ROSS Landrover TD5 Metal Jacket Harmonic Damper 865200
Our innovative damper design solves one of the major flaws of the almost unbreakable Landrover TD5 engine, with happy customers reporting lowered engine vibration at highway speed after fitment.
The OEM damper utilises a cast iron dual damping mass, mounted to the hub using a bearing that oscillates as engine vibrations are absorbed. Over time, the bearing wears through its hard casing, which transfers additional heat, friction and stress through the bonded rubber. Eventually, this leads to a partial, or complete, failure of the rubber bond or breakage of the hub/damping mass, leading to accelerated engine wear and increased vibration, which can often be felt through the cabin. The risk of failure is accelerated when operating in dusty, muddy and harsh 4×4 environments.
