Re: New Two Blade Fan

With mine, there was a casting line on the under surface of the water pump that was causing the issue. As soon as I filed this away, the fan did not make contact.

Re: Help me identify engine noise?

I think I've now determined that this has something to do with the clutch. Seems like when I shove the clutch in the noise gets better, then slightly worsens when the clutch is let out. I did grease...

Re: Water Pump ID and Questions

When you have the pump out, take out the four studs in the head and replace them with these. Then, you'll be easy on-easy off going forward...

Re: Generator output too high.

It is always worth mentioning to ensure that you have good generator ground. Poor ground can cause an overcharge situation.

Re: External voltage regulator

Get a hold of Tom Wesenberg. He's on this forum. He builds a regulator that goes underneath the steel band of the generator and you use either an original cutout or a diode conversion. I've been...

Re: Help me identify engine noise?
