    Hi Everyone,
    Jeff Gerner (FRP) & I have been working on providing Fluidampr’s for the community for the last year.
    We have been taking the 2.7TT Fluidampr’s and modifying them to work on Inline-5 motors.
    They have been priced at $800-$900 depending on the engine code and all be it a somewhat successful product , I am getting a lot of the age old “but its too much” or “for a pulley?”

    The fluidampr has a few flaws:
    - Not useable on a 3B or 7A without converting to serpentine accessories
    - Not useable with the OEM crank locking tool due to the envelope provided by Fluidampr
    - Multi part assembly i.e. many parts need to come together to make it happen.

    I get asked at least twice a week for a 3B or ADU version and we simply don’t have an option for them .
    After talking with both Jeff & Fluidampr today , we would like to move forward with a production unit that will work across all the inline-5’s

    It will still be a 2 piece assembly but not what you are thinking.
    The centre hub will be as per the OEM , i.e. it will work with the OEM crank locking tool but there will be 2 big advantages.

    1. To keep the weight down , the drive rings will be machined from aluminum. That means if you have an AAN , you get a 6 rib drive ring. If you have a 3B , you get (3) v-belt rings and so on and so forth.
    2. The rear will have the timing belt sprocket machined into the hub as 1 complete operation

    Ball park price will be $450-500 and will work on the following motors:
    - 7A
    - 3B
    - AAN
    - ADU
    - ABY
    AND will have the timing belt sprocket as part of the assembly. There will also be 2 pilot holes in the crank bolt snout to allow additional dowel pinning of the crankshaft to the Fluidampr.

    3 problems:
    1. In order to make this happen , we need commitment from 50 people
    2. Lead time will be anywhere from 3-6 months
    3. A non-refundable $150 deposit will be required.

    I don’t usually ask for much from the inline-5 community but I would love to see this brought to market.
    This is **** or get off the pot time…

    And go

      How long is it planned to run this GB? I would love to jump in on this, but have a few things to sort with the car first.

        Once we get to 25 people , I will give the green light to Fluidampr and start taking deposits.
        from last night to this morning we are now at 21 people.

                you will only need 1 fluidampr and 2 adapter rings in that case
                a ring for ABY and a ring for 3B but the centre will be interchangeable.
                Thats the beauty of this design.
