Default 1957 harmonic balancer

Where can I get a new harmonic balancer and how much money are they for a 1957 Thunderbird?

Thanks!

There's a repair sleeve available. Do you need the whole balancer. If so you'll probably have to find a used one. New ones aren't available to my knowledge.

Thanks Ray and John. You guys are great. My mechanic Peter Leddy said the one on my '57 "needed to be welded or replaced". He said they were expensive. So naturally I went searching all the sources I could find. Nothing. He didn't say where he could find one.

Scott, if Peter or someone on here can give you the '57 Part # for this harmonic balancer, then you might be able to find it at one of these Obsolete Parts companies. You are probably going to have to provide them with the Part #, because it has been my experience that is what they look it up by on their computer systems. Here is what I have culled out of the Advertisements Forum that you might want to check out...

Here is the web page and contact information for Desert Valley Auto Parts, in Phoenix, of Desert Car Kings TV show fame. 800-905-8024.
http://www.dvap.com/

Green Sales Co-Obsolete Ford, Lincoln, Mercury Parts is located in Ohio - http://www.greensalescompany.com - 800-543-4959. This company specializes in stocking old, obsolete parts. If you are looking for something and cannot find it, try Green!

https://www.rearcounter.com/inquire-...0434&embedded=

This Inquiry Form shows the inquiry to be for C3TZ-12A042-B. However, if you use this form to inquire about some other NOS part, say so in the Comments section..

NOS Parts recently consolidated 5 independent warehouses into one 10,000ft facility in Waxahachie, Texas. These separate warehouses had been providing New Old Stock Ford, Lincoln and Mercury parts to Dealerships, auto centers and individuals for over 40 years. In addition we acquire the inventory of Ford and Lincoln /Mercury dealers who look to reduce their inventory levels. To date NOS Parts Ltd has cataloged over 67,000 part numbers. Here is their phone number and email address.

972-937-2201 sales@nospartsltd.com

Here is the link to all Tbirds - 1955-2005. They list 1,789 parts available across those years.

Wow! Thanks for the telephone call to alert me of more firms that you posted that have '55-'57 parts. Now I shouldn't have trouble finding parts for my car.

Happy New Year to all.

I highly recommend Tee-Bird products in West Chester, PA as Ray mentioned. I've dealt with them a number of times and they really know their stuff.

Scott, I did some research on the part # for the 1957 harmonic balancer. Apparently, the 1955 1956 1957 Thunderbird Harmonic Balancer are the same part #, B5SZ-6312-A. There is one for sale on feeBay, new, NOS, but it is expensive. I will email you the link to it.

Thanks, John! By the way, I sure like your '59 convertible. Those model Thunderbirds grows more popular.
