  • vibration dampenr

    hi,
    i'll try to make a long story short. with this question. are all studebaker vibration dampeners the same. i have a 58 golden hawk.
    the previous owner put some of the gh engines' parts on his standard v-8. and now i'm trying to determine if the vibration dampener is unique to the golden hawk,or are dampers of that vintage the same.

      If you're vibration dampner is a thick, flat disc - with some timing marks stamped into it's outer edge at one place, it's probably correct for your car.

      As JDP says, the R-series engines used a vastly different dampner. Some have a belt groove in their WIDE outer edge, and some are just smooth.

      Miscreant at large.

        For what it may be worth...
        When talking about the actual part...the term is damper. The "n" is added when you talk about what the damper actually does.

          OK - I guess a dampener would be a wet sponge or rag then[)]

          Well, ya made me look....

              '51 - '54 Chassis Parts book calls it a damper. Stude said it, I believe it, that settles it!
