Has anyone had experience with buying a new damper/balancer .
I need one on my 81 258/4.2 rebuild the original had completely seperated into 2 pieces upon removal as the rubber spacer was shot. That was probably a big timing issue with it for the previous owner.
I see Quadratec offers a replacement for $64.99 + shipping I guess.
DOES anyone know where I can get any better price on a new replacement ????

Damper Doctor Online - Your source for Harmonic Balancers, Motor Mounts, & Drive Shaft Supports has a lot of AMC applications, but the prices don't appear better than what you found.

I'd consider posting a thread in JF's Wanted Forum. I parted out a 258 not long ago, but I'm not sure if I kept that. Would need the 7-digit part number off yours anyway. What is it?
