When your Series 60 diesel engine is having an in-frame overhaul completed the crankshaft damper is often overlooked. The failure to replace the crankshaft damper is an extremely expensive error. 

The failure to replace a worn-out viscous crankshaft damper will not protect your engine from costly engine damage and downtime.
KLM Performance recommends regular inspection of the crankshaft damper to ensure the protection of torsional vibration which will lead to costly engine damage and downtime.
That’s why regular viscous damper replacement in heavy-duty applications is critical to longer engine life

The use of an overseas manufactured Detroit Diesel damper is penny wise and pound foolish!
