Ok here is the picture of the front crank pully we put on the wild cherry. 2 As promised Maybe this will slow down the torsional vibration or harmonic vibration. And the rev limiter Crank pulley

Great idea with a harmonic balancer to reduce the torsional stress that causes metal fatigue. Ideally the balancer should be designed for the specific crank and application, but will hopefully help anyway.

How is the engine held in the front with such a short pan?

There are engine mounts on the side of the engine attached to the pan rail bolts and main bearing bolts. We had a limited range of choices for the balancer because of diameter and crank diameter constraints. Ideally it should be tuned for this specific engine but anything is better than nothing. This one is from a 2.3 liter Ford ranger or suv engine.

Sort of related but sort of OT also, there is a supplier of parts and service to the old car hobby, focusing more on A's than anything else who offers Model A flywheels with a harmonic balancer attached to the engine side of the flywheel. Don't waste your money. Totally worthless as it is the free end of the crank which needs the calming effect of a torsional vibration damper.

Robert, you've got the balancer on the correct (front) end of the crank. Good for you.

The Wild Cherry II is running and we are getting it tuned for the races on Saturday. Wish us luck. We are up against model A racers with big motors and big bucks. Racing a model T block leaves us with limitations of rod bearing size and stroke because the rods hit the camshaft if you push it too far. Our advantage is light weight and support from the crowd. You gotta love the underdog. This model T will bite back.
