Product Note: The Torsional Vibration Damper on your CATERPILLAR 3500 Series Crankshaft Damper is a wear item that requires replacement at the 500,000-mile mark. The installation of a new Damper is strongly recommended in an effort to eliminate harmful torsional crankshaft vibration and ensure trouble-free operation. The replacement of the engine crankshaft damper is often overlooked during the In-Frame overhaul process due to costs.
