I love the sound of a wildly built six when its idiling. Better than the smell of napalm in the morning.

Dr Neal,
It's a Fluid damper for a 0-balance small block Ford, I have a # for it somewhere...
My crank is DESTROKED ( 3.50 )..

THANKS Greg,
Like napalm when it comes apart it will DESTROY EVERYTHING ( LOL )...

Is that vibration common to the 300? I used to off road race a 390 that we spun at 6500. It has a shorter stroke than the 300 however I believe the 300 & 428fe were the same. I never heard about vibration with those. I built a 445fe stroker a couple years ago. No issues there but I didn't spin it that fast.

YES with a stick, not so much with a automatic the converter works like a fluid damper ( I think )...
