NEW: Crankshaft balancer for Caterpillar Models | Universal Crankshaft balancer for Caterpillar 3406,C15 & ACE Models. - The Pittsburgh Power balancer reduces rotational vibration in crankshafts and wheels - Mercury filled raceway compensates for minor rotational imbalances - This balancer improves engine performance, durability, and reduces cab vibrations and vibration noise - Unlike ball bearing balancers mercury never wears out and is much quieter A Mercury-filled crankshaft balancer is a tube mounted on the outside of a thin metal disc-shaped plate with a measured amount of Mercury in it that goes behind the crankshaft damper. The tube will fit just around the crank damper. All engines are somewhat out of balance because of the plus and minus tolerances of machining processes when the crank, rods, pistons, flywheels, and clutches are made. With the Mercury-Filled Pittsburgh Balancer, the mercury swings to the light side to compensate for the heavy side and the end result is a much smoother running engine. So why are we so concerned with having a smooth running engine? First of all, vibrations will wear out your body and you will get fatigued sooner. Secondly, think about how many rivets, screws, and bolts hold your truck together. Vibrations will enable those items to come loose and sometimes will even break brackets that hold the alternator and air conditioner compressors. The smoother the engine runs, the longer the rod and main bearings will last and it is much easier to use the mirrors to back up when they are not vibrating. This Pittsburgh Mercury-Filled Engine Balancer is manufactured for us by Balance Masters and they have balancers for your semi tires, pick-up truck tires, or even your Harley Davidson engine and transmission, which I love on my 03 Ultra Classic. We own four Dodges with Cummins Engines and all of them have Balance Masters on their wheels. All of the Balance Masters products are available at Pittsburgh Power. Want to make your tires live longer and reduce cupping? Install the Balancer Masters. You will love them! By the way, the older we get, the smoother we want our ride to be. Most Owner-Operators are so sensitive to what their truck is doing that they feel every pebble the tire goes over. That type of person will definitely appreciate this product.
