Aloha! My "newest" 235 is a 1960 and I need a harmonic balancer. I see 2 different sizes, what's the difference, which one will I need? Thanks in advance.

Hey Jim, good to see you back. The early 235's used a smaller diameter pulley on the H.B. My '59 came with the one on the left in this picture. The one on the right is an original '53. But I don't know the exact year it changed.

Hey Double R! The plot thickens, this engine is going in my 1935 1/2 ton truck. I was going to put a '54 short shaft water pump on it, with adaptor plate. I need a balancer and pully.

I still have the 50 tin woody, my 'ex' (yes that happened) still has her '54, which stays here at the house (we're still good friends)

OK thanks pal.

Well post some pictures of that '35 pickup!

I might have a spare balancer, but it would be the larger one I'm thinking. Which one do you need? I've dragged home a few blown-up 235's just for the heads, etc. I'll check and see. If I do have the one you need, I'll send it to you.

Glad you got the '50 still.

Are you going with the 5/8 or 1/2 inch pulley?

I've been asked about that pully width by others too, I understand some might want the 5/8" to look more like a 216", is that so? I don't, 1/2" is fine or, whatever comes 1st. only because if any tom foolery was going on with looks, I'd want it to look like a 207", and that would be silly, and just wouldn't work. The 207" babbitt pounder in it runs well, noisy as all get out though. I want to get it out, save it, but enjoy a better engine.

Aw, man, that's a gorgeous old truck.

I've been putting in a septic system for the last few days, and am beat. So, no chance to check, but I'll check sheave width tomorrow, and see what I have. PM me your address. I forgot it.

I haven't seen Gene posting for awhile. Does anyone know if he's still active on CT?

Thanks guys! I tried asking a question in the truck dept and it didn't get any responses. so, if it's pertinent to 49-54's I might ask here.

Jim, the one I have is a narrow belt H.B. From the '59 engine that another CT member blew up and gave to me. Let me know if you want it.
