Performance diesel damper

Published in the December 2008 Issue December 2008 Products


Each time the air/fuel mixture inside a cylinder is ignited, the combustion that occurs creates a torque spike that is applied to the crankshaft through the piston and rod. This torque spike is so severe that it not only turns the crankshaft, it actually twists the crankshaft ahead of its normal rotation and the crankshaft then rebounds. This twisting action is known as torsional vibration. Fluid Dampers are designed to control those destructive vibrations.
