From my readings here, the damper plate occasionally fails, but seldom "explodes" taking the bell housing with it. There just isn't that much mass in the damper plate - unlike, for example, the...

I've got one that I'm ready to sell, but I can't imagine that shipping it is going to be a reasonable answer. Anyone coming to Phoenix who wants one, give me a call.

That's an external fuel pump used on TBI engines. It's an easy replacement - get a Carter P-5000 kit, bolt it in, and you're good to go.

What size does it break down to? I'd be interested in a road trip for picking it up, if I could fit it in my car (not worth the effort to road trip in the truck). I've got a sedan that has perhaps...
