My engine damper reads 13lbs on a scale when moved through it's range of motion. Curiously my spare also reads 13lbs resistance. I figure they are both past their useful life.

Even though my engine is balanced and runs smoothly there is still motion allowed by the motor mounts. I found this on Ebay and have been using it for about 500 miles:

It has urethane cones inside to allow movement in both directions. Resistance increases as the cones are compressed.

It seems to work fine. I haven't noticed any additional harshness or vibration. Your mileage may vary.
