Why do I need to replace my 14L crankshaft damper?

Vibratech TVD® invented the viscous damper technology in 1946 and continued to make these Detroit Diesel Torsional Vibration Dampers in the USA! The Vibratech Heavy Duty Diesel Dampers are produced with a free rotation inertia ring which is surrounded by a viscous silicone fluid enclosed in a laser welded, sealed housing.Detroit Diesel OEM dampers for the DETROIT DIESEL 14 Liter Series 60 engines should be replaced between 350K and 500K miles.  The 14L Damper is considered a wear item that needs to be replaced. A worn damper cannot control the dangerous torsional vibrations produced by your engine. The Vibratech Viscous damper effectively controls torsional vibrations at all engine rpm's and power output levels. Failure to address this wear item can lead to the expensive lesson we hear from owner-operators all the time. 

The Vibratech 717406-000 Torsional Vibration Damper products are manufactured in a registered state-of-the-art facility that is ISO 9001-2008 certified. Your DETROIT DIESEL® 14 Liter SERIES 60 diesel engine requires the best torsional vibration damper available so purchase a Vibratech 717406-000 diesel damper. Vibratech Heavy Duty Aftermarket dampers are designed by engineers who understand the very important principles of physics that are used to design harmonic dampers that effectively control torsional vibrations. These Fluid-filled Vibratech TVD® viscous harmonic dampers are the preferred heavy duty diesel engine vibration damper based upon Quality, Extreme Precision Manufacturing, Dependability, and Longevity. The use of an overseas manufactured 14L Detroit Diesel damper is penny wise and pound foolish!
