The Best Laid Plans, etc, etc,

I thought I had everything all figured out. The vibration damper was missing on the engine when I purchased my Durant D60.
No problem, Frank has a spare 14L engine for me, however, the vibration damper was badly corroded and broken up.
No problem, Frank has another spare 14L engine for an earlier Durant, however, it has a smaller front crankshaft journal than the later Durant 14L's.
No problem, I have a spare 15U that has a good looking vibration damper on it. That was two months ago.
Today, I removed the one on the 15U and found that it was too big for the Durant 14L's.
No problem, I have a very large network of Durant affectionadoes and there must be someone, somewhere, somehow, that has a spare 14L vibration damper to fit a crankshaft journal of 1.435" and has a seal shoulder of 2.087".
Am I right????
