[Healeys] Strange Crankshaft Damper

There are two dampers shown in the parts manual for BJ7/BJ8, the earlier one from BJ7 up to BJ8 engine serial  29K/RU/H10271.  This is a two-piece item with the pulley separate from the hub.  The later damper with integral pulley is effective from engine 29K/RU/H10272 and up.

My BJ8 engine is 29K/RU/H11327 and it has the later integral damper.  It has a different configuration on the front to the damper shown in Harold’s photo.  I don’t believe his damper is from a BJ8.

That looks to be the correct damper for a late BJ8 engine.

A member our Healey club has started a restoration of a BJ8 with an unknown history. There wasn’t a serial number or any identify marks on the engine but the engine was painted blue and has a strange crankshaft damper. See attached picture. Does anyone recognize this crankshaft damper? Was it an aftermarket option back in the day? Did it come from a Westminster or ????
