Vibration found?

I'm hoping I found the source(s) of my engine vibration. I removed the front engine dress to get a better look at the balancer, and I came across:

1) someone used the wrong thread fan bolts, stripping it

2) I think someone took out some aggression on the crank pulley as the back as warped.

The question of the damper weight rotating came up as well, so I was on my way to replacing the damper. Now that I have better access to it, can someone help me determine if that is necessary? I was thinking of replacing the pulley and fan bolts and seeing if that made a difference.

It's actually a 69 damper and pulley (on a 1980 engine in a 1967 car, go figure).

Yep.
All of that could cause an engine vibration.
I couldn't see the rubber ring on the balancer very well but if it loooks cracked at all, just replace it and anything else that looks suspicious.

Is that Harmonic Balancer original from '69?

Yeah probably a good call. If I were to go new, what's your favorite place, or is this one I could probably get from a parts store? I pretty much have to replace the pulley too, they must have beat it with a hammer. Jerks.

The code on it is C9OE-6316-D2. I read that as 1969 Fairline/Torino.

Hmmm, looking closer I noticed a narrow on the balancer:

About 4 o'clock in this pic. So, is that supposed to point to something specific? If so, that should offer a clue.

Haha. The "arrow" is pointing to the the big break in the rubber ring.
It looks like a 1 to me. Maybe a casting number?

Try Rockauto.com.
I'd be surprised if they didn't have every part that you need. Just no high performance goodies.
There's a discount code in the General Mustang forum.

Haha, yeah it sure is. And you're right again, I think it is a 1.

Sweet, I'll check them out. Thanks!
