Your International / Navistar Diesel Engine uses a Crankshaft Damper, which absorbs the torsional vibrations produced by your engine. These shock waves generated during the power stroke of each and every cylinder every time a power stroke is produced in your engine. The proper control of this twisting motion is continuously eliminated by installing a Vibratech engine damper to your crankshaft. No other engine damper controls torsional vibration on your International Diesel engine then the Vibratech viscous dampers. To ensure a long trouble free engine we recommend replacing your damper with a Vibratech crankshaft balancer. This engine's harmonic damper prevents crankshaft breakage and damage to other related engine components. Vibratech crank dampers are the highest quality American Made damper available.
KLM Performance recommends regular damper inspection along with replacing your crankshaft damper every 300 to 500 thousand miles or at the recommended service interval. Regular inspection and replacement of the Crankshaft Damper prevent the extreme costs incurred when you break your crankshaft or the other problems caused by deteriorating damper function. Think about purchasing a new heavy duty crankshaft damper as an insurance policy against a future broken crankshaft and you will feel the engine run smoother.
