The Fluidampr 870211 High Performance Diesel Damper for 2003 to 2009 Ford Super Duty trucks with the 6.0L Powerstroke equipped with Dual Alternators controls torsional vibrations and smooths out the diesel engine chatter. A Viscous Damper offers superior control of the crankshaft vibrations when compared to the factory rubber damper. The Fluidampr continually adjusts to provide optimum damping of the destructive vibrations across the engines entire operating rpm band.

What is Torsional Vibration and How Does the Fluidampr 870211 control this destructive force?
Each time the air/fuel mixture inside a cylinder is ignited, the combustion charge that occurs creates a torque spike that is applied to the crankshaft through the piston and rod. This torque spike is so severe that it not only turns the crankshaft, it twists the crankshaft ahead of its regular rotation and then the crankshaft rebounds. This twisting action is known as torsional vibration. When these torque spikes and forces get into phase with the natural frequency, critical torsional harmonic vibrations occur and can be severely destructive to the bearings and the crankshaft. Fluidampr High Performance Diesel Dampers are designed to control those destructive vibrations.
