997 Cooper crank damper?

3 comments

  1. Anyone know what type of crank damper was fitted to the 997 engine?

    Had an idea it was a two piece item as per the Cooper S, but not sure.

    Car is August '63 built.

    Thanks.

    Hope this doesn't confuse you but…..

    The parts book (AKD3509) shows both in the pictures then in the list:

    1 piece 88G305
    2 piece AEG454 + 12A367

    Followed by the note: Part no change: was 12A366 and 12G282. Use AEG454 with 12A367 damper 1 off, HZS0505 screw 4 off and LWZ0305 4 off for this application.
    It then adds that the two piece is to be used for service from the outset. There is no changeover from one to the other given.

    Thusly, it would likely be the two piece.

    Cheers.

    The crank pulley for the 997 is the same as the 'S' item. I beleive you can still buy these parts, individually if required from Minispares.:dude:
