    I recently picked up a low mileage 7.3 IDIT. I’m going to check main and rod bearings and cylinder wear before I put it back together with new gaskets and head studs. First thing I noticed is it has an n/a flexplate with a turbo balancer previous owner says it was replaced and it was also says it had no vibration. I definitely want to make sure it’s correct. That being said, I know they are tough to get and if anyone could point me in the right direction or sell me one it will be greatly appreciated

    Yeah I saw that I might have to bite the bullet they’re like $335 but are way more heavy duty than stock

    So was he tight about the vibration or did you not run it? If you have the funds, now would be a great time for head studs since you'll have the heads off anyway.

    I heard the engine run you would probably have to drive it to feel it the previous owner says no vibration Iplan on doing headstuds for sure

    @bad67ford I purchased a complete turbo motor for the turbo kit, and it came with the E4OD flexplate still on it. I am adding the turbo to my N/A truck so the flexplate does me no good to keep as a spare. So, I would have the flexplate, spacers and bolts for sale if you are interested. I have no idea what the shipping would be - darn thing is heavy!
