It's not a regular occurrence that you realize that you have to buy a replacement Harmonic Balancer to fix your car or truck. Ford car, truck, or SUV owners have come to expect a certain level of dependability when driving their Ranger around town. The vehicle in your driveway symbolizes the best in class compared to all the other cars, trucks, and SUVs in today's marketplace. While it may not be difficult to find replacement parts for Ford vehicles, these days only the highest quality are required to repair your car or truck.
The problem with your internal combustion engine is that enough vibrations are being produced to shake the whole thing apart. The harmonic balancer contains a large rubber membrane that addresses this issue. The harmonic balancer is a huge, vibration-dampening pulley that connects your drive belts to the accessories in your Ford Ranger engine. Since these accessories require the centrifugal force of the crankshaft to power them but would be severely harmed if the vibrations were transferred through the belts, your Ford Ranger harmonic balancer's rubber core soaks up that vibration to keep the crankshaft spinning smoothly.

The purpose of an harmonic balancer is to absorb crankshaft vibrations. Harmonic balancers are typically constructed in three pieces. The first piece is often called a hub. It bolts to directly to the crankshaft. The hub is surrounded by rubber or fluid which dampens crankshaft vibrations. The outside layer is metal which has grooves on it for the belt. Over time the rubber and/or fluid layer deteriorate causing the outer pulley to shift forward. This causes belt miss alignment and can.. (more)
