- Apply a small amount of RTV sealant to the damper keyway groove.
- On the B Series Pick-up with the 3.0L engine, use a crankshaft damper installation tool to press the damper onto the crankshaft. Install and tighten the retaining bolt to 93-121 ft. lbs. (125-165 Nm).
Never hammer on the damper to install it.
