    Not trying to hijack this thread or anything but what is the benefit of putting a fluid dampner ( balancer ) on a rotating assembly that's already been internally balanced?

    The balancer is just neutral anyway correct?

    I thought they were only of benefit on a motor that was externally balanced?

    Learn me.

    I think your terminology is getting in the way. It is not a balancer it is a vibration dampener. Doesn't matter if it is internal or external balanced engine as far as the job the dampener is doing, it only matters as far as whether or not it has the extra balance weight on it for internal or external. It still does the same job on either. I hope this makes sense.
