Default Re: Fan came apart!!

My very first vehicle was a stock flathead Ford V-8 1950 F-1 panel truck purchased for $25.00 in 1971. The stock fan was 4 blades until the day one blade broke off while the engine was just idling. That fateful day I heard a big bang upon investigating I discovered the now missing blade was sticking out of one of the lower radiator hose! All the coolant hitting the ground was a good indicator of something not right. Dam good thing no one was looking under the hood at the time. That Panel truck is long gone but I still have that 8BA and the used fan i put on her so long ago..
I use the F word a lot no not that word these words Flathead , Focus and Finish.
