Harmonic Balancer bolt and were'd everyone go?

Glad to be back on the forum, it looks like a ghost town. I know I had dropped off because I was taking care of my parents then Covid hospitalized both my son and wife. My wife almost died. I hope everyone out there has been better than my family.

Anyways this is the General FSJ Tech section so:

1. Can I reuse my Harmonic Balancer bolt? When I was younger, I was told it was a one use item. The bolt stretches so replace it.

2. If I do have to replace it does someone have a source or a Dorman part number?

Thanks,

Joe

Nice to hear your family is better, not perfect, but they are here.

Kudos to you for taking care of everyone like you are. Hang in there, and enjoy having a little of your own time, to turn some wrenches again.

Its good for the soul.

Never heard of only one time use for this one, as there is not really any load on it.

Only for u-bolts as they get stretched each time they are installed.

If it were mine, I would use the same harmonic balancer bolt till the truck rusts back to the earth it came from

Glad to hear you and yours are ok.

Never heard of that for a Jeep engine. I would read the TSM. If it says to replace it, then do.

If you need it, it will be in the Jeep factory parts book, available on the Tom Collins site, free to read and download. I believe there is a book there that covers '86 and '88. Search for the Jeep factory part number online, ie "Jeep Jxxxxxxxxxx".
