn't OEM quality. It's one of those with the 1- piece design, can't remember the manufacturer though. I get a slight vibration at 1500rpm (+/-50rpms) that wasn't there before.

Thanks for the info, I probably gotta buy one of these if it's better than the 1-piece design versions. I hate the vibe, especially because I stay on that RPM range quite often when driving. Downside is, I used the old OEM pulley/ HB "frame" to fab a tool so I can keep the crankshaft from rotating when doing certain work on the engine

I got the updated Mopar one piece design from Kolak and it's vibe free. Can't use a crows foot puller on it though. You need a 3 claw. Can't say how easy it is to get off. I haven't needed to remove it yet. The original was real easy to remove.

$30 shipping from rockauto to my door . I have a one pc on my slate 5.9 , no issues after 4 years . Warped pulley was a concern of mine initially but turned out ok , Timo , maybe you got some shipping damages Either way , I like these better .

I should order one for my future 5.9 , you know I will have another one soon ,

I looked at the same thing, that the one- piece version might be a pain to pull out. Not too much room, and I'd hate to need to remove the radiator and A/C condenser. IIRC there was hardly enough room to pull the old one out with a 3-jaw puller that I had shortened.


As far as the vibrations go, I don't think it had suffered any damage. Everything rotates exactly like should (I've measured with a dial gauge and nothing there). Probably just poor quality with the inner-outer-ring placement with each other. I couldn't bother sending it back and getting a new one because the vibes aren't huge. It's noticable, but not overly bad to destroy anything.


I will have to order one of those OEM- design versions. Just to be sure... you never know when you realize another niner has mysteriously appeared on the driveway

I've got a one-piece pulley on mine (wish these had been available when I got it!) but you can remove it without pulling the radiator. I use a 2-jaw puller from Princess Auto and it gets the job done - it's tight, but it works. The two-piece is a lot easier to get out using a steering wheel puller though.

That's pretty neat. I might just buy one of these as a spare. I have a one-piece on there now and I'd really like to go back to the OE style if/when the current one comes off.

The one piece is OE. It's the updated version. The one you see here is the original version. They don't make them like that anymore as far as I know.

Then I like the OOE version. The one-piece is not my favorite.

I see an excuse for a wider main pulley for the supercharger drive belt..

Wow, that looks pretty bad. Couple years ago when my HB failed, it looked a lot better than that (heck, it was still all black ). When I took off from traffic lights behind another car - FRRRRMMMM... I saw a weird looking strip land on the pavement behind my Jeep, and it took me probably two seconds to realize what just happened.

I couldn't even stop there, but had to drive another couple miles with the dismembered harmonic balancer. The wobbles evened out to almost normal @2700rpm though When I found out the sweet RPMs, I could actually drive it home from after work
