In a bind. Help please

Hey guys I was screwing around a bit ago and the damper on my 08 GT let go. The two metal pieces slid apart and let the belt slip off. My question is, will the damper from my friends 2v work? The pulley is the same size but the weight is larger. Can I use it or will it hurt something?

The harmonic balancer right? They are pretty engine specific I believe. I know the 08 Bullitt had a revised hb over the GT because of its higher redline to 6500. And since the 3V has more valve spring drag than the 2V I wouldn't want to use it.
Seems like Gary 2k7gtcs had to get a specific one on his Bronco thread and found a place pretty reasonable. Seems like they could rebuild or sell a new one. Can't remember for sure.

EDIT: here's the thread

Well we ended up putting it on. Seems to be fine for now. Just wanted something to get home. Since, if I recall correctly, the engine is neutrally balanced I figured it would be fine. I looked up if they could be interchanged on google. I didn't find a direct answer but I did find a company that made a performance balancer which was the same part number for 2v 3v and 4v motors.

Interesting. I can understand limping home with it but personally I wouldn't push it.
Are all three rated the same redline? I would think that's important to balance crank speed.
Yet a SOHC 2V crank w/16 valve springs has to bump against less pressure than a SOHC 3V w/24 valves, and much less than a DOHC 4V w/32 valves.
What about Ford part numbers? Are they the same for all three engines?

I certainly would get the correct one and install it

The weight is specific to the motor and crankshaft

You said you have an 08 GT

My question is why did the original let go? How many miles? Are you running and SC or something

Sure they let go but 4-5 years seems awfully quick

Maybe somebody tried to pull it before for some reason and used a claw type pulley puller and not the bolt type HB puller

Well the outer metal part slid forward on the insulator after a burnout. No blower. Full bolt ons and cams 329rwhp. 88k miles. Think I'm gonna order the steeda Underdrive kit today. She's seen the track quite a bit too
