Hey guys, I'm putting a 468 BBC together with a 8-71 on it and am curious on what your favorite 2 key dampners are. I've read somewhere they don't recommend fluids and I know some just run a hub.

Care to share some of your experiance??

Thanks for the help........john

ATI is the shit.

make sure you use a 6 bolt damper and hub, otherwise the three bolts can shear, assembly will shear off and spin around inside the boat. Hopefully it will happen right when you shut down and damage will be minimal.

Don't ask how I know.:)sphss:D

The pro/race does have the six holes for the blower pulley and the three for the v-belt pulley.
