I sent this out once before and I got one reply but in 
back and forth communications I mentioned that I didn't want the 
person to go too far out of his way and then he didn't answer me 
anymore. Sooooo... I have sent it out again as a reminder as the 
better weather is upon us and recent messages have reminded me about 
others visiting the grave yards of old iron, I figured maybe someone 
is cleaning out or planning a visit to one of these places... I 
really need to go out there once again to revive old memories, 
however most of the better places have been picked over too well... I 
recently went to find a harmonic balancer because mine had cracked 
and was directed to the old engine pile which turned out to be a 
large pile of foreign carcasses all aluminium with very few 
american/chevy  engines at all... But I spent an hour picking thru 
the pile in hopes that I might find the one discarded balancer that 
would fit all to no avail... It still brought back memories. I 
visited several yards that day...By chance I did find one thru a 
relative that knew exactly which one I wanted and found it in the 
back lot in a abandoned trailer in a basket of balancers he placed 
there ten or so years ago.. Its amazing what people have stored and 
still remember they have it never mind finding where they stored it.  
So here it is and thanks to all.
