EF/EL Balancers are the same, you believe you can also use an AU balancer.

Does anyone know if the ef el harmonic balancer knocks when stuffed ? swc said he thinks an AU hb will fit. so does anyone know for sure if EF,EL,AU are all the same harmonic balancer ? :roll:

the knock you are hearing - is it the actual balancer - or the crank / rods because the balancer is not doing its thing? If so I'd be worried about the bearings or even breaking the crank... don't think you should use it until you are sure....

That knock could be rods/pistons.....also could be loose torque converter bolts.
When the engine mounts in them stuff up, they make the car shake.
