Re: Westerbeke Damper plate

Wow! That's a bad track record. Is it the springs that are giving way, or is there something else that is breaking? Are you sure your engine is properly aligned? Stupid question, but is the transmission properly supported? Is there something else in the propulsion system that could be adding vibration at a particular RPM (or at WOT) that would contribute to the damping plate breaking?
