        I'm replacing a 2002 4.0L SOHC with a good engine. I've seen/read a lot of posts about failed harmonic balancers.

        RockAuto has an oem ford updated harmonic balancer, Ford. P/N: 8L2Z-6B321-C, for about $100 delivered. What do you think? Install new at that cost or roll dice with the 116k unit, which seemed to wobble a little but not too much (and no squeel) on the replacement engine before I started taking it apart"

        Hey I'm wondering if you ever finished up the throttle cable bracket and hookup for your m90 install post. I'm building a similar Intake assembly to yours
