I have a 75 280Z with the L28 in it. My harmonic balancer and crank are all screwed up. I'm looking a complete l28 engine from a junk yard to use for parts to rebuild my engine. What is a fair price for a complete engine? What other years will interchange with my crank and balancer?

Thanks in advance,
Mark

Long block goes for about 100 bucks in So. Fla. I don't think there are any differances in the L-28 cranks (not absolutly sure though), and your crank is internally balanced so the harmonic balancer is really just a crank pulley, they interchange. Big trick here is to use a 240 pulley (lighter weight) to get some free hp. didja bend the crank somehow?

The balancer was loose and it vibrated and wore out the keyway in the crank and balancer.
