    Description

    C5AE-6316-A All 1967 and 1968 Mercury Cougar includes both C code 289-2V and A code 289-4V engines. 1967 and 1968 only, 6-5/16 inches in diameter, 3/4 inches thick, cast iron construction with key way groove. Has the timing marks on rim. Refundable $50.00 core charge when rebuildable C5AE-6316-A harmonic balancer is received by WCCC.
    *Note - Not for the K code 271Hp 289 HiPo engines.We don't offer that one because Ford never installed that engine in any Cougar. We can offer the rebuilding service, but you must provide the correct balancer with either C7ZE-6316-A or C5OE-6316-A Ford casting numbers.

    This is a picture of a 40 year old piece of rubber removed from a harmonic balancer.  Notice how dry and cracked it is.  The premium black silicone (high temperature) rubber we use is not affected by even continual heat (up to 400 F.) or engine motor oil.  The modern material used in our balancers cost about $200 per gallon and will not look like what you see here 40 years later.  [You will want to prevent submersion in solvents or gasoline as this type of rubber will absorb solvents.]   

    The little metal staple you see embedded in the rubber below is for anti static purposes, its job is to ground the inner portion of the part to the outer ring.  Over the years the low quality metal used is usually deteriorated beyond usefulness. 

    Our units have this Beryllium copper spring embedded in them for grounding.  This spring boasts 201,000 pounds of tensile strength and will ensure you get no radio static as a result of the balancer.

    Core refunds can only given when we deem the part worthy of being rebuilt.
