Ford Mustang Crankshafts & Dampers

Mustang crankshafts & dampers are two parts that work together to drive your Mustang and make your ride as comfortable as possible. With your Mustang Crankshafts & Dampers working so closely together, it's likely that you would want to replace them together, especially since it is a sizable process to take apart your engine to replace either the Mustang crankshafts & dampers.

The Mustang crankshaft handles an important role for your Mustang engine. The Mustang crankshaft is attached to each of the pistons. After the fuel/air mixture in the cylinder is compressed and ignited and the piston moves, the Mustang crankshaft turns. Since the Mustang crankshaft is attached to each of the pistons, the force of their movements is constantly turning the Mustang crankshaft. The Mustang crankshaft also features an odd shape/design, as it needs to be in constant motion as the different pistons are in different stages of their rotation, which requires an odd design to accommodate those positions. The motion of the Mustang crankshaft, powered by the pistons, is indirectly what turns the wheels of your Mustang. The Mustang crankshaft is attached to the Mustang flywheel at one end and, often, the Mustang damper at the other.

The Mustang damper helps reduce the vibrations that can happen at certain speeds from the irregular rotational movement of the pistons. The Mustang damper also helps protect the Mustang crankshaft from damage, as some of those vibrations can get pretty severe. Some drivers will remove Mustang dampers in order to save weight, though this is a risky move, since the Mustang dampers are key to protecting the crankshaft and Mustang cylinder heads, so there could be damage without Mustang dampers. Both Mustang crankshafts & dampers are available from CJ Pony Parts, so you can get what you need to tackle both of these complex jobs.
