harmonic balancer for a 4.2 258 Carb?

I've done some searching but I couldn't find anything definitive.
I have an '89 YJ Laredo with a 4.2 258ci carbd. My harmonic balancer was about to fall off today so I took it apart and I got a Dorman 594-018 from a local parts store. This was the wrong part, the other pulleys didn't line up with it.

I can't find any Chrysler part numbers or any aftermarket harmonic balancer/crankshaft pulley/vibration damper for this model year YJ. All I see are "sleeve repair kits". This model has a serp belt.

All help is greatly apprecated on my DD.

I have an original 89 4.2 5spd. w/air, non-CA and don't have a serpentine belt. Maybe yours was "updated" at some point. Others chime in, is it possible a late 89 has a serp. belt? I've never seen one.

Thanks Kik. The only thing I can find around my engine bay is a recall notice for "emissions". The sticker is pretty beat up but I can make out that the recall was performed.

If I go to some of these "Dealer Parts for Less" websites, I can search through their catalog of parts and the part comes up for my specific situation. It won't, however, give me a J number to cross reference. The idiots at Autozone can't find the correct part.

Just thought I'd update everyone: Got in contact with a local parts store and they were able to find the correct J # for this part: J3237723. After searching online I found the same number on a few forums. This part is not made aftermarket and must be ordered through a Jeep Dealer or, Morris4x4.
