    What replacement crank dampners are 340 folks using these days? I want a real good quality one, for street / strip and trying to avoid the $500.00 price tag. Any recommendations?
    Thanks

      You can buy an ATI for well under $500. Same for BHJ.

      I'm sure if you email them they'd be happy to give you a country of origin.

        Note that this balancer is for INTERNALLY BALANCED cranks. Late model 340 and 360 engines are externally balanced.

              ATI Super damper. I've said this before - ran one on the 4 cylinder mini-stock I raced. Running an RPM range of 5000 - 8500 at race speeds all season. At the end of the year there was next to no wear on the main and rod bearings, and you know how these 4 cylinders vibrate. That's why I spent the money for one on the 340 I built last year.

                Rattler has had great reviews but its a weird principle. Cant go wrong with a fluid style damper.

                If you find one for a pre 70 passanger side timing marks let me know.
                I used a Summit damper and remarked it.

                  Anything that says the application is for '68-71 340 should work.

                  I purchased the speedmaster fluid dampener and it looks like a really good unit. Fluid dampener knockoff but bewarned mine had alignment problems it's not a bolt on and go you will need to space out alternator pulley and water pump one half inch to a line

                      If I had to do it again I would consider the pioneer it seems to be a direct fit and highly regarded.

                      I have the TCI Rattler on my 408. Good unit. Makes a funny noise at shut down. Other than that, Excellent!

                      Show me an SFI approved pre 70 damper with the correct timing marks.
